  1. Sreejith.. still I cant believe you did it in 11 days! Really amazing stuff.. Never been to Madya Pradesh, looks like lot of things to see there. Can you tell me in leisure if visiting about 5 days should be good for Madya Pradesh, Not backpacking though. It will be family trip.

    1. Hi Raj, apologies for the late reply.
      For 5 days leisure trip with family, provided you are starting your trip from Delhi, I would recommend Gwalior, Khajuraho and Panna National Park. You can skip last 2 and visit Orchha too. But if you are directly flying into Bhopal, you can visit Sanchi Stupa, Bhimbetka rock-shelters and Satpura National Park

      Feel free to ping me if you need further help 🙂
