Best things to do in Indore and sightseeing in Indore

A rapidly developing city in Madhya Pradesh, Indore is the perfect example of a small town packed with the right kind of holiday experiences. Especially if you are a foodie! The Sarafa Bazaar which is open till the wee hours of morning is a must visit and should not be missed! The market opens only around midnight and this is perhaps what makes it a little more special. The bazaar offers a plethora of street food and it's one of the best foodie experiences you can have in the country. Other than that, you can visit the beautiful Central Museum. The museum houses collections dating back to the pre-historic era and if art and history interest you, do head here. Indore is also at a prime location for tons of tourist spots including Shri Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga, Patalpani and Maheshwar. If you are in the mood for trekking, you can head to Ralamandal Wildlife Sanctuary for a bit of adventure. The summer months here are quite harsh, so it's best to go during winter. The people of Indore are warm, welcoming and quite adventurous so if you happen to know an Indori, you will have a chance to explore a different side of the city.

Kalsubai Peak - Indore

Climbing the summit or Kalsubai peak is one of the best things to do in Indore as it is the topmost peak in Maharashtra standing with a height of 16446 metres. The whole hilltop is a chunk of the Harishchandragad Kalsubai Sanctuary. A village called Bari is where the route to the summit starts, followed by various trekking routes, the animal tracks in the route gifts a thrilling atmosphere to the climbers. Local guides are available throughout the year who help the visitors in climbing the summit. The route to the peak is very well marked and perfectly guides the trekkers. It is one of the most thrilling as well as enjoyable place to trek. The Kalsubai temple is situated in the summit of the peak, only three people can sit in this temple at one time. When one reaches the summit apart from the temple, the hugely spread out backwaters of Bhandardara also attracts the attention.
It was an amazing experience. We started climbing at 11 pm and finished at 4 am. It was almost a full moon night. We never felt it necessary to light a torch.

The majestic Kalsubai peak in all it glory covered by clouds, drifting apart at sometime and again covering it back. Few shots later, walking again.Up the hill, what we could see was white times infinity. Fog. Clouds. Drizzle. Wind. And in all this came the ladders! Wobbly as they are, one-at-a-time climb on the ladder, less support, you start thinking about all the things you had ever wanted to do in life. There are five such ladders en route the top. On one of them, despite people shouting from behind, mid way i stopped, just because i saw this (see below). Spectacular. Whatever settings I had on my cam set already, couldn’t sit there changing them. The pic didnt come out in the perfect way, but it was what it was.On the way up, there were many such spectacles to see, mighty waterfalls to see, wind to be blown by, drizzle to get soaked in and the adrenaline rush that gives you the push further!It took around three hours to climb to the top of the not-so-arduous trek. The weather made it happen quick without taking much halts in between, except for one where we had kanda-bhajis (yes, there is a small stall that pops out of nowhere on the way up).Up above, it was all windy again. Literally had to bend and hold on to something to stop yourself from getting blown away. And also it was all white.When we just reached there, just getting assembled, all 39 of us, there we witnessed it. The clouds gave way for the sun to shine on us. Just a 30 second window, not much. But everyone was mesmerized! Oh what a scene. And then it was back to the winds and rains galore.

Kalsubai Temple - Indore

Kalsubai is the highest peak of Maharashtra and there is some amount of flat land on the peak of it. Over here is situated the Kalsubai Temple. More than the temple, the trek is what interests people more. Kalsubai is a local deity and local people perform pujas every Tuesday anmd Thursday. During the time of Navaratri many stalls selling puja materials are set up during the 9 days.
After a small prayer at the temple and a customary group photo (cant even make out anyone’s face in it :P), the descend started. Coming down those wobbly ladders was a task at hand for everyone. But no had any idea about what the rains had been busy doing while we were at the top. Everything wet, drenched, muddy and slippery. Rocks, mud, water made the descend a bit tough, but got down there without any causalities.En route the trek, made some very good friends, a stand-up comic, a pilot and a pro-trekker/engineer for whom all this was nothing but a puny walk in the park!!

Rajwada - Indore

Even though the place was burnt down thrice, Rajwada stands to testify about a city that was super rich during its times. This structure is so grand in its construction and is highlights the influence made by the Holkar Dynasty. The place is filled with gardens and flowing fountains and even an artificial waterfall that lures both local and as well as foreign tourists. This palace is around 200 years old and is a sight that one is sure to remember for a long time.
The museum housed inside this structure was very interesting. It holds all the information you would want to know about the Holkars of the Maratha Empire.
