Photographer's Note

Hello my friends,

This is my first post of Marble Rocks to TrekEarth, I traveled earlier this place but it is my second time i.e. in the second week of April, 2013 when I returned from Kanha National Park. It is a wonderful place. Here an egret was searching fish in the river Narmada when the river flows inside the beautiful Marble rocks.

The Marble Rocks is an area along a river in central India near the city of Jabalpur in Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh state. The river Narmada has carved the soft marble, creating a beautiful gorge of about 3 km in length. It is a popular Indian tourist destination. The local marble is mined and carved into various figures and transported all over India.

The Marble Rocks are a gorge along part of the Narmada River痴 1,077 km path through Madhya Pradesh. The white marbles are predominantly rich in magnesium and are closer in hardness to soap stone. This softness allows them to be carved easily using just a scalpel. The area is also rich in blue and brown colored marble

The best experience can be procured only if you enjoy the boat ride on a moonlit night. From November to May, which is an ideal time to visit these saccharine rocks, boating is allowed here. A new ambit, of floodlighting has been done here, that adds to the glamour. The view of these rocks amongst the river on moonlit night make them appear like a sparkling of diamonds on a silver blanket.

Hope you enjoy it,

best wishes to all,
