The trip to the cricket stadium had left us longing for more. It is an adrenaline rush that only we can understand. We had been hoping to get by any of the water sports adventurous activities near the Ranchi state and it seems like our prayers had been answered. Located 34 kilometers away from the city is the Jonha Fall Jharkhand, which was known for some of such activities apart from being a favorite picnic spot for the locals and the tourists. The fall was fed by the Kanchi River and was located in the Ranchi- Purulia Highway. We travelled the distance in our car while discussing the highlights of our fast concluding trip and were already feeling the brunt of the work that would be forced our way once we will be back home.
But there was still some time and there was no point spoiling our time pondering over all that now; we should concentrate on making the most of our trip here. This fall incidentally was also called Gautama Dhara and there was also a Gautama Buddha shrine nearby in a tourist lodge where people could choose to spend the night if they wished to stay here in this picturesque locale for more than just a day. There was natural beauty everywhere- in the flora and fauna of the region and in the free flowing white waters of the fall where you could take baths too. We indulged in rafting nearby and went down the 500 steps to the falls to bathe in the chilly waters. It was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had changed and we were totally spent as well, yet we had the energy to follow one of the local there to trek in the nearby forests to maximize our experience here in this enchanting place. There was not going to be another memorable day like this for quite some time, I prophesied.
But there was still another attraction left for us in Jharkhand after the Jonha Falls, Jharkhand and that was the Nakshatra Van, Jharkhand where we would go to the next day.
