Visited the Ayodhya Hill & Forest Reserve Area on a road trip from Jamshedpur by self-driven car, it took around 2 and half hours’ drive through reasonably good road barring few kilometers of village roads. The road has multiple bumps, where one needs to be extra careful. During onward journey, we took a wrong turn which led to travel through narrow village roads with couple of unlikeable instances, however villagers were really helpful during such situations. During return, we took the right path with the help of Google map through Baghmundi-Balarampur road, where drive was smooth.

The Hill has pleasant scenic beauty, especially in monsoon , when it was green all around. The hill roads are well maintained, which provided a smooth drive. Though there were directions on the road, however more prominent directions of the attraction spots may be helpful for the first-time tourists. We visited Upper and Lower dam, Bamni Falls, Marble lake and Turga falls. One has to climb down 632 steps (as per security guard) to reach at the bottom of the Bamni falls, however after around 100 odd steps, the steps are not well maintained, moreover it is also tedious to climb down and up. We climbed down up to the level where steps are reasonably maintained and could see the narrow stream of waterfalls. It was nice but tiring climb down and up through green forest. The entry to the falls is allowed till 4.30 pm. The upper and lower dam are situated at roadside and can be reached by vehicles. Marble lake is a small lake surrounded by small hills, the place provides a lovely view. One has to walk down a small distance through rocky path from parking to the lake, small shops / stalls, selling souvenir items, tea & snacks etc., are available at the site. We had seen Turga falls from the roadside and skipped Muruguma dam, basis advice of a fellow traveler. As we night stayed on the hill, hence explored the places at leisurely speed. Overall, a nice time spent amidst the nature.

This was my first trip to Ayodhya Hill area, and I was literally blown away by the natura beauty of the place. Travelling during the Durga Puja, entire area is filled with "Kash Phool", the scenery was green, and the falls were at their best.

We visited the Muruguma Dam, Marble Lake, Lower Dam, Upper Dam, Bamni falls etc. I liked the Marble Lake and Upper Dam the most.

Ajodhya hills are on the eastern fringes of the Chhotanagpur plateau, in the Purulia district of West Bengal. Great visuals and beautiful roads. A tip - fill fuel in your vehicle as there is no petrol pump in ajodhya and its surrounding areas. Lots of trees like sal, segun ,palash, acacia, mahuya etc make the place a must visit for nature lovers.

The main attractions in my opinion were the Turga falls (Bamni falls were closed due to some construction activity), marvel lake and upper dam. Turga falls the descent is for folks who can climb up or down steep rocky stairs only. It is recommended to wear shoes.

An amazingly serene place within the heart of nature. It is a pretty vast area and includes places such as the Mayur Hills, Upper Dam, Lower, Bamni Falls, Thurga Falls and the Thurga Dam. People who want to explore the surrounding area can also visit the Murguma Dam and the associated View Point. It is a large dam nestled amongst the surrounding hills. Really beautiful. Do plan the journey beforehand so that you can cover the maximum places in the most sequential manner.

The area is beautiful. Especially the lower dam. You would mostly need a car. The roads are beautiful. Mainly there are three prominent things to see here. Bamni falls, lower dam and Upper dam. I found the lower dam to be the most beautiful. Bamni falls is also good but the steps are not made properly and it takes time to go down. Upper dam is also very beautiful.

We visited in February, the place was relatively less crowded. You will need a car to travel within the Ayodhya circuit.

Places you must see - Marble Lake, Mayur Pahar, Upper Dam, Lowe Dam, Pardi Lake, Khairabera Lake, Pakhi Pahar, Choradi, Bamni Falls.

Best Place to Stay is Kushal Palli

Weather is hot even in winters. Best Time to visit in my opinion is after Pujas but it will be crowdy. Better to go when there is scattered clouds in the sky.
