There is an interesting place at Paschim Medinipur District of West Bengal- Nayagram.
It may called true "Jangal Mahal".
A new bridge opened recently name " Jangal Kanya" across Subarna Rekha river connecting mainland of West Bengal with the "Jangal Mahal"- Nayagram Block. 48 km from Kharagpur.
This is the Gateway.
After entering you will reach the beautiful forest areas. Most interesting is Topaban (as describes in Ramayana) & Rameswaram Temple. The journey will be memorable with the beautiful roads through the jungle or along the bank of the river. You can find many places as picnic spots.
The river is very wide here. The vast sand bed of river may reminds you the desert.
