Highlights of Central India (18 days)

While Madhya Pradesh is justifiably famous for its excellent National Parks and diverse wildlife, the state also has plenty on offer for culture seekers. This itinerary showcases the best cultural highlights of the state while also including the ‘must see’ sights of Delhi and Agra. Start in Delhi, famed for its history, diversity, and character before moving on to Agra by train to see the dazzling Taj Mahal. Rather than overnighting in Agra you will head to the Chambal Sanctuary for a two-night stay. Continue to Gwalior, the entry point to Madhya Pradesh, famed for the majestic Gwalior Fort. Next will be a short drive to the incredibly photogenic town of Orchha before continuing by train and private car to the Satpura National Park. Satpura National Park is India’s best kept secret and your three nights here will give you plenty of time to spot some of its diverse wildlife. From here make the short drive to Bhopal via Bhimbetka and its prehistoric cave paintings. Two nights in Bhopal will be ample time to visit the cultural highlights of the city and surrounding area to learn why this city should be known for more than its tragic disaster in the 1980s. Finish the tour with three nights in the stunning Ahliya Fort, easily one of the most dramatic and unique settings in India.
