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