MP Tour Diwali 2008

DSC01229  DSC01362In Diwali of 2008 (October 25 to November 1, 2008), we (Rajan, Avinash and Sanju Badhe) went to Madhya Pradesh. We had booked hotels and made arrangement for Madhya Pradesh local Travel through (Vinod Maheshwari). We chose Madhya Pradesh Golden Triangle (Jabalpur, Kanha and Pachmarhi) for our tour. We took train to Jabalpur and ended the tour by taking train back from Pipariya – Nearest rail station for Pachmarhi. We had thoroughly enjoyable time in MP. The jungles are thick. There is abundance of flora and fauna all around the places that we visited. Our main attraction was to see tiger in Kanha. Despite making two attempts – one in the afternoon and other in early morning, we did not get glimpse of the great animal but that was compensated to the extent by the birds and other animals that we saw in Kanha. Out of the three spots – perhaps Kanha was the best. We stayed in Jabalpur for a night, 2 nights in Kanha and 3 nights in Pachmarhi. If we were to make another visit, I would definitely give couple of more nights to Kanha! The food served in all the three places was simply superb/excellent.

Hotels Used –

  • Jabalpur – Vijan Palace – The hotel location is not that great but once inside, it is pretty decent. Food is excellent.
  • Kanha – Kanha Resort – The hotel is located in buffer zone – around 6 kms away from the main gate to the Kanha Sanctuary. This was the best hotel amongst the three hotels where we stayed.
  • Pachmarhi – Hotel Pachmarhi – Not so great – in terms of location or decor but food was simply excellent/superb! Hotel staff was extremely courteous.
