Madhya Pradesh makes us wonder. How on earth, a state this beautiful and rich in history, has remained untouched from mainstream tourism? From the folklores of Ahilya at the beautiful Maheshwar waterfalls, to the Stupa of Sanchi, to the sacred corridors of Ujjain and forts of Mandu, this place is steeped in history and spirituality.
While taking that boat ride amidst the mountain-high marble rocks at Bheda Ghat, don’t you feel like you and the moon are the only one on the planet? Narmada, one of the holiest rivers of India, runs all through the state, providing serene riverbanks and majestic waterfalls. Get drenched in the gushing falls of Panchmari or explore the dense forests of Patalkot. Satpura ke ghane jungle, anyone?
If it is wildlife you seek, Bandhavgarh and Kanha provide ample opportunities to spot your beasts and commune with nature.
But you know what MP is most famous for? Its food. Everyone in this state is a foodie. And you are never far from a poha-jalebi stall.
