Pictures: Let The Forests Of Chhattisgarh Speak To You

Forests can literally talk in Chhattisgarh. This is not an exaggeration. The state has recently been touted as the "best emerging domestic tourism destination" by Lonely Planet India, but you have to visit to feel the state's enigmatic and as yet untouched wilderness. Try giving the usual and crowded forest circuits of India a miss and visit the offbeat, quiet and rivetingly charming Barnawapara Wildlife Sanctuary.
