Raipur - BilaspurTo reach Bilaspur, I took a flight to Raipur - the nearest airport. I waited at the airportarrivals as one by one my girl gang members arrived at the airport from different Indian cities. Raipur airport arrival section was clean and well organized. The food options here are very limited but you will find many options for shopping. The one that caught my eye was a government shop - Chhattisgarh herbal products.

If you like history, culture and nature, then you will love Jabalpur. Located in Madhya Pradesh, the city has a lot to offer travellers – from temples to forts and nature to wildlife. The most famous tourist spot is the Dhuandhar Falls in Bhedaghat that flows with immense power. The water makes its way through the well-known marble rocks that cast myriad-coloured shadows all across the landscape. For those interested in history, the Chauragarh Fort and Rani Durgavati Memorial and Museum make for an interesting tour. The Dumna Nature Reserve Park is a great place for birdwatching, though the only animals you'll find here are crocodiles. End your tour by offering prayers at the Hanumantal Bada Jain Mandir, which was constructed in the 17th century. Jabalpur has its own airport and frequent flights are available from all major cities of India. Jabalpur also has a railway station that lies on very prominent rail routes.
