Is there any one of us who has not been overwhelmed by the stunning pictures of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA? But, do you know that India can boast of its very own stunning canyon crafted by the waters of the Pennar at Gandikota, Andhra Pradesh? One might look at the gently flowing Pennar and wonder if this river is capable of creating the spectacular gorges that one sees at Gandikota, but this magnificent canyon is the work of the Pennar indeed as it has eroded through Which is India’s equivalent of the layers of pink granite as it meandered through the hills.
