Located about 150 km from Ranchi, Netarhat is popularly known as the queen of Chota Nagpur Plateau. Known for spectacular views of sunrises and sunsets, Netarhat is the highest point of the plateau. The drive to Netarhat is itself an amazing experience as one comes across seven different hills. Tourists can also trek through the lush pine forests of Netarhat that offer a tranquil respite from the daily din of city life. While some locals are of the opinion that the British called it near to the heart or natures heart as the place reminded them of their homeland, others say it was named after 'netur haat' meaning a marketplace for bamboo in local language. Netarhat is home to a number of primitive tribes who, for generations, have been residents here.
