"Beautiful place for mental peace"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 10, 2017
Awesome experience to reach the top of hill. The sceneries are very good to see especially the road which takes to the hill top was very nice. It is a place for mental peace. Not for the persons who lovers partying every time. Heaven to the peace lovers and trekking freaks. Natural habitats and other tribal glimpse of this place will say you to come again.

Quench your thirst for nature as much as you can! If you are hungry for the rural India and rural beauty of Bengal. It's flavour and to be blessed with the warmth of the local villagers in spite of the poverty. You should visit this place many many times in your life!!

"A favourite weekend destination on a small hill"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 25, 2016
Located at a distance of almost 80 km from Jamshedpur and almost 40 km from Purulia, the Ayodhya Hill is a favourite destination of mainly the picnickers and adventure loving people. The hill has got a full package of attraction including a huge hydro electric project, two massive reservoirs as upper and lower dam and a picturesque road to climb the hill. If you love to have some more adventure, you can trek down the hill along with a small hilly rivulet. If you plan a night stay, you have to opt for the forest rest house or the tourist guest house, and a prior booking for the both is advised. For the local sightseeing, you can arrange an SUV which is available locally.

"Nothing much to see - Skip this"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted Dec 28, 2015
I visited this place which is 90km from my place (Raghunathpur, Purulia DT) by road with family and friends after it was figured prominently in West Bengal tourism brochure. We hoped, since it is being promoted by state tourism department, that it would be some kind of historical place. We are very disappointed on reaching the place. There is nothing much to see there except for a dam. There is a waterfalls in the vicinity but it's not worth the trouble as road to waterfalls is in very bad condition. You can visit this place only if you are in the near vicinity and have to pass your time with nothing better to do.

"Beautiful with dense forest"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 29, 2015
We visited there in 2nd November 2014, the hill was beautiful with dense forest. Full day enjoying the nature, we were the only visitors in the hill. Some time we felt insecurity, we recommend you to visit this place between December to January. In those days there have many visitors with you.

"The greenery with hills"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 20, 2015
Visit this hills in Winter where the chilliness and the greenery intermingles with each other. Beware of the mosquitoes, preferably carry a repellent. The place is addictive due to the scenic beauty and peacefulness. A must to go site if you are en route Purulia.

"Green hill abode of Santhals"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 7, 2015
We took a cab from Purulia town to cover the trip. It took about 40 mins to reach the foot hill and then we started to climb the hill by serpentine roads enjoying the view of thick forest of sal on two sides of the road. In between we saw water spring and falls and nobody knows from where and how this water flow is maintained throughout the year when rainfall in the area is quite limited. We came down by other side of the hill through Santhal Village, tiny cottages are very well-maintained with cheerful children playing around and domestic animals enjoying their gazing time. So peaceful and so friendly an environment chills one down to his spine and compels one to feel what we are missing in our busy routine city life. There is tourist set up at the place with accommodation, food and bathroom facilities. One can book this stay at the place from the concerned Govt. Dept. Office in Kolkata. The charges are quite reasonable.

We went there on a bike tour. The roads are good and the beautiful nature around is awesome. The upper and lower dam of the hydro project also was good. One can have fun at Bamni Falls.
