Central India is a traveller’s treat for the great variety of activities it packs into its many-textured terrain. Intriguing, unexplored, the stuff of folklores – that in a nutshell describes Central India, home to some of the wildest forests and quaintest landscapes in the entire nation.
Remote but unspoilt and breathtakingly beautiful, Chhattisgarh is home to some 40 tribes whose pointillist paintings and spindly handicrafts are as vivid as their colourful haats. Jagdalpur, the capital of the Bastar region, is an ideal base for exploring tribal Chhattisgarh. Perched on top of a pleasantly green, thinly forested 20sq km plateau, picturesque Mandu is home to some of India’s finest examples of Afghan architecture as well as impressive baobab trees, originally from Africa. It’s a great place for playing Indiana Jones amid a vast expanse of ruins. Central India is the most popular wildlife circuit in the country, boasting a diverse eco system and 22 protected parks including the top Ranthambore, Bandhavgarh, Pench, Panna and the Kanha Tiger Reserves and other hilly terrains are home to many species of animals, birds, butterflies, reptiles, amphibians and yes for the few Royal Bengal tigers left in the wild.
The ethnic heritage of the region dates back several millennia, and the wildlife here roams primeval jungles, parts of which are still beyond the reach of humans. Come here only if you want to experience adventure at its coarsest, and don’t mind the lack of creature comforts or urban amenities for the duration of your vacation. If you drop your prejudices and travel with an open mind, Central India is bound to surprise you.
