Unravelled Travel Stories : Odisha Canyon Lake!!

It’s another happy weekend and I’m precisely halted myself to share this week’s picturesque adventure with you all. After almost 3-4 months I prompted myself to peep outside my cosy compartment😂! Finally, fetched a ray of positivity from the intense deep dark corner. As all my blogs somehow provoke me to stay connected with my positive self, this too will deliver that glimpse of real pleasure and satisfaction!

From the very beginning, I yearned for Nature and truly feel that nothing can soothe us better than a wild breeze, a beautiful rainbow, the aroma of drizzled soil or just the noise of crickets at dusk. There is something marvellous in all things of nature. As a parent, If you wish your children to think deep thoughts, to know the holiest emotions, take them to the woods and hills, and give them the freedom of the meadows, the hills purify those who walk upon them. The same I did to my small one and I can sense the transformation.



A beautiful Scenic Paradise, just 46 minutes ( 38.7 Km) from Bhubaneswar. As we all were attempting to take this COVID19 isolation very seriously still a traveller like me never settle back for more time without a quick glance of nature☺! So, we chose to go for a place with less crowd (almost no mass), near to our habitat and took all the essential measures to stay safe.


NIJIGARH is basically a mining spot. Stone Mining has created beautiful scenic carvings on the rock which replicates a canyon. Due to rain the spot gets filled up and creates an artificial lake with bluish water which promotes the glamour of the panorama. People will certainly admire it as a scenic spot for Photoshoots.


Travel has encouraged us to understand the meaning of life and it has helped us become better people. Each time we travel, we see the world with new perspective spective. Throughout our lives, people have thought that because we keep travelling and searching for new things to do, we are not focused. They have often thought we are flaky or unfocused. But travel helped us find our purpose and put the focus on our lives. The more we got lost in our travels, the richer our lives became.

  • Travel opens our minds and heart, it also makes us better people.
  • We become educated in diverse cultures and ways of life.
  • We learn about how our lives are intertwined and how we can impact one another.
  • Travel allows us to discover, interesting regional or a newfound favourite dish.
  • We can experience what it’s like to communicate solely through gestures when we don’t know how to speak a language.



I hope that this travel article makes you want to travel more. As you travel, you realize that the world is a much better place than what you can see on TV when watching the news.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”

Mark Twain

  • What a gorgeous place, and such interesting wildlife! I definitely need to get out and see more of the world.

    • Thanks for the love dear! It's indeed a beautiful place and soul-soother in this ongoing tragic scenario 😊❤

  • This looks like an amazing place! The wildlife looks incredible! Covid has definitely made me more appreciative of being able to travel, I love getting out and exploring! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Thank you so much Charley, for your kind words! Such a long duration of isolation made every traveller more anxious to go out and explore😄

  • Those are some amazingly beautiful pictures. I wish I could take pictures like that. What made the river look so green?

    • I also wondered about the same thing that why the water is so green, but I could only judge out that it's a stone quarry and it's a man-made Lake formed out of stone mining. So maybe there must have been some kind of rock emitting some chemical substance into the water which in turn makes the water looks green, it's just a wild guess. Will surely get back to you if ever I get some details.😊 thanks for visiting.
