Road towards McCluskieganj

At Bijupara, we took a right turn. Before reaching McCluskieganj, we stopped at a place to take a left diversion towards Nakta hills. This particular point offered very scenic vistas.

The road for Nakta hills went through a Sal forest.

After driving for a little more than 5 kms, we reached the base of the hill, which is also known as McCluskie’s nose due to the peculiar shape of the protruding hillock.

A close-up

This place, and the next part of the journey towards McCluskieganj, proclaimed the presence of spring. This riot of colours is bound to touch every earthly mortal. Nature has been generous enough to sprinkle colours everywhere.
