A visit to Dumboor Lake was special. It will stay in my mind as one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences of my travels.I had almost given up! I had come so close to it. The difficult road conditions and sparse transport system were beginning to take a toll on my adventure spirit. Damboor Lake was 115 kms from Agartala. It didn't look much. I took a bus to Udaipur and then to Amarpur. From there Dumboor was just 34 kms away at my grasp. But there were no direct taxi or bus services, which put me in a confused state. I asked few of the locals, who admitted they had never been close to the lake. Few suggested me that I go to Gandachera, some 30 kms from Amarpur. I took a beaten-up jeep, squeezed in with nine other people. When it comes to shared taxis, Indians have very poor knowledge of calculating how many people can actually fit. They try to put as much as they could.
