  • Place is good for picknik purpose.. But you have to take everything as their is no such stuff available. Place is quite good.
  • This wildlife sanctuary is at distance of 16 km from Hazaribagh, meaning Thousand Tigers, and set in the undulating Chhota Nagpur Plateau coered with tropical deciduous forests and this quiet town's environs were once famous for their tiger population. But, as a result of deforestation, most of the tigers are gone and seeing a tiger from one of the ten viewing platforms is now rare. But there are wild boars, nilgai and leopard, and its thick forests are a haven for birdlife.
