Overview

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.

The heart of Central India is a treasure trove of natural richness, wildlife, history, heritage & beauty. This journey takes us through a land which exudes timelessness in every way. The exotic land is an intoxicating mixture of rich history, vibrant sights, awe inspiring art and shrines.  Central India is home to many historical and natural wonders that are well off the main tourist routes.

Ancient wonders include the intricately carved Khajuraho Temple (Chandela dynasty temples at Khajuraho), the impressive fort city of Gwalior, and the relaxed village of Orchha, with its array of well-preserved temples and palaces. Further south, the are the Buddhist stupas of Sanchi and 15th-century citadels of Mandu. Madhya Pradesh offers you a wonderful mix of nature, heritage, wildlife and spirituality.
