A beautiful Tiger reserve on the banks of the river Denwa. I have visited this place 6 times in the past 6 months and will continue visiting in the future. It has all the three things at one place one could ask for i.e mountains, forest and backwaters. Wildlife is abundant to explore. Sighting of the sloth bear and leopard is common along with Indian Bison, Sambar Deer and Spotted Deer. It is also a bird watching paradise as you can easily spot many migratory birds like kingfisher, skimmer, hornbill and many more. You can opt for elephant safari or walking safari besides jeep safari. Walking safari gives you an enthralling feel when you spot a wild animal which is only a few meters away from you. Last but the best is canoeing in the calm and serene backwaters of Denwa. You can easily spot a crocodile as you do canoeing in the same water which is the habitat of crocodiles. I personally have seen crocodile from only a few meters distance.
Well we traveled more than 1000kms on motorcycle to visit this place and it proved to be worth a lot more. They are one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. The architecture of the temples are simply stunning and I was amazed to see the beauty of the sculptures. The temples are particularly famous for the erotic sculptures. There is a light and sound show in the evening at the Western Group of Temples in which they beautifully describe the historical significance of the temples.
Oh what a place! That's why I love MP. It is bound to astonish you. MARBLE ROCKS!
Marble rocks are simply spectacular and I was left spellbound by the calmness and beauty of the place. The best part is the commentary of the local boatman. They will describe the place in the most peculiar and entertaining manner. Also the local shops also offer different things prepared from marble rocks of which I found the shots and whiskey glasses very attractive ;)
Dhuandar falls are literally dhuandar! Although the height of the waterfall is not that high but the speed with which Narmada flows gives it a spectacular view.
The birthplace of Mowgli and hence the Jungle Book. The forest is simply amazing and the chances of spotting a Tiger are really high. Besides Tiger there are much more wildlife to explore like leopard, wild dogs, spotted deer, sambar deer, vulture, jackal and many more. There is guest house at the entrance of the core area and during my stay I was able to spot wild dogs right in front of the guest house. Locals are very friendly and I got a chance to try homemade liquor which is locally known as mahua. Trust me it hits you hard, very hard :P
Also known as the queen of the Satpura ranges, Pachmarhi is a beautiful hill station with stunning waterfalls. Famous places to visit are bee falls, apsara falls and dhoopgarh. Besides these you can also go for activities like para sailing, deep forest camping, rock climbing and night forest trekking.
