How to go: Way 1: You can reach through Manoharpur, Jharkhand. From there you hire car to visit SARANDA range. To reach Manoharpour there is no direct train from Howrah. So you have to come to Kharagpur and get train from Hijli. PURI YNRK SPL (03:10 am)

Way 2: Another route is Howrah Barbil route. You can get train from Howah HWH BBN SF SPL (6:20 am). It takes around 6 and half hours to reach Barbil. From Barbil it is easy to get access the whole Saranda and other visiting places.

More Information:

Saranda is all about nature along with Kiriburu Meghatiburu hill range. It is said to be Country of 700 hills. Best time to go there in February to April to see ultimate nature. On a sunny afternoon you will feel like you reach to a foreign country. The roadside view, tree pattern, weather, everything will make you feel fresh. You will see range of hills near and far, here and there. Somewhere you will find a small church on a hill top, or some guest house. Even though in Saranda you will not get numerous guesthouse here and there, I will share accommodation details later.



Activity

In Saranda people go for a sudden change. As there is no specific visiting spot, you will roam through out the day in Saranda forest and hill range. You can spend time by giving halt here and there and road around. You must go to Meghatiburu sunset point to experience amazing sunset. Except that you can take a look of Iron ore mines area. You can also visit waterfalls like Jhikra or Pachouri. In winter you can do bonfire or bar-b-q if you wish to. I guess that's all. Except that if you wish to explore more you have to interact with village people.



Food

Frankly once you leave the city you hardly find any restaurant or food shop. So plan accordingly. Either you carry food or buy it from Manoharpur or Barbil itself. In Morning in Manoharpur you will find nice Litti Chokha or sweets or samosa etc. Better you plan in such a way so that you don't need to miss lunch from your accommodation. In Meghatiburu sunset point area you will find good sweet shop or market area, you can buy stuff from there. You can also manage lunch from SAIL canteen if you go on time. It is good and recommended.



Accommodation

If you have any contact from SAIL employee you don't need to worry about you stay. Unless you have to arrange and pre book private holiday home. In Kiriburu hill top it is said you will get few private accommodations. Except that Saranda Safari Resort is there near Barbil. Even though the environment is too good but maintenance is worst. One of the good recommended stays is Santoor guest house which is very near by Manoharpur rail station. A bit costly but their maintenance and food is really good. You can search in google and see the environment. You can contact Mr. S Bhattacharya 8969560018 to book Santoor. Accommodation and location wise this is the best but the only issue is distance between your location and Saranda forest. It is around 61 km. But if you manage your itinerary you will not be harassed. Choice is yours.
