Syntheri Rock
Centre Of Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary, Dandeli
This is a volcanic rock standing tall and you have steps to go up and come down. You do have to walk a lot about 450 steps wach time but the surrounding beauty does not let you feel the stress up there. The view of the Dandeli valley and the panoramic view of the Kali River are marvelous. This is also an ideal spot for photography.
Kali River
Dandeli
Also known as the kalinadi, this river flows through the Karwar region of the district of uttara Kannada in Karnataka. This is a very important river as it is the main source of water supply for almost 4 lakh people and also the main source of livelihood for the fishermen around this place. There are a number of dams built here for the purpose of generating hydroelectricty which will in turn provide electricity to the families around this river. The Kali Bridge is built over the river and is a part of the National Highway or the NH 17 which is an important road network too. Adventure sports such as river rafting is very popular over here and the scenic beauty is a delight for photographers and well as nature lovers.
Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary
Opp. Syndicate Bank, Solad Complex, J N.Road, Dandeli, Dandeli, Karnataka, India
This is a premier attraction of Dandeli and is loacted in the Uttara Kannada Region of Karnataka. This is a project which was started together with the Anshi Wildlife Reserve. Because there is an abundance of flora and fauns, this has become heaven for nature and wildlife lovers. This place was once known for wild animals roaming around and then the forest department took the decesion of naming and framing it one of the known wildlife sanctuaries of the country. Wild animals such as gaur, sambhar, leopards, panthers, tigers and lions and very much found over here. This is an open area where animals can live freely and not worry about being hunted. Tourists find immense pleasure in enjoying the wildlife tours under the guidance of experts.
Anshi National Park
Dandeli
Located at a little more than 50 kilometers from the Uttara Kannada District, this was first opened as a Wildlife Sanctuary in May, 1956. Later, a part of this was declared as a National Park and then again later, in January 2007, the status of this was promoted as a Project Tiger Sanctuary. The place is of course rich in both flora and fauna and the main species of flora found here are the lantana, bauhinia, silver oak, bamboo, teak and eucalyptus. The major species of fauna here are the bonnet, Malabar Giant Squirrels, Malabar civets, deer, panglin, sloth bear and bisons. The common leopards, tigers and elephants are also found here. There are a number of birds which come here as migratory birds round the year.


Panaji
This is the capital of the state of Goa and is probably the smallest state capital. Panaji is also the headquarters of the North Goa District and is situated on the banks of the Mandovi River Estuary is the Tiswada Region. The more popular name is Panaji but Panjim is also a commonly used term. This was the name by which the Portuguese used to address this city. When the whole of India got independence, Goa was still under the colonial rule of the Portuguese who freed it a number of years later. The Portuguese effect is what you will get in each and every thing of Goa and Panjim too. The attractions here are the lovely white church, the food that you will get here and of course the different types of building lined on the sides of the narrow streets. These houses are the remains of the various clans who have ruled here including the Latins and the Portuguese. The houses look beautiful and brightly coloured and many of them have simple yet pretty wrought iron balconies too. Many of these are now either resorts for budget concious travellers or restaurants for the ones who love to taste Portuguese and Goan cuisine.
Calangute
The third day started of late, and as it was our last day, we spent the some time in lazing around in the pool. At around 3 we visited Calangute beach where we enjoyed a few water sports (snorkling, parasailing etc). They offer great packages but it is very important to negotiate the prices. I personally would recommend water sports at this beach.
