Parasnath Hill, about 4481 feet high, is situated along the Grand Trunk road about 200 miles from Calcutta. The Eastern Railway, (Grand Chord Line) runs by Parasnath Hill and there are two Railway stations close by, namely, Parasnath Road and Isri. There is a Rest Bungalow at Dumri about a mile from Isri station.

There are two recognized routes to Parasnath Hill, one is from Isri Bazaar, also known as Nimia Ghat, to the top, which is motorable for a mile, the rest being a climb of five miles. The other route is a six-mile route from Madhuban village on the road to Giridih.
