KANKRAJHOR HOMESTAY, AN UNFORGETTABLE DELIGHT FOR NATURE LOVERS
Kankrajhor, a combination of hills and verdant green dense forest has become very popular to the tourists who look for solitude in the midst of nature. The place offers some rare experience of walking through the wild paths amidst the forests of Shaal, Segun, Kusum, Mahua, Cashew nuts and akashmoni. The homestay provides a perfect bliss, a home away from home feeling whereby you wake up with the chirping of the birds, take refreshing cool air and your eyes get soothed at the lush green surrounding in every direction. However, a full moon night in the homestay in winter or spring really becomes memorable with the tribal dance performance and the mesmerizing beats of the madal resonating in the hills around.
