#1: Dam - - !!

(visited by Stanley Howe)

01-Mar-2006 -- During the morning of the day we were due to fly out of Khajuraho to Delhi, to kill time we decided to try our luck with this confluence using our assigned Traveller minibus.

The road north to Rajnagar and a wee way beyond was excellent hardtop. Taking a left turn at close to 25N we proceeded along a deteriorating track that took us past a 'gulag' type compound to a most remarkable construction site. It was like a scene from 'How the Pyramids were Built' or Breughel's 'Tower of Babel'. Myriads of Harijan workers were crawling on and around massive pylons being built for a dam on a tributary of the River Ken.

Unfortunately, timing and road condition ruled out our further exploration beyond here (24:56N+79:57E), but the dam and its access road when complete will undoubtedy make this confluence an easier target.
