The village of Jatinga is located 80 kilometres from the town of Silchar. This village has gained fame owing to the mention of birds committing suicide according to a folklore. Scientific studies have proved that the birds don’t actually commit suicide but are killed.
On moonless nights in the month of autumn, birds are said become disorientated during their flight over the valley. The locals attract these birds with lights and kill them with bamboo poles and eat them. Nonetheless, Jatinga serves as a huge crowd puller and is considered to be one of the most popular hill stations in Assam.
Jatinga is also a pristine hill station where you can easily get covered by Mother Nature. There is greenery all around, and the hills and the clear mountain streams make a perfect setting for a great holiday. You can also shop for local arts and artefacts during your trip to this place.
