Not many people are aware that "The Grand Canyon" exists in India as well.
Located on the bank of river Penner, in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh, "Gandikota" is our very own Grand Canyon that has not been a famous destination for several years.
Hence, we were determined to visit this place and everything set for a ride to this gorgeous "gorge".
My friend Ashish and I started to this place around 6 am from Bangalore. Gandikota is about 320 km from Bangalore.
As we had to take the NH 44, we thought of stopping by at Lepakshi, a small town on the way(120km from Bangalore) which has its own cultural and archaeological significance.
The famous structures that were constructed in Lepakshi was during the reign of Vijayanagara Kings.
It is very famous for the monolithic sculpture of Nandi that is situated in the main road.
