Gift of God on earth

Pachmarhi is a unique place for all specially nature lover. it has rare flora and fauna which must be preserved at any cost and made known to people by giving them guided tours. it is a historically important as well. one feels proud to visit the hills gave shelter to freedom fighters. also it is an excellent example of preservation of our natural heritage by infusing spiritual color to it. many places named after mahadev, is the best done to protect the place. the people respect the nature which is very important in the era of consumerism and materialism. it is gift of God on earth.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food was okay sight seeing was excellent. guide was very well informed and have pleasant manners.

Activities & things to do: Paragliding was already there. guided tour to people specially youth of the natural heritage. there is large number of rare herbs and plants in Pachmarhi which must be preserved and the knowledge about them must be given to all. proper naming of plants must be done. a digest and picture books of flora must be sold. the museum should be given more attention and new pictures and information must be given on animals. Proper documentation of Pachmarhi should be given in a CD.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Only menace of monkey. There should be a way to harmonise relations with them tourism and forest department should work together.

Pakur Overview

Pakur is an administrative district which is situated on the north-eastern corner of Jharkhand. This district is surrounded by Sahebganj District in the north and Dumka district in the south. Hilly area, rolling area and alluvial area are the three topographical divisions of this district. Bansloi, Brahmini, Bansloi and Torai are the main rivers flowing through the district.

Covering an area of 686.21 sq km, this district comprises seven blocks; namely Pakur (Urban), Pakur (Rural), Hiranpur, Littipara, Amrapara, Pakuria and Maheshpur. The headquarters of this district is based at Pakur city, which was previously known as Pakaur.

In the ancient times, this district comprised two estates known as Pakur Raj and Maheshpur Raj. Today, the district is inhabited by over 7 lakh people who are mainly engaged in agricultural and allied activities.

Economically, this district generates the highest revenues for Howrah Railway Division, as it supplies a large amount of black stone chips across India.
