Travel Diary | Khutaghat Dam – Natural Beauty of Chhattisgarh

Hi all, I’m Sorry I didn’t do any post in last 48 hours(or maybe 72 hours now  😛 ). Actually I went on a small trip to other city. The place is called Khutaghat Dam. It’s situated next to Ratanpur temple (Mahamaya Devi Mandir, Bilaspur) and it’s around 200 Kms from my place. Khutaghat Dam is a verrryyyy beautiful picnic spot. I couldn’t stay there for long because we had to pick my dad from station, we stayed there for a while, saw some fishes and crocodile, They were far away tho.
Many people were doing picnic over there, cooking food and playing games in the garden which is in other side of the Dam. If you live around Bilaspur you should visit this place during winters, best time for picnic. It’s a very calm place,  I’ve seen paan shop and a restaurant nearby, didn’t get a chance to try on the food.  I love my state for it’s greenery. I find my peace in these jungles and lakes. I can stay there forever, away from city life ♥
Here are some pictures I clicked on there. It was difficult to see what I was clicking because of sunlight, I tried my best to click good quality pictures with my not so good quality phone camera, Karbonn Sparkle V. All of these pictures are click without flash or touch focus. Below are the pictures of natural beauty of Chhattisgarh.
You can see the island like thing in the middle of the Lake. It’s possible to get to there with boats available on the shores. Picnic in middle of the lake, so exciting! I’m Sorry for the picture quality, I don’t have DSLR.
Here are some more pictures I clicked on the way to bilaspur, there are so many lakes I couldn’t even count them!
I took these photos while sitting in backseat of my car.  Too lazy to go out.  😀
Were you able to spot the temple in the picture above? No? Just look at the picture again, you will notice a small hill-like thing behind the trees, look at the top of it there you will see a white coloured walls, that’s the temple of Lord Shiva. It’s not easy to go there, you can’t Take your vehicle above, you just have to climb to reach . I hope I get a chance to visit that temple! It’s on road which goes to bilaspur.
