Tour description

Anna Phipps of Global Galivanting, got in touch with us for help in planning her trip.   Being a seasoned traveller in India, she wanted to explore a region that she had not been to before.  So we recommended her to visit parts of  Madhya Pradesh and combine it with the cities of Varanasi and Jaipur

Madhya Pradesh is one of the largest states country. It is famous for it’s various temples, forts and palaces and is home to the Kanha and Bandavgarh National Parks. Though Anna did not have enough time to visit  the southern part of the state, there are lots of interesting places to visit. From the marble rocks of Jabalpur to trekking heaven in Panchmarhi. the Religious city of Ujjain and the ruins in Mandu.

Anna started her trip in Varanasi on her journey across Central India. She visited places like Khajuraho, Orchha and Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh.  Anna also spent a few days in Jaipur, Agra and Delhi before flying home to Goa.

Khajuraho is a a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is is famous for it’s group of Hindu  and Jain temples. Orchha is a village town with interesting temples, palaces and ruins. You can also go on a few biking trails from the Orchha nature reserve. Gwalior is a city which is also known for it’s palaces and temples. The Gwalior fort and the Sas-Bahu ka temple are absolutely stunning.

With regards to travel, Anna took a combination of trains and car hires.  She stayed in a mix of home-stays across different budgets. All of the home-stays we recommend are comfortable and clean. Staying in home-stays also helps in having a rich cultural experience.

Rich history, culture and architecture makes Madhya Pradesh a great off-beat destination. Get in touch with us now if you would like our help in planning your trip to this beautiful state.
