  • Awesome picnic spot. The height is so high. You will get tired by climbing and reaching to the water. Apart from that the spot and location is so nice purely natural creation. The depth of water is not dangerous. You can enjoy the water without knowing swimming. Standing below the fall of water is a tremendous experience. The vehicle route for Jonha is full of valley so be careful while driving or riding. Many times accidents occurred in that route.

  • Beautiful place. Easily accessible by road. It takes about 45 minutes to reach. Road conditions very good. You can carry own food or can get food there also. Locals cook simple meals - vegetarian and non vegetarian both. They also help with carrying stuff and kids ti reach the falls. Its a downward climb towards the falls. While coming back you have to climb up. There's a small children's park also. A good place for day trip with family.

Where to stay in Ranchi

For a city with relatively little tourist appeal, Ranchi offers a surprising selection of accommodations. The majority of these come in the form of small hotels and guesthouses close to the train station. Unfortunately, many budget-friendly options offer only basic amenities and maintain questionable standards of hygiene. For something more comfortable, consider the options along the northern section of Main Road, where you can find larger modern hotels, including global chain brands.
