  • 2 Gangani Danga. A natural river canyon that has different spectacular types of formation due to soil erosion. Better known as the "Grand Canyon of West Bengal", Gangani is a very popular picnic spot. As you enter the area, there is red rocky land that leads to a sharp drop to the Shilabati Valley or "canyon floor". You can view the splendour of the laterite cliffs floating above. As you descend the colours change to various hues of yellow. In the dry season, there is not much water in the river, but as the rains come, the river occupies many of the deeper parts of the canyon alleys. As you get deep into the canyon, you can get a feeling of the actual shapes and sizes of imaginary things. Some piece looks like a lion, another has the look of a pagoda. There is a large cave with an interesting story. Gangani, West Bengal (Q60750516) on Wikidata Gongoni Danga on Wikipedia
