Photograph Location
Syntheri Rocks Syntheri Rock : A 300 foot tall monlithic granite monolith located deep within the thick Dandeli Wild Life Santuary, with the river Kaneri gushing ferociously by its side, the syntheri rock makes a splended sight. The effect of erosion is clearly seen on this rock, with hollows all over. Innumerable nooks and crannies are home to thousands of pigeons, along with the hives of rock bees hanging alongside, all of which is clearly visible from the Kali wilderness camp across the river. And all it takes in an hour long jeep ride followed by a short walk through the scenic jungle, to reach this incredibly beautiful work of nature.
Kavala Caves Kavale Caves : About 28Km from Dandeli near Ambika Nagar are located the Kavale Caves, on the ridge of a tall hill amidst a captivating forest backdrop. At the centre of the hall in a huge shivalinga-like formation, more than 1 meter in hight. It is the outcome of the combination of stalactite and stalagmite, which has resulted in an upward growing conical formation of the floor, formed due to the dripping from the roof or from a ferro stalaclite hang resembling icicles.
