             Hill Station of Odisha - Deomali - The mountains of the Gods #Koraput #Odisha #Deomali #HillStation 8

      Deomali – The highest & largest mountain peak of Odisha , located in the Pottangi Block of Koraput District in the State of Odisha, At approx 1672 metres above sea level, Deomali is the highest peak in Odisha as well as of the Eastern Ghats of India.

Deomali the highest mountain peak of odisha at an altitude of 5400feets , sadly most of people are ignorant to these mountains . The golden hour of sunlight was falling upon us as we rode through the lonely roads. Partha had a grin on his face like a baby, maybe I was smiling like an idiot too, blames it on deomali; it’s a paradise in odisha for nature lovers.

 

Hill Station of Odisha - Deomali - The mountains of the Gods #Koraput #Odisha #Deomali #HillStation 6We almost clicked every landscape while making our way up. We soon reached the end of the roads. Our bikes had been faithful with us this long to carry us this far, we parked them near the view point and patted the seat. There was a family outing there, feasting upon Kheer served in the plastic glass. They were about to leave after the dessert. An old shepherd came up to us, asking where we came from and all details. Partha asked me to give a small amount of money; obviously we were a little concerned with the Maoist thing.

The road had messages of the Maoist painted in white and the last thing we would want is to upset the local that came up to us. We were in a jinx, it was getting dark, the trek from there would take about an hour, and no man was about to be seen for at least about 10kms. We already had a failed plan of going inside the Nageswar caves in the morning and coming back from the tourist view point in Deomali was bad for our male ego , further the question was , 6yrs of dreams , 6months of planning and 6hours of waiting to climb the mountains , can it be jeopardized with the fear of the dark and Maoist ??

The answer was no and we decided to continue with the stupidity and adventure. We reached the last view point , the view point now in ruins, with scribbled names of couples all over it , packets of cigarettes , chips , water pouch was lying alone . We rested there for some time, the moon was already up, and the twilights were playing with colors over the Blue Mountains far away. After resting for some time, we decided to move further till there is complete darkness. We were about 200mts away from the tip of the mountain when we felt it was no longer safe to continue further due to the uneven rocky slippery surface.

Darkness was the time for mountain animals, most importantly I was afraid of stepping into a snake rather than meeting a Maoist. We sat there for some time to enjoy the pure silence that the mountains offered. It’s not every day you sit in a completely silent environment. I would advise my friends reading this blog to enjoy this feeling of complete silence, it re-energizes you, and fills you with a good feeling and most importantly it offer complete peace of mind. Anyways, the descend was covered in a short span of time, as we collected some dead grasses and sticks to make our bonfire (completely Partha’s idea). Lighting the Bonfire was more difficult than climbing the deomali in the windy conditions, but still we managed to light it up after all. And yes posed for photograph also: D.
