Reasons to go to Chhattisgarh

1Forests: When nature calls
Forests: When nature calls

44 percent of Chhattisgarh is covered in forests rich in teak, Sal, bamboo, sheeshal and mahua. And in the heart of it all is the verdant Barnawapara Sanctuary. It is home to tigers, leopards, hyenas, antelopes, porcupine, and many types of avifauna, sloth bears and flying squirrels. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Tomesh Verma says, “Chhattisgarh has a beautiful sanctuary here at Barnawapara. Though known for Naxalism, I did not feel any hint of it. It was all alright and I experienced one of my greatest adventure, the safari through Barnawapara, known for Asiatic tigers. I will visit with my family again.

The magic of Chhattisgarh lies in retaining the culture of the natives. It hosts a tribal belt with more than 30 separate and distinct tribes. The best part is they are very warm. They welcome you to share their forests, history, culture and ways of life.

Untapped & unexplored natural trail

As my title suggests it is an untapped tourist destination ready to explode in tourist map of India if developed and nurtured well enough. Really if you want see natural beauty up-close enough within the climes of virgin tribal lands hitherto untapped by tourists and not developed & promoted by the government. For my visit it was only one word to exclaim. WOW!

Devoid of too much facilities we are used to at other tourist destinations, this is the place to visit. Particularly I would like to mention Mainpat, called Shimla of Chattisgarh. It was used to settle some Tibetan refugees who consist of the majority population here. Really it is a beautiful & quaint little town full of must visit places around it. To mention one of the best must visit site is the Shaking Ground. You read it right the whole ground shakes here, its a huge field and when you walk or jump the ground shakes. Its really a wonder, can't explain till you see it yourself. Then there are some beautiful gardens, breathtaking waterfalls. It has got everything except too much facilities for tourists including lodging facilities.

You will have to stay at Ambikapur, as it is the nearest town to have anything worth to stay. You will have to make it your base and visit all the places. It has got numerous places to visit, but on the first day I visited the Shiv Gufa mandir and three waterfalls around it. Next day was for Mainpat. All the waterfalls I saw were really good, extra was a Tribal Dance rehearsal in a tribal village. They were practising for some festival and it it was really mesmerising. I would specially like to mention that I haven't seen such fresh vegetables and fruits in my life.

As for advice to fellow travellers don't expect to get any luxury here just visit for natural beauty and pollution free environment. , shaking ground, breathtaking waterfalls, tribal villages. Nothing extraordinary. Carry every necessary items with you and visit during winter as summer time it is too unbearable.
