Panchet dam is on the bank of river Damodar and is located in Jharkhand, but its closeness to the border of West Bengal and Bihar makes it easily accessible from both these states. Tourists can reach this place, by reaching Kumardhubi, which happens to be the closest railway station just 10 km from Panchet dam via the Grand Chord Line.... More

My suggestion is not to visit Garpanchakot-Baranti. the place is nice with scenic beauty but the Local Natives are very hostile , they are very poor , with literally no income, so they always target tourists for money. Starting from cab driver,local shop owner etc etc everyone unnecessarily harasses tourists for money. If you are going by train , auto... More
