They say a little bit of history and loads of scenic beauty is what sums up Ghatshila for most tourists. Located on the banks of the Subarnarekha River, Ghatshila is nestled amidst the rocky flanks of an undulating forest area, hills and the river. The place offers a pleasant location for a brief weekend trip and has been the popular haunt for a change of climate and place. Geographically placed between two hills and the Subarnarekha River flowing through it, Ghatshila provides a spectacular birds-eye-view of the entire area. From the tops of these hills one can trace the river making its way through the rocks and boulders that are found in this region, painting a breathtaking landscape.

 Ghatshila has been the headquarters of the erstwhile Raja of Dhalbhum whose ancestors hailed from the royal house of Cuttack in Orissa. Now it is part of the state of Jharkhand in the East Singhbhum district. Ghatshila is located deep within the tribal areas of Jharkhand as well as West Bengal. True, that over the years Ghatshila has transformed itself into this perfect holiday destination. However, one can still witness the simple village life, the distinctive smell of the smoke belching out of the chulhas and the heavy influence of tribal forms in their art and culture.

Ghatshila boasts of a large tribal population and it is worth watching the kind of metamorphoses that the mainstream has undergone so that there is a harmonious relationship between all. Despite the industrialization that had been witnessed around it over the years, Jamshedpur being a glaring example of that, one is taken by surprise with the tranquility and peace that Ghatshila offers.

Summers are quite hot and dry but winters are quite chilly. However, the “salubrious” climate is what appeals to visitors, especially those who frequent from nearby West Bengal and even Orissa. With the steady flow of travelers, hotels and restaurants have cropped up to cater to them. Accommodation is available throughout the year.
