Bailadila Range, is a mountain range rising in the Deccan Plateau about 200 km west of the Eastern Ghats.It has been named bailadila because it looks like hump of an ox . It is located near Kirandul town in the Dantewada district of southern Chhattisgarh, India.[2]

Highest point in Chhattisgarh[edit]

The range is located in the northeastern area of the Deccan Plateau. It extends in a roughly SW - NE direction for a length of about 70 km south of the Indravati River.[3] Rising to a height of 1,276 m, one of the hills of the Bailadila Range is the highest point in the state of Chhattisgarh.

The hills are located at a distance of about 40 km south west of Dantewada, the district headquarters in the state.[4] Formerly the Bailadila slopes were thickly wooded, but the range has been a mining area producing very high grade iron ore and the mineral extraction has left many areas of the mountains scarred.[5]
