You get to taste the heritage at Delhi in the beginning and then suddenly you are transferred to the wonderful land of wildlife and tribal grandeur. They say it is more rewarding to go through a wildlife experience with the mindset of a nature lover than that of a tiger spotter!

True, because then it becomes an unforgettable journey through the wild environs. So, do try this out while you enthusiastically tread through the Kanha National Park. Located in the Mandla district, this park is rich in a variety of wildlife flora fauna. Keep your fingers crossed to catch a glimpse of the wild cat!
The other part of this tour takes you to Raipur, Kawadha, Kanker and Jagdalpur which happen to be the best specimens and front runners in ecotourism in India. Apart from mesmeric waterfalls, green woods, and ancient temples, all these places have herbal gardens, natural health resorts and a rich variety of handicrafts to offer.

Lately, there has been a mention to ethno medicine being practiced here; one that seems to predate Ayurveda too. It is surely going to be an interesting journey through and through!!

Our  Tour features the following locations

DELHI: The largest mosque, the biggest temple, honky auto-rickshaws; it’s easy to distinguish Delhi. The city has been at the centre of the Indian civilisation for centuries and a major seat of power ever since the Mughals built their capital here. Modern Delhi presents a mix of colonial-era architecture, Mughal forts, and mausoleums, ancient bazaars, glitzy malls and world class restaurants. It often feels overwhelming, but given a chance, it always grows onto you. Be sure to visit Humayun’s Tomb, a 16th-century Mughal wonder inspired by the iconic Taj Mahal and Lodi Gardens, the best spot for sunsets in Delhi. There’s also the Hauz Khas Village, a throbbing hub that gained popularity with its Open Nights when those narrow alleys are transformed into cultural wonders, adorned with lights and decorated with streamers. There really is no better place to discover Delhi’s rich culture and mingle with its locals.

KAWARDHA: Just east of the Maikala Range to the SE of Kanha National Park, Kawardha is a small town in the Chhattisgarh region of MP. In this remote area, Maharaja Vishwaraj Singh has recently opened his palace to visitors. It provides a delightfully quiet unspoilt contrast with India’s big cities. You are made to feel very welcome here. Kawardha is in the centre of Baiga tribe who live in the forests surrounding the town. The Radha Krishna family temple with underground rooms and the holy water tank are nearby. Other 11th century temples in the immediate region have some beautiful carving.

KANKER: Kanker is full of small hilly pockets, it was a centre for Buddhism in the 6th century BC. This thousand-year-old town offers a splendid combination of forest, waterfalls and exquisite tribal villages nestled inside.

JAGDALPUR: Jagdalpur in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh located on the south bank of the Indravati River. While here visit Chitakoot Falls which is one of two waterfalls located in the Kanger Valley National Park, the other is Tirathgarh falls. Jagdalpur is also famous for age old wooden handicrafts.

RAIPUR: Raipur was founded by the Kalchuri King Ram Chandra of Raipur last quarter of the 14th century AD. Now, Raipur is the Headquarters of the District and Division of the same name Centrally located in the newly formed State Chhattisgarh.  Raipur is the biggest city of the Region and a fast developing important industrial centre. The establishment of Chili Steel Plant in the country has given added momentum to the pace of development of the city.

India sometimes comes across as the magician’s bag that springs out unique surprises one after the other. All the states in this colorful country have something special to offer and Chhattisgarh covered on this tour, is a classic example!
