Last month I was returning from my native Jhumri Telaiya to Patna, as the train passed through the valleys of Chotnagpur region, looking at the clouds increased my lust to chase the monsoon. Jharkhand is one of the few underrate and ignored spots in terms of tourism and travel. For me it was a chance to explore the pristine beauty that these places offer, simply untouched where you can see nature in its full form.
While the train passed from these valleys filled with clouds I decided to visit Jharkhand in August.
Places visited, Jhumri Telaiya, Koderma.
Ranchi via Hazaribagh, Patratu and Ramgarh
Jamshedpur – Dimna Lake, Dalma Hills
Mode of transport.
A threewheeler with a cart attached (I am yet to give it a name)
Finally the day arrived when I boarded the train early morning going to Koderma and as we reached the boarder of Jharkhand this is how I was welcomed. Before starting the trail I was confused and worried that what and why am I doing this, but once I saw the clouds descending over the mountains I knew that I am doing the right thing.
Next day after I reached Ranchi I took a bus for Netarhat. The untouched, pristine beauty that this place offered during the monsoons was simply incredible. In the route of Ranchi and Netarhat, this waterfall showed up in middle of nowhere. Too bad that trekking was no possible because of slippery rocks and leeches in the forest.
