This app works good for looking up any location on the globe with normal and satellite views. Navigation system also works good.

(2) HERE Maps: Although there are a number of offline maps available in the Play Store, this  is the best app which also works offline. You can either use it online or it also offers you to download the whole map of a particular country or its separate territories. The only drawback is that, downloading offline map makes the app bulky occupying more memory.

Top 4 waterfalls of Jharkhand- Hundru, Dassam, Hirni and Jonha

When the word ‘Jharkhand’ comes in our mind, we think forest, greenery, hills, valley, rivers etc. Jharkhand is such a state in our country which is very rich in mines and minerals, flora and fauna, but unfortunately, due to whatever reason, tourism has not sprouted here like other Indian states. This is still a tourist deficient region but in no way it ever means that it has not the capability to attract the mass.
