According to legend, Damodar Sekhar established Panchkot Raj probably during early 90 AD and expanded his kingdom over several other parganas. To give recognition to the main five (panch) clans (khunt) of the locals the kingdom assumed the name Panchkot. The kingdom was probably a part of old "Tilakampa Kingdom". The ruins of Telkupi, the said capital of Tilakampa, submerged after the construction of Panchet Dam.

We had an Excellent Garpanchkot Tour with NatureWings. This was an weekend trip and NatureWings made it perfectly. In short we had only one complain that "We could not do any complain". Start to end a perfect trip with amazing followup from Kolkata team. Thank you naturewings.
Garpanchkot is a wonderful place from the crowdedness of the city and pollution. The 2 days trip passed so smoothly that we didn't understand how its gone. Amazing food, service and every trivial detail was taken care by representative of panchet resort and from naturewings. The ambience is so wonderful that I am planning to come here again in monsoon. I am sure in monsoon it will be an amazing place to be in touch with nature. So, I would like to request naturewings to plan my next trip during monsoon. Nature wings, Thanks and keep it up 👍
Xcellent trip. Kudos naturewings, you proved it again
It is a very beautiful place in the lap of mother nature. Best place to escape from noise and crowed and to get relaxed. Price is reasonable for what they offer.
