Pagara is a small water reservoir in jaura, in Madhya Pradesh. But visually, more than being a landscape, its a grass blanket spread over dunes of soil. Water from the reservoir fills up the gaps between the dunes and this makes for a fantastic looking scenery.

Around 10 of us started on the Sunday morning, reaching Pagara by 10am. We spent some time navigating through the maze of ups and downs. The upper areas are more grassy and lower ones are more slippery and thus riding around gets very interesting.

The distance from Gwalior to Pagara is 75km via morena and jaura and must be around 50 via tighra, although we are still to explore that route.
