Adding to the ambience of the place is the poignant love story of Magnolia, a young British girl who fell desperately in love with a tribal shepherd boy. A granite plaque narrates how Magnolia's love for the poor shepherd drew the ridicule of the girl's English community. Realising that her love would remain unfulfilled she chose to end her life by diving into the alley along with her horse. Magnolia Point is located around 10 KM from the town's main bus stand.
Ideal for picnics, fishing and bird watching is the Netarhat Dam, located 2 KM from the bus stand. The dam has been providing water supply to the region since the time of the British Raj.
