Nandan Kanan Zoo Revisit - Orissa Tourism

More than 40 years ego , deep in the jungles of Orissa, a concrete wall,fence started to built up for the most beautiful and the best ecologically balanced zoological park that India has ever seen. Nandan Kanan was created with the wilderness , smuggled by the forest cover in some parts, giving it a unique natural existence. The View of Botanical Garden Lake , resembeles that of Alleppy in Kerala.
The Beauty of the lake is incomparable to any lakes in Asia, though small in size , but the vast landscape with the botanical garden makes it a clean place to sit hours. The team consist of 6 and we all enjoyed Biking , with the long Clean now a days Indian Roads, to the Jungle, to the River, to the zoological park.

We had our time, enjoying the lake water and its scenic view before entering the Nandan Kanan Zoo. The Tickets for the elder ones are Rs 20 and for the Children below 5 years is Rs 5 only. On our way we had our breakfast at Trishulia Chaka ( the Trishulia Square). My favorite Poori and Dum Aalu, Some of us had there IDLY - Wada mix with the Curry.
The Entrance gate of Nandan Kanan zoological Park is the best designed in any of the zoological park exist in India.

Nandan Kanan in Orissa is a must see Zoological and Botanical park in India, with its Lush greenery flora and the enchanting clean water lake. The Lake separates the Zoological park from the Botanical Garden. The Toy train journey also enchants us with its small and yet beutiful surrounding ( Ticket cost Rs 10 per person only).

After the Zoo view , we had our Lunch and rest at the Botanical garden area, before we reach the Barang Station(the Station near Nandan Kaanan). The cool breeze from the vast open greens are pinching our cheeks , while we are amazedily watching the View from the Station top.
On our Way back , We choose the 2nd route as we decided from the satelite maps , with the help of google earth. This route has a riverside road and a fearry pass through the river water to the other side.

Our Bicycles on the Ferry boat, waiting to flow with the heavy winds and water waves, can be seen from the above picture. The Route from Nandan Kanan to the Village in the third phase, was changed and we set out for the khatjodi river walk through. This means we had to cross the waters at its lowest depths, and to trace that we need to be fast , before its get dark. And fortunetely we did it and crossed the river , with the help of the Local grass grager folk, in its 70's age(you can see the person in the image below , with its Grass Pack, over his head)

Finally when we reach this side of the river , we are just so relaxed and thanks all to the successful adventure, on our HERO Ranger, BSA SLR and AVON Cycles. We sat on the sand till 9.30 pm in Night , before hading to our final phase of Journey(Just 1 km from home).

Essence of trust.

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, "Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river." The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand." "What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father. "There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go." In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs... This message is too short..........but carries a lot of Feeling ! Current Mood: Relaxed Current Song: "I can be your Hero baby .."
