One can reach Tighra dam within two hours from Gwalior. The road leading to this mesmerizing place passes through some villages and is in the outskirt of Gwalior. I planned to visit this place with my college buddies. We hired a taxi from Gwalior. The ride on the bumpy road is itself a fun thing. The road conditions are better now.
