Jhurungoo is another village about 5 km away from Khetiyo. The hike here is also mostly uphill and will take about 3-3.5hrs. Jhurungoo is a table top landscape. Its situated at a significant height but is flat as a table. This village is the site for all the local cricket tournaments. The height gives one a great view from Jhurungoo. We can even see as far as the Kalagarh dam which is located atleast 40 km away. The entire national park is visible as well.
The hike to Jhurungoo will pass along the northern edge of the Lohachaur range of the corbett national park. The birding is superb here and one can definitely hope to see our superstar – the Pallasus Fish Eagle.
A ‘5 a side’, 10 over cricket match can also be organized if the guests request for it at an extra cost. When was the last you indulged yourself with a game of village cricket?
The way back would be by road till Luthiya and a downhill hike to Khetiyo.
