Called the grand canyon of West Bengal and when you see the photo I shall attach here, you will know why. Still relatively unexplored, which adds to the magnificence and raw aura of this place.

Called the grand Canyon of West Bengal but, to be honest, it is not close to a grand size! Nevertheless, a great place to visit. You can go for a short hike beside the river. Great place for photographers. Worth visiting.
