Going on a road-trip to a different state altogether was one of the things I wanted to do before I turned 25, and last year my Dad helped me tick that one task off of my bucket list. The trip from Mumbai to Varanasi was long but the cities and villages on the way kept us entertained.
The day starts with a drive from Mumbai and then halting after around 3 hours at Kasara Ghat. Then we enter the 'Heart of India' Madhya Pradesh with the classic city of Sagar and head to Maihar to visit the Maihar Mata on the 2nd day. And finally exploring the cities of Mirzapur and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on the 3rd day.
The itinerary is spread across 3 days.
