Mountains and Peaks in Chhattisgarh

The Mountains and Peaks in Chhattisgarh, are like most other tourist attractions in the state.

So, Dantewada is a long chain of forested hills with dense green jaal and teak forests.

A visit to Chhattisgarh consists of a trip to the mountains and peaks of Chhattisgarh. 

 Among the mountains and peaks of Chhattisgarh, Baila Deela, and Dantevada stand out.

Kailash Nagar, Dantewada; Akash Nagar, Dantewada; Mount Gadia, Kanker. 

 Chhattisgarh’s Baila Deela mountain range is world-renowned for its huge iron ore deposits of excellent quality.

In this range are several mountains and peaks of Chhattisgarh which in many places look like bull humps.

It was named “Baila Dila” which means “bull’s hump” in the local dialect.

Chhattisgarh’s Mount Ghadiya rose to prominence in the  Kandra dynasty when the Kandra ruler Dharma Dev conquered the Kanker region.

Dharma Dev declared Mount Gadhiya, the natural form of the fort, as his capital.

At the top of Mount Gadia, there is a water tank that is filled with water all year round.

Also among Chhattisgarh’s mountains and peaks, the hilltop settlements of Aakash Nagar and Kailash Nagar are worth visiting.
