"Full of fun and masti" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
A very nice city to visit. I visited in the month of December and it was very chill.. The stations are clean enough for the people to walk - plenty of hotels available near the station. Places that I visited were the dams, stadiums, tiger hills and many more small sightseeing places. This is a nice city to visit and have fun with family or friends. Don't forget to carry your camera; the pictures at the hills are always awesome.

"Ranchi is enriched with a lots of sightseeing"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Mar 28, 2014
Ranchi is surrounded by mountains and green flora, enriched with a lots of sightseeing. There are a number of waterfalls, some of them I visited like Jonha Fall, Hundru Fall, Sita Fall etc. It was a really nice experience. I also visited Hazaribagh Wildlife Santuary, approx 110 km from Ranchi. It was a bit adventurous tour, but enjoyed a lot.

"Ranchi Experience"

  • 3/7
  • Posted Nov 9, 2013
Ranchi used to be a Hill station but not any more. City is very crowded with long traffic jams. Still you can see more then 40 years old petrol autos which are running on the roads & contribute high on pollution. Summers are hot as temp is more then 40 degrees. Winters start bit early and stay longer as compared to rest of the Jharkand. It is well connected by Road, Rail and Air. Best nearby visit place is Netarhat and Betla but again roads quality is a concern.

"Good city"

  • Posted May 8, 2013
It is a clean city having all natural beautiful views. Very cool city. People seems to be very innocent. They guide people with correct directions as I had to have surprise visit to my office. People guided me very correctly without cheating or taking me unnecessaryly around the city. Some areas like Court area and other one or two places are little crowded and requires good policing . I enjoyed very nice local fruits which I can not name now. Overall it is very nice city.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: I had food in a Hotel where Asamee preparation of Non veg was served and was very nice one. I do not remember the name of the Hotel. Wollen clothes are very good and cheap. Stone garden and some lakes are very beautiful,

Activities & things to do: site seeing and purchasing

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: You should go by Air or train.

"Ranchi a travellers Tale"

  • Posted May 6, 2013
Ranchi is a platue situated in chotanagpur range and is capital of Jharkhand. It has a city population of more than 11lacs. The importnace of ranchi is manly due to rich mining and related activities arround Ranchi and the State of Jharkhand. Ranchi being the oly gateway to Mineral and industry rich Jharkhand by Air to the rest of the world.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: the Local food is mix of North eastren taste not much spicy but with eithe Bengali flavour or Bihari Flavour. Not a place where you can feast in speciality resturants of Fine dinning resturants. One has to be content with the food served in the hotel you stay. Not a great Place for shopping as it is like any other B class town in est India. Nothing special about local craft or speciality.

Activities & things to do: It does not provide you with any holiday activities of leisure . Although there are few wild life sancturies nearby and few water falls nearby but its not at all equiped to handle tourist from outside the state.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: ranchi is connected by Air from Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkatta. It has a railway station which is well connected from rest of the country. It lacs basic public transport facility and that can can heavy toll on your purse if you do not have your own vehicle. be careful while travelling out side the city.

"I generally visit Ranchi for..."

  • Posted Apr 27, 2013
I generally visit Ranchi for official work, but there are a lot of places one can explore in and around Ranchi. There are many falls, that come alive in the monsoon.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: In terms of food, pretty limited options. Though one can try the local flavour, litti-chokha. For shopping i found Jharcraft to be a good place, specially for local craft items.

Activities & things to do: Trekking and hiking to nearby falls.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Flight, trains, buses.
