The Place : Ayodhya Hills District : Purulia

Ayodhya Hills is an extension of the Dolma Hills of Jharkhand. It is an extremely picturesque getaway with hills, dales, tall trees, springs, tranquil lakes, a river and clear blue skies. A visit to beautiful waterfalls, deep forests, tribal villages, Gorshabru and Mayur hill are sure to captivate your senses. The presence of a variety of wild animals in the forests makes this place more adventurous. Visiting hidden waterfalls, trekking around azure lakes guarded by hills, experiencing local tribal culture, bird watching and taking village walks make Ayodhya Hills a treasure trove for photographers and nature-lovers.

During September to March Ayodhya Hills get a chill in the wind and clear skies. Specially, February and March puts a vibrant show of Palash flowers and early October gives a show of Kash phool. But the monsoons shroud the place in endless greenery and the floating dark clouds over the green hills and gushing waterfalls make a spectacle worthy for lifelong travelers.
