Perfect place for a adventurous holiday.

The scenic beauty and adventure sports are the reason for visitors to come to jhallong . The river camp, the adventure spot, the chapramari forests are must visits if you are at jhallong . The local food mostly include momos and thukpas which is as usual very tasty . We went to the wild life sanctuaries and I along with some friends also went at some of the adventure spots . Try to avoid the rainy season if you are planning a visit. The spring is the best time as because the weather remains pleasant and your trip will be a memorable one.
