Jharkhand is home to fresh waterfalls and lush forests, and one of the key pilgrimage sites for Jain followers. Foreign tourists are rare in Jharkhand, and it is a perfect place for anyone wanting to explore areas off the beaten track.
A recommendation what not to miss in Jharkhand is Betla National Park. Here you can go on elephant safari and search for the elephants’ wild relatives, leopards and rare tigers. 200 small villages lie in the National Park, inhabited by local tribes. In the middle of the jungle you can find remains of two 16th century forts.
Parasnath in eastern Jharkhand is an important Jain pilgrimage centre. On top of Parasnath Hill you can find Sikayi, the actual pilgrimage site with many temples. Views from the top of the hill are very rewarding.
