Hiking

A trek to the Gurrasini hill through the forests of Belpahari is a matchless experience, enroute visit the Khandarani lake, famous as a haven for migratory birds and Ketki falls are in its prime during monsoons. What is unique about the Gurrasini hill top is that the edge of the cliff juts out of the hill. Just enough to sit up on or stand for a perfect edgy Instagram shot. Even if you’re a daredevil, be super careful as there’s no support and is a sheer freefall drop. But the view is magnificent. Take your own time in just gazing into the endless forests and hills. Bliss!


Agricultural Activities

Observe and experience the traditional methods of farming with a cattle plough and sowing of paddy. Rural farms in Jhargram are becoming attractive tourist destinations also because more visitors are nostalgic for a "simpler" time. They want to escape the hustle of city life and connect with natural and cultural heritage and enjoy a richer and authentic leisure experience. Here you can learn, connect with meaning, and meet genuine people engaged in a rural/agricultural lifestyle.


Community Services

Tourist may involve themselves in community services like awareness generation on healthcare, career counseling to the students, cleanliness and sanitation issues etc by conducting drives in the village with the help of local Community Based Organizations (CBO'S).

This is an increasingly popular practice among many anglers. It is quite common for fishers with a strong conservation commitment to release fishs that they have caught. Village ponds are ideal place for fishing, they have encouraged community fishing as a common activity among locals. Enjoy the day with Catch and Release fishing.
