The Journey to the Tribal HeartLand - BastarSaturday, July 04, 2009
If you missed the introduction to the land of surprises, you can read it here. :) Else enjoy the ride!
It is 4 in the evening and now you are at Jagdalpur. A sign board saying “please alight here for Chitrakote falls and Tirathgarh falls” would welcome you in the charming little station of Jagdalpur, the district headquarters of Bastar. The first thing that hits you once out of the station is the old world charm of the town. Living in Bangalore, the place comes as a welcome change from the buzzing city life. Horse carts, jeeps and rickshaws who would ask as low as Rs.5 for 2 kms! (Let's forget the humanitarian aspect of it for now.)
It's 5.30 PM and we are all settled in our room for today. Let's call it a day now! I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did. Come tomorrow, we shall take a tour of the magnificent Chitrakote falls and more. :)
