Decent day outing from Purulia
Sep 2021 • Family
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.

Nestled in the silence of nature.

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.

Nice place
Jan 2021
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.

Ayodhya Hills - February 2020
Feb 2020
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.

Good if you are around
Sep 2019
Ajodhya Hill and forest Reserve Area is in Purulia Distt of West Bengal. It has many routes to go - From South- West via Pakhi Hill or directly from West via Baghmundi; from North via Murguma Dam, the lonely narrow route or via Tamna from East. In the West Side is are Lower Purulia Pumped Storage Project or lower dam and picturesque Upper Dam. There are a few ordinary hotels and one 4 * Resort, if you want to stay. If you want to return the same day, carry your Lunch and snacks. There are very very few places where you can buy your meal. Place is under-developed and likely to attract more tourists in near future from nearby places.
