Syntheri rocks on Kaneri river, Dandeli

Syntheri rocks is a picturesque spot in Dandeli. Next to Kaneri river lies gigantic rocks, close to 300 ft tall. Located deep inside Dandeli- Anshi reserve forest, Sytheri rocks is a nice place to spend few hours.

Going close to the river and rocks involves climbing down 200 steps, which you'll have to climb up on the way back.

Entry to the venue is controlled by forest department. Open from 10 AM to 5.30 PM and there's a nominal entry fee of Rs 20 per person and Rs 20 per car. The last 2 kms are bad roads, better covered with a  high ground clearance vehicle.

Above one is clicked with 8-16 wide angle lens borrowed from Sandeep. Below snap is clicked with reduced shutter speed to get the milky effect.

Another interesting thing in Syntheri rock is a collection of rock samples. If geology is your subject of interest, this place is a gold mine.

   Rocks are shaped by water flow over centuries

  Swimming is reportedly very dangerous.
