Jatinga Hill Station

Jatinga Hill Station

Jatinga Hill Station, Jatinga Hill Station tours, Jatinga Hill Station travel, travel to Jatinga Hill StationJatinga is situated 9 kms from Haflong town, the District Head Quarter of North Cachar Hills. Jatinga is famous for bird mystery. Jatinga Hill Station roofed with Blue Vandas Orchids, Jatinga is famed in local folklore as the place where birds commit mass suicide. The migratory birds come during the month of August to November and it becomes the ornithologist's attraction. From the elevated watch tower one can see them yielding to their death wish and their little plumage falling down.

The more brutal truth is that on certain foggy, moonless nights in autumn, local migrant birds can become disorientated while flying up the valley over the saddle of the hill and are attracted with lights by local people, who clobber them to death with bamboo poles and eat them.

There is a bird watching centre in Jatinga, where one may be capable to stay if one can get authorization from the district forestry office in Haflong. Buses to Silchar pass through, but it may be easier to build a day-trip from Haflong by auto-rickshaw.
