Melghat tiger reserve is a true forest in its kind. This is the place for nature lovers, who like to walk through or take their own car in the forest.More » « Less
I had a very pleasing experience at Melghat and loved its surroundings.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food here can be a problem for people who wish to dine only in the restaurants. Here you will only find dhabas and that too not the one you usually see on any highway. These are few dhabas at Semadoh village where the people of the village have started small time eaterias at their home with basic facilities. Again you cannot order anything and everything from the menu card. You have to ask what vegetables are available and that can be served to you accordingly. You wont even find and normal usual brand of bottled water and that is why in my trip I had carried boxes of packed water bottle from Mumbai itself.
Activities & things to do: Main activity would be a forest visit for wildlife. It can be a trek or a drive inside the forest. In my forest visit I could only spot few Bisons grazing in the wild.
Other than that a days (or even a half day) visit to the nearby hill station of Chikhaldara can be planned.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Carry your brand or water if you are not comfortable with the local brand available there.
There are no Hotels at all for stay, only forest rest houses. They are not very clean so do take your bed sheets, pillows, towels and other basic supplies. No mobile network except BSNL works in these areas and around.
A TORCH AND CANDLES FOR THE ROOMS ARE A MUST.
