Saranda Forest 
The Saranda forest is one of the magnificent aspects of nature. It is located in the West Singhbhum District, 60 KMS from Jamshedpur. One is spellbound by its majesty, captivating charm, and splendor. Perhaps the contours of its 700 hills should have been more generously praised by nature. The observers taking in the scene from one of the many hills' peaks will undoubtedly agree. The scenery offers a stunning vista of hills upon hills with valleys that are heavily forested and meandering living streams. The foggy winter mornings, a slight nip in the air, and the moving clouds add to the scenic charm of the forest. Winter sprinkles its magic mist throughout the mountainscape, making it look more charming.

Right from mammals to birds and reptiles, Saranda is a golden treasure of wildlife. However, its majestic elephants are known all over the world, and the magical sunrise and sunset of Kiriburu in the hills of Saranda is a spectacular sight. Having the chance to travel to this kingdom of Sal trees with its natural wealth and diverse wildlife will be one of life's most memorable experiences.

Parasnath Hills
