Set in the picturesque Chhotanagpur Plateau, Jharkhand carved out of Bihar on 15 November, 2000. It shares its boundary with Bihar in the North, Chhattisgarh in the West, Orissa in the South and West Bengal in the East.
As the name implies, Jharkhand, a 'piece of land of thickets and bushes', coloures the canvas of the state into some magical shades of green. Be it the greenery of the dense forest or the murmuring of the gushing wild waterfalls or the lush green rolling hills, Jharkhand is synonymous with the natural beauty in every aspect of its character.
The colour of nature has touched the lives of the tribes too. The fervour and vibrancy of their lifestyle exhibits from the exuberance of tribal festivals. Thousands of people from the tribes including Santhal, Bedia or Kond in winter gather to dance chhau while humans taking on the masks of gods and goddesses. This lively celebration brings the supernatural tales from ancient texts alive.
State and Central governments have come up with a number of tour packages to explore the untouched beauty of the serene forest, rich wildlife and mind blowing waterfalls.
