1. McCluskieganj, Jharkhand - 92 Km from Ranchi

McCluskieganj is a town in Jharkhand State, India, about 40 miles northwest of the capital, Ranchi. The town used to have a significant Anglo-Indian community at one time but this has declined considerably. It was founded by the Colonisation Society of India in 1933 as a homeland, or "Mooluk", for Anglo-Indians and was home to 400 Anglo-Indian families within ten years.[1] In 1932 Ernest Timothy McCluskie, the founder of the town, sent circulars to nearly 200,000 Anglo-Indians in India inviting them to settle there.[2] Of the nearly 300 original settlers, only 20 families remain, as most of the Anglo-Indian community left after World War II. The town has lush green surroundings, dirt tracks and fresh air to breathe. Today, most of the old mansions have been converted to guest houses for tourists. Duga dugi River and Jagriti Vihar are some of the places to visit. A unique cluster of a temple, a mosque and a gurudwara draws visitors from far off places. The pleasant weather, the untainted nature and the flavour of the colonial past – it is a different experience at McCluskieganj. After the departure of Anglo Indian and British from McCluskieganj during the 1950′s, the township started loosing its charm and in the next five decades, with no further developments.Travellers visit McCluskiegunj to spend a peaceful weekend in a quiet colonial village. You would find some elegant British bungalows like Gordon Sahib’s bungalow, few churches and a very interesting monument in the nearby Duli village where a temple, a Gurudwara and a mosque is built side by side. McCluskiegunj is a typically hilly region within the Chota Nagpur Plateau with a beautiful natural landscape dotted with hills, rivers, jungles and villages. Another popular local spot is the Jagriti Vihar built by the Swedish Government for people interested in nature study. This little colonial township is surrounded by forests and hills on all sides. The Dugadugi River just 4 kms away is a popular local attraction here. Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand is only a 3 hours drive from McCluskiegunj. You can keep sightseeing in and around Ranchi like Tagore Hills, Rock garden, Kanke Dam and markets of Ranchi in your itinerary too. If you have a day in hand, you can also stay back at Ranchi and take a day tour to Dassam Falls, Hundru Falls and Jonha Falls. Another interesting place on the outskirts of McCluskieganj is Kothari – a dense patch of jungle with a beautiful landscape littered with hills and streams. You would also find some open-pit coal mines around McCluskieganj.
