Day 1 continued – Chaibasa
After checking in the hotel, we went out for visiting the local places of interest. The first one is the falls at Lupungutu
, where ground water comes out below Arjun (Terminalia arjuna
) trees. Although it is known as a natural spring, there is no apparent source of this perennial flow of water. The locals believe that the water has medicinal value, and they collect it every day for consumption, particularly as a cure for diabetes. Located among the tribal area, and being surrounded by a lot of trees, it serves as a picnic spot also. People were washing clothes and bathing in this water. However, as it was winter, the water was just trickling below the trees. Nonetheless, it was an interesting natural wonder.
Our next stop was the dam over the river Roro

Next we visited GEL church
, which was established in 1845.

After having lunch at a restaurant, we went to Jubilee lake.
