Madhya Pradesh



Chhattisgarh: An introduction

One needs a different approach altogether for Chhattisgarh as it is very different from other well-known tourist destinations in India. It has in its bouquet some totally unique sites, which are enticing to a varied spectrum of travelers.

Chhattisgarh is a new destination and has gained popularity in the last couple of years after the creation of this new State. The fact that the tourism potential of Chhattisgarh was totally neglected when it was part of Madhya Pradesh has created an aura of remoteness for the green State. Due to this remoteness and isolation, the human intervention in the jungles is minimum and one can enjoy the nature's beauty. There are long stretches of virgin forests that take you back in time.

What is important for visitors to note is that the Tourism industry in Chhattisgarh is in its infancy which in other words means that you need to do your home work before you get down here. You need to be very organized and chalk out an exact itinerary well in advance. The Tourist Spots in Chhattisgarh are scattered all across the State and unfortunately there is no effective public conveyance facility available that connects all these places. Some of the important spots are way into the countryside off the National Highways. Similarly the accommodation facilities are also limited to the major cities only. As a result of this, one has to spend a lot of time traveling between the destinations. This also gives a chance to explore the beautiful countryside and recall life when foliage was the only word associated with the jungles and to understand what we have lost for the concrete. We can touch, through these journeys the lifestyle of the natives and can witness the varying colors and facets of the local culture. It is indeed a great experience to drive along as the roads are excellent. So just prepare yourself for a journey into a destination that takes you back in time and pampers your senses with some of the best and the most soothing sites that you will ever see in your lifetime.

How to get there:

By Air :

The capital city of Raipur is the only commercial airport in Chhattisgarh. It is well connected with all the major cities in India with daily direct flights to Mumbai, New Delhi and Kolkata. Other than the government airlines i.e. Indian Airlines, private airlines like Jet Airways and Kingfisher operate regular flights from Raipur.

By Rail:

Chhattisgarh is very well connected through railways with the other parts of the country. Raipur and Bilaspur are the two most important railway junctions in Chhattisgarh and they are connected with almost daily trains to almost every part of the country. These two stations are on the main trunk line that connects Mumbai and Kolkata and are just an overnight journey from these two cities. However, itís a 24hr journey by train from New Delhi to reach either Raipur or Bilaspur. Hence you can club your visit to Chhattisgarh with a legendary train journey through the Great Indian Railways. To find out about the train connectivity you can visit www.indianrail.gov.in

By Road:

There is an elaborate road network spread all across the State. There are 11 National Highways crossing through the State. Road is the best means to travel within Chhattisgarh once you have arrived. Most of the important destinations are approachable by road only and road travel offers an excellent opportunity to experience the country side. The road conditions are generally very good with some exceptions.

When to go:

Chhattisgarh is a destination which can be explored through out the year depending upon the interest of the visitor. The weather is generally not extreme although summers can be sometimes very hot especially in the Central part of the State. The rains are there during July till September and it is a good time to the see the many wonderful waterfalls but during this time all the sanctuaries and the National Parks are closed. September till February can be termed as one of the best time to visit as during this time you can also visit the National Parks and Sanctuaries and some of the important tribal festivals like the Bastar Dusshera , Narayanpur Madai etc are organised during this period. It may get a bit hot from April to May but then it is a good time to explore the wildlife of the parks clubbed with the numerous magnificent archaeological monuments.
