Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Madhya Pradesh

The Madhya Pradesh is one of the larger states in India. It is one of the least touched by tourists and has many places worth visiting. You can go to the old palaces of the Orchha region, the sculptures in Khajuraho, the religious stupas at Sanchi, the local exotic flora and fauna at one of the many national parks, and much more.

The best time to visit the Madhya Pradesh is between October and April, as these are the colder months of the year. The months of May and June are the summer, which can be very harsh indeed. There are many music and dance festivals in and around the state during the months of February, March and December.

Staying in the Madhya Pradesh is fun and easy. Many hostels dot the region, along with other hotels and guest houses. You can search for hostels located near the parks and other attractions in the state. The hospitality of the local populace is one of the best anywhere. Hostels in the region are typically very affordable, and aren’t too hard to find either. Your best bet is to go in with dollars or GBP and change it at a bank.

One of the biggest attractions about the Madhya Pradesh is how well-preserved the historical sites in the area are. There are many cities that were abandoned in the past. Their architecture and layout provide an insight into ancient building techniques. There are also temples from different eras. You should check out the erotic temples at Khajuraho. They are a symbol of the origins of the Kama Sutra. There are twenty temples with many sculptures and paintings, all of which are erotic in nature.

If you’re a nature lover, the Bandhavgarh and Kanha are two national parks. The Kanha park is the more affordable of the two, although the former has attractions like tigers, ancient forts, sloths, deer, and elephants. Kanha was the inspiration behind the world-famous novel, The Jungle Book. It features forests of bamboo, grassland, lakes, and streams. There are many species of local wildlife to observe.

One final suggestion is the Gwalior hilltop fort. You should check it out if you’re a fan of imposing structures. Towering over the city, it is over 1000 years old. Palaces and old temples are located in the walls of the fort.
