I went to Maithon Dam along with my mother, wife, and 2 sons. I travelled by boat in the Barakar River opposite the Maithon Dam. It was a marvellous experience. We saw the hillocks in the place. There was lovely water. The winter weather was charming. We saw the bridge of Majumdar Nivas as well. We saw the hills green with vegetation in January, 2021.

Ideal for weekend break. It takes about 3-3.5 hours with a tea break at Saktigarh. The dam is in between the state of West Bengal and Jharkhand. The best place to stay is Majumdar Niwas which is next to the dam. Kalyaneswari temple is very near by and falls on the way. Best time is winter.
