Kankrajhor



Kankrajhor is a trekking wonderland in the tropical, hilly forestlands of Midnapore. It comprises 9,000 hectares of hardwood trees including kusum, shaal, segun or teak, mahua and akashmani. Cashewnut, coffee and oranges are cultivated at Kankrajhor.

The Dolma Hills of Kankrajhor are frequented by animals from Bihar, including tigers, leopards and elephants. Bears and wild boars regular stray to the hills in search of mahua tree sap. The sap is a potent intoxicant in the region and is used to make country liquor.

The rhythmic beats of the Adivasi drums make the nights here vibrant. This sound and the remote atmosphere add real enchantment and mystery to the night.
