Ajodhya Pahar

Located in the district of Purulia in West Bengal bordering Jharkhand, Ajodhya Pahar (hills) is a part of the extensive Chota Nagpur Plateau dotted with waterfalls, lakes, dense sub-tropical forests, dams and exotic tribal villages. Most of the hills in this region have an average altitude of around 2000 feet, the highest being Gorshaburu at 2800 feet.

It is one of the least explored regions of India and has experienced very low tourist footfalls in the past. However, the absence of mass tourism has been a boon to the preservation of the fragile eco-system of this region. So, tourists visiting Ajodhya Pahar today can still experience unscathed nature in all its beauty. You can still see the Palash bloom in late winter when the forest seems to be on fire and the kaash phools swaying to the winds in early Autumn on dry riverbeds. Apart from its natural splendor, Ajodhya Pahar also nurtures its unique tribal culture and village life with colourful mud houses and Chow Dance.

Earlier, curious travellers craving for adventure and quietness would not find affordable and good quality accommodation in Ajodhya Pahar. But, recently, some nice cottages, home stays, guesthouses, lodges and camps have come up and now guests can enjoy their stay in Ajodhya Pahar and explore its beauty.
