The hight of the Panchkot hill (also called Panchet hill) is around 2000 feet. The Panchet hill is dotted with tropical trees and looks lash green in rainy season. Below the hill flows the Damodar River. Natural splendor of woods and hills with fresh air makes the place an ideal weekend destination. Walk along the forest of Sal (Shorea robusta), Tamal, Sonajhuri (Acacia auriculiformis), Palas(Butea monosperma) – the aroma of the flowers and leaves will refresh you.
