Jharkhand Tourism Development Corporation (JTDC) has arranged for the first time low-cost, Swiss-style dormitory tents for anyone up for a thrilling excursion during Sharad Utsav, an annual carnival that began on October 1 and will continue through winter till February 2019.
JTDC general manager Rajeev Ranjan said that this is the second edition of Netarhat tourism festival. Each of the dorm tents can accommodate 15 persons.
While a large group of 15 adventure-seekers can plan their stay at the dormitory, smaller groups or even individuals can book a tent bed provided they are willing to share accommodation.
JTDC official said that they had received an overwhelming response during the maiden edition of Sharad Utsav. They are sanguine the dorm tent will attract more visitors this time.
Among other perks of the carnival are chances to taste local cuisine and enjoy performances by tribal artistes on a wintry evening around a bonfire.
The organisers have lined up a host of sporting and adventure events such as bicycle tours, trekking, zip lining, rock climbing, boating, kayaking, water skiing and water zorbing.
