    "Deomali - Highest Peak Point of Odisha and Duduma Waterfalls - three big waterfalls at one place of Odisha"

    After riding at Khardung La, Marsimik La and some other highest roads and passes of the World, I wanted to explore Odisha.
    I am 48 years old and I ride Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. I am stock sub- broker by profession since last 25 years based at Cuttack, Odisha.

    My last travelogue at BCMTouring was for my solo ride to Ladakh and Zanskar for 19 days ==>
    Dream >> Explore >> Discover .. .. .. .. Ladakh & Zanskar => June 2014



    The "Likes" and appreciation by all Bcmtourians encouraged me to write this second travelogue at http://www.bcmtouring.com

    My Plan to Ride at Deomali.....it was 520 KM from Cuttack.

    Finally, On 6 th December 2014, I rode to Deomali - The Highest Peak of Odisha . It is 5485 feet above sea level.

    On Day one, I rode 561 KM , starting from Cuttack - Khordha- Berhampur - Palasha - Srikakulam - Razar- Salur Ghati - Pottangi - Kundili - Deomali Top . I saw Sunrise near Khordha that day and saw Sunset on Deomali Top.

    I was dreaming to ride to Deomali ,after coming back from Marsimik La, Highest motorable PASS of the World. But I saw a picture of Deomali at a stall of Odisha Tourism in Baliyatra on 13 November, and finally decided and planned to ride at Deomali- Highest peak of Odisha .

    Saw this banner at Odisha Tourism Counter at Balijatra==> DEOMALI.....^highest place of Odisha on 13th November. I told myself that I will ride here soon....

    On day one I started at 5.00 AM from Cuttack and reached Deomali Top at 5.00 PM .

    I also tried HDR photography on this trip.

    Beautiful shots of the landscapes Sajal sir. Sunset one is beyond imagination. :)
    I noticed some dust spots in your 3rd shot. Sensor cleaning time, may be ;)

    wow Deomali...

    In My childhood, in book, i read about this, but never get a chance to visit..

    Few years back i decided to visit those places, but as those areas are highly effected by naxalites, i cancelled my program. Glad you make that...
