Day 6

Bodh Gaya to Ranchi (Kanke)

View Road Trip across India on banana1997's travel map.

I start from Bodh Gaya at 10 AM. There must be some special religious occasion here because I see a good gathering of Monks in their maroon color dress and lots of foreigners also on roads and around the temples but I didn't stop for that . I am just a biker rather than a traveler. But I like simple living of village people and peace here.

I reached at Barhi, left NH 2 and start on NH 33 towards Hazaribagh. There some road work going on for widening the Highway up to 4 lanes otherwise its good with some dense forests and beautiful rivers. I stopped 2 times till I reached Ranchi (Kanke). One Dhaba is run by 2 very beautiful sisters along with their old father. It was surprising especially for a guy from Rajasthan. I saw a dream of wife and sister-in-law ( Saali) there.
Special Breakfast Item is Litty-chokha (it’s a Litti- which is ball shape stuff, baked and made of wheat and other food grains, delicious with boiled and meshed potatoes with local spices called “Chokha”). Every body passing by this region should try it. It’s popular in western UP, Bihar and Jharkhand. Cost .05 $ per Litty and usually 2 is enough as breakfast.

I took a short road to reach Kanke via Pithauriya from Ramgarh and the whole road so bad due to work going on it and diversion on every 100 m (i don't know what strategy Highway authority formulate to make a road so that it inherently posses rider's night-mare or may be they literally want to stop the traffic by putting so much hurdle on It. God Bless them.
Must See: - I remember the ghat road between Pithuriya to Kanke and Kanke Dam. It was really beautiful and calm like a virgin, untouched by any kind of urbanization or tourism.
