Kolkata (Calcutta) Warnings and Dangers: 31 reviews and 37 photos

When walking in the older areas of Kolkata- beware the dreaded potholes! I turned my ankle really badly in one interesting little lane. There is not one square foot of pavement without cracks and potholes. We even saw uncovered manholes. A torch at night helps.- there are no streetlights in many older areas.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
