A Trip to Jamtara

I had been to Jamtara by road in the month of September 2016. Jamtara is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Jharkhand. Parwat Vihar Park is a must-visit attraction in Jamtara. The Jamtara district was formed on 26th April, 2001 by carving out 4 blocks from Dumka District. The district is located at the lower altitude of the Chotanagpur plateau. The nearest airports are Kolkata and Ranchi while Jamtara is on the main line of Eastern Railway. There are regular bus services to Jamtara from Patna, Asansol, Ranchi, Dumka and Chittaranjan, from among other cities of regional and national importance. The Parwat Vihar Park is located on the northern side of Jamtara and it is a good attraction for children of all ages. The sunrise and sunset are a must-visit to be experienced by intending tourists from across the globe.
