3rd day (27.10.2010 Wednesday) left Jabalpur and proceeds to Amarkantak via GHUGHWA national fossils park.


Actually the 3rd day journey is its self a Legendry trips for the all trekkers, because of its distance and our mostly time-pass through wayside carom, close-up Antaakhyariee (hosted by Sushma singh’& Kavya Bhatt, Mumbai) & boring Bhaangaraa’s on every two hrs bus journey. About 267km which was too bored to any one who’re inside the bus,while by car trip with Vishalji they also enjoyed a lot but one thing is the seating arrangements which are done by the management was truly innovative. During the bus trip before reached to at GHUGHWA national parks (which were scheduled to be the lunch point) our close-up Antaakhyari programme goes & goes on till we in touch up our night destination sonmura waterfall point at Amarkantak region. This place is the birth place of soon river which one flown-up via Chattisgarh, Bihar & West Bengal at last kissing up to River Ganga then finally at bay of Bengal.
