Day 1: Raipur-Gangrel
Reach Raipur , check in to the hotel and relax. After resting, drive through the city for its top sights. The Urja Park is perfect for a family outing or a short stop: an energy park that kids and adults will equally enjoy with its pretty natural setting, nerd nooks and leisure entertainment such as boating. The Vivekananda Sarovar (Burha Talab) is well known for its wonderful and unique 37-foot high statue of a meditating Swami Vivekananda. In the evening people of the city head out for walks in this area and hang out at the sarovar. If you have the time, and are a cricket buff, you will probably not want to miss seeing the international level Shahid Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium (though this is outside the city).

Later on , head towards Gangrel Reservoir in Dhamtari on the river Mahanadi. This dam is popular for its sunset so carry your picnic basket and wait for the last rays of the sun to colour the vicinity orange. You can walk along the dam (tickets are available on either side of the dam) and walk the whole length of around 1.5 km, strolling along. Stand on top of the bridge-like structure and, amid the breeze, watch the waters fall through the gates to complete the experience! Return to Raipur.

Small boats downstream can ferry you right up to and underneath the waters.In the evening, explore the local markets and get a taste of local cuisine.

Day 3: Wildlife Park (48 kms/1 hour)

At Kanger you get to see another breath-taking waterfall, the seven-tiered Teerathgarh Falls. The amazing and surreal Kailash and Kutumsar Caves, with their stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations, are close by too. Enjoy your al fresco lunch at the waterfall. After sometime head back to Jagdalpur.
