The multi-faceted nature of Indian culture and religion is manifested throughout this predominately rural region which is dominated by Mumbai – a pulsating metropolis of grand colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers. Some of India’s most evocative religious and historic sites are found in central India with the Buddhist complex at Sanchi, remains at Mandu and carvings and frescoes of the Ajanta and Ellora caves particular highlights. The rugged heart of this region shelters the national parks of Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench, and Satpura – the latter of which can be explored on foot. These reserves support a remarkable variety of animal and birdlife with tiger the undisputed draw. For those looking for something different, little-visited Chattisgarh is the ultimate ‘off the beaten track’ destination. All of our holidays and tours to central India are unique and fully personalised.
