Jakrem is situated in the West Garo Hills district of Meghalaya and is also known as the 'New Jerusalem'. It is an ecological pilgrimage site that has many churches, gompas (monasteries) and sacred groves. There are several Buddhist monasteries like the Ananda Kuti Vihar Gompa, Tharpa Choling Gompa, Nita Gompa etc. in the area.
It is an extremely beautiful place that is surrounded by hills on all sides and has a spring that flows throughout the year. There are also several species of trees like the leopard wood, rosewood, Chinese fan palm etc. found here which are used for making furniture and houses.
Some of the animals that you can spot in this park are the barking deer, wild boar, leopard and black partridge.
The best time to visit Jakrem is between October and February when you can spot several bird species in one day. You may need to carry your own binoculars with you since none are available on the site. It is also a good idea to hire a local guide who can show you around the park and tell you about its history, culture and wildlife.
