Through the Eastern Ghat Roads of Jharkhand

It had been a tough summer for me on my road trip through Central India till I reached the Eastern Ghats of Jharkhand. The temperatures started dropping as soon as I started climbing the winding roads of Jharkhand.

It did not pinch when I rolled down my car windows as the wind was nice and pleasant. The entire place was dense in lively green. The roads wound and climbed till Ghumla, a small town enroute to Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand.

This stretch of ghat roads has some amazing view points and when I did stop at one, the panoramic view that greeted me was incredible. The valley and the hills formed a near perfect co-existence.

  1. As a fellow traveller from the state of Jharkhand, I must say, I was impressed by the way you captured Ranchi. Though I take it for granted that the Jharkhand segment is short because people don't really know about this state. I run a travel blog myself concentrating on Hazaribagh, a town 100km North of Ranchi.

  2. Thank you Mihir! I have a long history with Jharkhand. In fact, spent my entire childhood there...at Jamshedpur...
