Biharinath is in Bankura.
Biharinath is the highest hill in sub-Himalayan West Bengal. It is 451 m (1,480 ft) high.
Biharinath is 16km from Madhukunda, a railway station on the Asansol-Adra track and off the Saltora-Madhukunda road.
One can travel by road from Raniganj via Saltora or across the Damodar River over the bridge near Sanctoria, travel a little towards Raghunathpur and turn left for the road to Madhukunda and then on to Biharinath.
Generally, road transport is not available for travel from Madhukunda railway station. It is better to hire a car for both-ways travel from either Raniganj or Asansol. Rates are negotiable. Taxi drivers quote rather high to start with. Be a hard bargainer!
