It's great to hangout with friends

It's great to plan a trip with friends and it's even better to visit Johna Falls with them as the sight, the refreshing air, bathing under a waterfall and the amazing place for selfie. What else one require for a perfect friends trip. Also, not to forget the ride from Jonha to sita falls. That's even great to have a long ride with your besties and cherish those memories.

one of the best place to sit and think

Its the best place to sit and think, write ( if you can), if you visit there you will feel like you are in the lap of nature, you will also feel the warmth, sound and love of nature. Its a good place for couples and writers.

Safest Fall in Ranchi

Jonha Fall lies around 40 km from Ranchi main town. Road is good with beautiful surroundings. We reached there by 7:30 am, at that time only few peoples were there. We also took bath under the fall on the left side towards the mountains. Rocks are less slippery there, you can also sit over the rocks under the waterfall. Stay of 2 hours is enough there. You have to climb around 500 stairs back to come on the ground and to the parking area.
