Gadchiroli Feb. 15 (District Correspondent) The Geographical trip of Geography Department of Mahila Mahavidyalaya here had organized a study tour recently. The tour was led by Head of Geography Department and Principal Dr. Yogesh Krishnarao Patil.

The students were taken to a natural place called Tippagad Hills situated around 110 km from Gadchiroli city. The place is a beautiful surrounded by dense forest and a tank atop the hills. During the trip, the students wondered how the lake was formed on the high hill.

Head of Department of Geography Dr. Yogesh Patil guided the students while unravelling the mystery of this wonder of nature. Tippagad is a place at an altitude of 609 meters above sea level. A round lake is naturally formed atop the hill. On the north, east and west sides of the lake are the igneous rocks and layered hills.

Looking at the structure of the lake at Tippagad, it seems that 80 percent is made of igneous rock and 20 percent is made of stratified rock, informed Dr. Patil.

The structure of the lake is like a saucer. Due to this, the rain water is stored in the deep area of the lake from the stratified rock on the high hill during the monsoons. Due to the hard rock below the lake, the water does not seep into the ground and the dense and tall vegetation in the area reduces the evaporation of the water, due to which water is seen in the lake throughout the year, it was explained by Dr. Patil.

The students climbed the high hill and experienced the adventure. They saw the magnificent view of the hill and the lake. Prof. Kundan Dufare, Dr. Anil Chahande assisted. As many as 78 students of Geography Department, President of Geography Study Board Ms. Shubhangi Chaudhari, Prof. Vivek Yemjelwar, Prof. Sunita Salve, Prof. Jayashree Ade, Prof. Kirti Pullakwar, Gajanan Bhoyar were also present.
