    Dangmal is a good place to be with family and friends for a couple of days. I visited Dangmal during january,2011. The well known Bhitarkanika forest and the wildlife tour is worth seeing. If you have seen the sunderbans and liked it, then you will also love Bhitarkanika forest. The Gahirmatha Marine Wildlife Sanctuary mustn’t be missed. As mentioned here, it is better to avoid rainy season.
