With this photograph I am starting a new series on Mathaburu [buru = pahar, a hill], Purulia, West Bengal.
Mathaburu is a forest range and a continuation of Ayodhya Hills, 19 KM away from Barabhum. You can reach Barabhum any morning. Just board Chakradharpur Ardra First Passenger at 22:35 from Howrah Station. Surely you will reach Barabhum [23° 2' 0" N, 86° 22' 0" E] by 08.00 next morning. This is the entry point to Balarampur Village.
Take a jeep to reach Matha range, go to the Ranger and ask for a shelter. You may stay at the forest bungalow if you have already booked it from Purulia. Otherwise, you may request him for that. Jago have constructed 3/4 rooms for tourists and you may hire them if these are vacant.
But to enjoy Matha, take tents, cooking materials and waterbottles to enjoy your stay at Matha.
In next few days we will be at and around Mathaburu. Stay with me.
