Welcome to Gangani, the Grand Canyon Of Bengal.
The journey begins. The convoy lined up at Dhulagarh Toll Plaza
The blooming Kaash on Rivar Kanshabati or kasai just ahead of Midnapur Town.
The stretch of NH 60 running through the forest
The sight of the Canyon with river Shilabati in the background
Fishing on river Shilabati
The beautiful river side.
Again it was abundance of Kaash on the riverbank
The concrete staircase leading to the riverbed
The narrow trails going inside the ravine
Inside the ravines
Top view of the area
The terrain difficult to negotiate but breathtakingly beautiful
Now I stood before the giant paw
Some more photos of the God's own sculpture
Note the intricate textures formed by years of erosion
The approach to the temple like cave of Bakasura. Note the rib-cage like formation which appears like remains of some prehistoric monster.
