Jharkhand - The Land of Forests

The breathtakingly beautiful and nature endowed state of Jharkhand, carved out of the state of Bihar a few years ago, is situated in the lovely Chhotanagpur Plateau, in the eastern India. Enclosed by verdant green hills, the state is famous for its rich mineral wealth, virginal beauty of the jungles, superb wildlife and wonderful waterfalls which appear straight out of lovely picture cards.

Rich cultural and historical heritage, vast bio-diversity, nice climate and breathtaking scenic splendor of the state pull a large number of tourists from across the world making Jharkhand one of the most visited states of India.

Jharkhand Tourist Attractions

Ranchi (state capital), Hazaribagh, Dhanbad, Netarhat, Palmau… these are just some of the most visited tourist destinations, while Ma Chhina Mastika Temple, War Cemetery, Betla National Park, Hazaribagh Wildlife Sanctuary, Hundru Falls, Deogarh, Netarhat and Parasnath Hill are some of the key tourist attractions of Jharkhand.

However, the USP of the state is its striking wildlife. The natural wonder Jharkhand boasts of a rich variety of flora and fauna. To see them, one has to visit the many national parks and zoological gardens of Jharkhand. The Betla National Park and the Hazaribagh National Park are the key wildlife sanctuaries of Jharkhand and perhaps the most visited ones as well.

Betla National Park

Situated 25 kms away from Daltonganj, the Betla National Park (Palamu) covers an area of around 250 sq. kms and is a Project Tiger Reserve. It boasts of, apart from tigers, wildboars, elephants, bisons (gaurs), sambars, antelopes, langurs, blue bulls and spotted deers. A visit to this wildlife reserve proves to be an experience of a lifetime for all, more so for the discerning wildlife and nature aficionados.

Hazaribagh Wildlife Sanctuary

Though not as well-known as Betla National Park, the Hazaribagh Wildlife Sanctuary is no less appealing or interesting than the former. It is situated 135 kms away from Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, and is set in an ecosystem which is rather akin to the Betla National Park.

Apart from these, a Zoological Garden is also located at a distance of 16 kms from Ranchi, where many mammalian species could be seen in all their glory.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the state is in winters (October-March) as summers are rather hot and humid.
