But believe me Fuldungri Hill will not enchant you. It is full of broken pieces of beer bottle. It is not maintained at all.Then visit 
Bibhuti Bhusan Bandhyopadhyay’s House. Then vist to Ratmohona to watch Sunset. Ratmohona is the best place in ghatshila to watch sunset. Then again back to hotel and stay night in Ghatshila.
