"India is a continent masquerading as a country," they say. And I can't agree more. Synonymous with culture, tradition and heritage, India is a country that deserves to be explored at length. From the mighty Himalayas in the north to the Indian Ocean in the south, India has so much to offer that just sticking to known destinations is almost an insult to this beautiful country. And all this is enough to make any travel freak get ready for impromptu road trips in India.
India is also a melting pot of culture and this has given birth to a heritage that is glorious and unmissable. And if you are interested in understanding a small part of it, these four heritage routes across India, will help you experience the best that this magnificent country can offer.

Hindustan ka dil dekho in MP: Jhansi – Orchha – Khajuraho
Religion, history and Kama Sutra are the focal points of this trail! Jhansi is the place that stands as a testament to the power of a woman. Orchha is a forgotten town that speaks volumes about a history lost somewhere in development. And Khajuraho is living art.
Time on the road
Jhansi to Orchha is just 18km and can be covered in a maximum of 40 minutes. Orchha to Khajuraho is 175km and can be covered in four hours.
Best time to visit
Madhya Pradesh is the central most state in India and experiences really hot summers. Winter months, therefore are the best to explore this heritage route. However, if you wish to add a little more to your experience, Raneh Falls in Khajuraho are a sight to see during monsoon which promises to add to the experience of road trips in India.
