The ‘Darekasa Hills’ is located in the Gondia district of Maharashtra. Between the Balaghat (Lesser) Bagh and Bhandara Bagh rivers, it creates a water chasm. These slopes are heavily covered in trees. The average elevation of these hills is somewhat greater than those of the hills further west. These hills are underlain by muscovite-biotite granites. The hills have some curious caves possessing a good water supply.

Location of Darekasa Hills

In the Indian state of Maharashtra, Gondia (sometimes written Gondiya) is a city and municipal council that acts as the administrative center for the district that bears its name. Due to a large number of rice mills in the vicinity, Gondia is often referred to as Rice City. The only nearby city to Gondia is Tirora (33 kilometers). The sole airport in the district is Gondia Airport.

The Gondi people, an Adivasi group in central India, are the inspiration for the name of the area. The Great Famine of 1876–1878, which occurred during British control in India, provided a chance for the building of the 150 km (93 mi) Nagpur Chhattisgarh Railway, a meter-gauge rail line linking Nagpur and Rajnandgaon.

The construction of the Gondia Railway Station coincided with the opening of this line in December 1888. In order to improve and expand this line, Bengal Nagpur Railway (BNR) was established in 1887. In 1902, BNR was hired to construct a railway line from Gondia to Jabalpur with branches from Nainpur to Mandla as well as Nainpur to Seoni and Chhindwara. Gondia expanded and thrived thanks to these connections and the trade they provided.
