Soaring at an altitude of a whopping 1442 feet, the Susunia Hill is a famous spot in the Bankura District for indigenous sports like rock climbing and trekking. The entire hill is covered luxuriously with a rich flora of beautiful shrubbery, majestic trees and rare medicinal plants. Part of the eastern ghats, this hillock is popular among novice and expert mountaineers alike. In fact, many renowned and successful mountaineers of the country have started their journey on this very hill. During winters, trekking and camping activities are arranged on the Susunia Hill. Enveloped in the ranges of the eastern ghats and resting amidst the lush greenery, spending a day on this hill is the perfect way to escape the loud and polluted airs of the city.
There also stands an ancient but impeccably carved monolith structure on the Susunia Hill named as the Narasimha Stone. The carvings on the monolith call it the oldest stone. What is interesting about this stone is that a fresh spring water stream shoots right out of it! Lord Narasimha is the reincarnation of the great Lord Vishnu, and hence, these spring waters are considered to be very holy. The Susunia Hill is cradled in the gentle caress of nature which makes it an ideal destination to beat the summer heat, blow off some steam after a long week and completely relax your mind and body.
