India - Bihar & Jharkhand (Chapter)
This is the Bihar & Jharkhand chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
Glistening paddy-fields to the north and wild forested hills to the south provide a striking backdrop to this region. This is also one of the country’s religious melting pots, and getting caught up in the spiritual atmosphere is the real draw for travellers.
