City of Waterfalls

Ranchi sits on the Chota Nagpur Plateau, its elevation of 651 m (2,136 ft) giving it a relatively mild climate by the region's standards. Declared the capital of the freshly formed Jharkhand state in 2000, the city saw an influx of people moving there to work in predominantly administrative jobs, with the population quickly growing to over a million. Waterfalls serve as the most popular attractions in Ranchi, with the city making a great base to explore the surrounding nature. While the city center itself offers little to interest tourists, a nearby temple stands out as a highlight of any Ranchi itinerary. Our India tour planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

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.
