How I reach Khandoli Dam and Park – My holiday story
Giridih station to Khandoli dam distance is 10 Kilometer away it takes 20 to 30 minutes by car. On our Madhupu Deoghar tour, we went to the Khandoli dam and Usri falls on the second day. In the morning, we took the Giridih passenger train from Madhupur railway station at 8 am. We reach Giridih within 9 am.
After that, we book a Toto for the Khandoli dam and park. The toto fair is 300 rupees. It was a 45-minute journey to reach Khandoli dam. We returned in the same way; the way is beautiful with full of natural views. In Khandoli we spend 1 hour.
We saw the Khandoli Dam, park, Khandoli hill, and watchtower, and Khandoli village.
The park is well decorated, and many animals are there. Khandoli is an excellent spot for a picnic. I saw many people having a picnic at that time. After spending a quality and memorable time, we came back to the Giridih railway station by the same Toto car. From here, we book another auto for Usri falls.
