Things to see
Jampui Hills is not a typical tourist destination that you will visit for sightseeing. There are hardly any prefixed sightseeing points or standard tourist activities here. The entire area is new to tourism and the concept of a large number of tourists visiting various sightseeing points has not reached this part yet. This can be a big advantage to anyone who wishes to enjoy the essence of a place in a non-touristic way. It is still possible to engage in an easy conversation with some locals, you can walk around the long unwinding roads without being approached by souvenir vendors and enjoy the song of silence over a rising sun without jostling for space with other tourists. The serene surroundings with lush green are a treat for the eyes
