Excellent weekend getaway for a family group. Travel in groups so that spending evenings at place of stay is more fun.
Oct 2021
Netarhat drive is very enjoyable with good stop spots (small waterfalls) on the ghats before Netarhat. Book in advance for place of stay as the place gets crowded over weekends and there are not many hotels in Netarat. A very good place to stay is the Lake View Resort, which also has pretty decent food and service of the staff is very good. Plan to reach by mid day and visit the Netarhat Boarding School, Chalet House and Upper Ghagri Falls and reach the Sunset point before sunset. Traffic at sunset point can get chaotic due to lack of adequate parking space, specially on holidays/weekends, hence plan to reach with time to park lest you miss the sunset. There is nothing to do post sunset and no liquor is available anywhere in Netarhat, carry your own liquor for the night. Next day see the sunrise at the Koel view point, which has a stall serving very good tea and head out to Lodh falls which is about 60 kms from Netarhat. If you check out of the hotel then you need not come back to Netargat from Lodh falls.Ground conditions were pretty wet when we visited and hence we did not go to the lower Ghagri falls as the approach road is a mud track and vehicles can get stuck. A couple of things that need to be planned well is meals and snacks as Netarhat or adjoining places do not have a very many options where you can grab meals. One needs to be extra careful while driving on the Ghats near Netarhat as the truck drivers of the trucks carrying bauxite ore are pretty reckless and rash.

A quite place to unwind.
Jan 2020
Quite a few places have come up for staying in Netarhat. from privately run Home stay, guest house to Gov run Prabhat Viharwhich is addina deluxe section. Stayed at the oldest place Dak Banglow, Very relaxing stay with homely type food, lots of open space to laze under the sun.
The Hill town has got a makeover for tourism and looks at par with some of the best hill towns. Apart from the mentioned tourist spots, a walk in the town is very satisfying. The school is worth mentioning, with numerous play fields may be more than 10.
Try fresh milk from the diary and desi chicken.
BSNL and Jio connects only.for mobile call and net.
Enjoy the sound of silence, it is worth visit.

Serene and beautiful place in Jharkhand. Could become hottest destination if Government take care of it.
Nov 2019
Netarhat is undoubtedly best place in Jharkhand to visit. Located in Lathehar district its 4 hour journey from Ranchi airport or station. Taxi is available from station or airport. Direct buses are very few one has to go to lohardaga and from there to Netarhat but best way to go is by taxi as you can also visit Palamu wild life sanctuary which is around 2 hr from Netarhat. As one reaches to Netarhat they will find them surrounded by tall pine tree and lush green jungle. its famous for its sunset and sunrise. I highly recommend this as it will be life time experience. This place could become hottest destination among tourists but lack of government effort and fear of naxalites has made this place far from reach of tourist, roads are not proper and not safe. not will connected by major city, lack of resort and hotels, underdeveloped attractions. Its shame to see such a place getting ruined due to government apathy. but if you are nature lover please visit it once.

Pristine nature

Netarhat is a Small Hill station. Better to visit in the month of November. The sunrise view from Probhat Bihar hotel and sunset at Magnolia View point is excellent.

Perfect family getway

We started our journey from Ranchi with a stay over at Betla National Park , Palamu and then to Netarhat. The drive was scenic with Koel river providing additional beauty at every turn. The ascend towards Netarhat deserves a special mention . We witnessed the splendid sunset and then made our way towards the Revenue Guest House which was very nice. The sunrise view from the rooms are other worldly. The breakfast was sumptuous and the rooms well appointed.

Truly the Queen of Chhota Nagpur plateau.

One of the best sunrises and sunsets on earth. The Koyel view point is awesome with pine forest. You can spend two days in seclusion. Better if you visit Maromar , just 70 km away from Netarhat and spend one night at the forest rest house there.

Being originally from Ranchi and settled in Delhi, I decided to celebrate my Son's 1st bday in the midst of Nature with close family group of 15 people. This was planned so that my family and especially my kid would enjoy to the fullest. The road was awesome other than some rough patches in the starting of the journey.
The 1 hr drive to the valley was superb with some small beautiful water calls in between.We booked The Govt Dak Bunglow which turned out to be a superb decision. The place was awesome and was over looking dense forest. The staffs and food was awesome. But do not expect 5 star hotel comfort or services.

The weather and the ambience was so serene there. Sunset point, Koel View points were superb.

I had been to many hill station but the jungle was so pure and dense. And unlike many hill station, there was no plastic or bottles thrown on the roads or jungle. This place should remain as it is.

Netarhat, the Queen of chota nagpur, is an excellent Hill Station of Jharkhand situated on chota nagpur hills. The road journey from Ranchi to Netarhat is magnificent. Its a 4 hours journey. Staying at Netarhat is must to watch sun rise and sun set and for peaceful stay.

Amazing and wonderful place less discovered
Dec 2016 • Friends
Netarhat is around 160 kms from Ranchi. Had a bike trip from Ranchi to Netarhat. It was raining and we got all wet but it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Netarhat was above clouds that time. It was such a wonderful place. We stayed in JTDC hotel since only that hotel is a bit safer than the other local hotels. It is preferable to book in advance since this place is not so safe. Take some supplies with you and do not expect good food from there.

There are few places to visit here including the much famous university, sunrise point, falls etc.

Overall, it was a beautiful experience for us.
