My Trip to - A PLACE OF PEACE | PACHMARHI |was a great experience for me,as it was a unplanned trip for me.I was excited to Discover one of the best places of MADHYA PRADESH. After reaching the Place in almost double the time it takes to reach their, we were extremely tired. After resting a bit in our hotel, we were ready to explore the ' JATASHANKAR CAVE '.Cave is located in deep ravine, with enormous boulders perched above. Cave serves as a shrine to the God Shiva and is popular destination for pilgrims. Jata means hair and Shankar is another name of Lord Shiva. We explored the place for more than 3 hours and it became a great experience.
The Highest Peak of Madhya Pradesh has to offer these Mesmerizing views.Mount Dhupgarh or Dhoopgarh is the highest point in the Satpura Range and in Madhya Pradesh, India. Located in Pachmarhi, it has an elevation of 1,350 metres. Enjoying sunset from this place was the best thing to Do in Pachmarhi Travel.A wanderer would love to be here ! ❤
The locals call this place as Bara Talab and it happens to be the oldest manmade lake in all of India. Also referred to as Bhojtal as it was King Bhoj who had it built in the 11th century so that he could take a dip in its waters are be cured of a skin disease. Close to it is Kamala Park, the royal garden, a place that tourists flock to and one that cannot be missed out when one is on vacation in Madhya Pradesh. The place is kept clean and the air is fresh making this place a hit with the locals and as well as foreign tourists.
Van Vihar National Park
Van Vihar is a modern day zoological park marvel. The animals are kept in their natural habitat. Most of the animals are either orphans or brought from various parts of the state or those, which are exchanged from other zoos. No animal is captured from the forest. Van Vihar is unique because it allows easy access to the visitors through a road passing through the park, security of animals assured from poachers by building trenches and walls, chain-link fence and by providing natural habitat to the animals.
This is the first of the top 3 places in Jabalpur worth investing your time in. “Dhuandhaar” in Hindi, means “Lightening Fast”. But in this specific context, it means a kind of haze that is formed by the force of the water plunging from huge height. The water is that of River Narmada narrowing down and then falling from the rocky surface from a height of around 100 feet ! Another highlight of this point is the fact that even though there is scarce rainfall in any year, the flow of the water is not affected, don’t know how but then this is something amazing I felt
We had planed to have a visit to Omkareshwar by going through patal pani and choral dam tourist spot near indore we decided to do our journey on separate bikeWe planed to start early in the morning by 7 to 8 am but we got late and decided to explore breakfast specially Indori Poha so we simply googled popular nashta spot and reached their in anand bazare the Poha was really good coupled with jalebi.Now we started our riding journey at about 10 am. Our first target was to reach patal pani in Mhow  district the road was in good condition and the view to patal pani is superb. All green fields and small ranges. we take some photos  with our bikes .we reached patal pani at about 11 am ,stayed over their watching the waterfall which got it name as it is considered the water goes directly to patal(undergroung).now we start our journey to  choral dam on all our way we were getting a good attantion as a bikerChoral dam has a resort build by MP tourism it is well maintained had boating facility with children adventure and mesmorising viewNow it was near about 1 pm we decided to have a lunch in choral resort,it host a in-house Malwa restaurant and bar with mp tourism hospitality .the food was good and price was also not much hiked.At 2 pm we leave to Mhow to continue our journey to Omkareshwar,now we were lost in Mhow as our gps was turned off so as to save some battery for return journey .as we all know the importance of battery juice 😁😁 during travel and somehow asking local reached correct road but now the road was in its deteriorating and repair condition which make us loose time finally after a strech of 15 km we get a good road we continued our journey .now comes the best part the view from road to omkarehware was mesmorising full of greenery and zig Zag roads .we both were riding the bike near to each other so that we can stick to each other and donot get lost which may result into further delay.

High and road was also risky,we reached Indore by 10 pm have dinner and slept with dreams for next day journey to ujjain
Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka
These caves lie 45 kilometers away from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh and are a famous tourist destination on the Bhopal- Hoshangabad Highway. It is believed that these were the very caves where the Pandavas sought shelter when they were exiled. Dr. Vishnu Wakankar, a professor at the Vikram University in Ujjain discovered these caves while on an excavation during 1957-58. He strayed far from the site and stumbled upon these caves. One cannot afford to miss this place when one visits Madhya Pradesh.
When in the state of Madhya Pradesh, one should not miss the famous Pandav Caves that are located atop a small hill. Legend has it that the Pandavas from the Mahabharata lived in these caves when they were exiled from Indraprastha. There are 6 caves in total, five named after the Pandava brothers Nakul, Sahdev, Bheem, Arjun and Yudhisthir and the other is called Draupadi. These caves are over 1000 years old and are now protected by the government. The Draupadi cave is by far the cleanest and most airy while the one named after Bheem is the darkest. During the 1st century AD, Buddhist Monks sought shelter here as well.

Atop the Bandhavgarh hill lie the famous Bandhavgarh fort that is a site of great architectural significance. The place is about a thousand years old and the walls tell many a story about Kings and Queens of the bygone era. Only a certain amount of vehicles are allowed to make a trip to the fort on a daily basis. Thus one would have to contact their hotel as they usually do arrange tours to this place. The drive to the fort is filled with beautiful sights and sculptures like the Shesh Shaiya which happens to be a statute that is 35 feet tall. It depicts the Lord reclining on the sheesh nag and was supposedly built either in the 10th or 11th century BCE. The place was declared a National Park in the year 1968.
