Central India has always been challenging to travel and hence remained remote and less explored. The very heart of India has it all – from unhurried settlements of Orchha & Ahilya, the most impenetrable fort of Gwalior which is just 3 hours from Agra but still ignored by visitors. The sleepy town of Khajuraho and its exquisite stone carved temples are a UNESCO listed heritage site. The many national parks form part of Central India’s natural heritage and in fact inspired Rudyard Kipling to write ‘The Jungle Book’ and share its fascinating stories. The forests of Bandhavgarh, Panna, Pench, Satpura & Kanha have the highest density of tiger population apart from other wild animals and an amazing birdlife. For a tailor-made holiday, the region has boutique hotels, heritage forts & palaces and luxury tented camps for a lifetime experience. Further into Chattisgarh, stay at Kawardhha Palace, an authentic experience to uncover the rural and tribal life in the central region. Spend a few nights at the adorable Ahilya Fort in spiritual Maheshwar on the banks of serene Narmada river. This is one of the finest heritage hotels in India located within the walls of a 16th century fort.
