Why You Should Visit Madhya Pradesh During Monsoon
Madhya Pradesh can surprise even seasoned tourists with its incredible attractions. The state is called the “Heart of India” due to its central location. Whether it is nature, culture, or historical places, there are many places to visit in Madhya Pradesh for seasoned and new travellers. Trek through the hilly areas, pay a visit to old temples or go on a jungle safari with friends. There are numerous things to do in Madhya Pradesh for all kinds of people. Madhya Pradesh has numerous tourist places you can visit at any time of the year. However, monsoon is the best time to explore the state.
Most places in Madhya Pradesh have a hot climate. The summer season is long, and the region faces blistering hot weather with the mercury rising each day. However, monsoon brings the much-needed respite with moderate to heavy downpours. The temperature drops down, and the weather becomes pleasant, an ideal situation to travel.
With the arrival of the rainy season, the dry and barren regions are covered with greenery. The forests become lively with the trees laden with new leaves. The places appear to become cleaner with refreshing new energy.
Many tourist places become prone to landslides, flash floods, and other natural calamities during the monsoon. However, there are lesser chances of facing such issues when touring Madhya Pradesh during the monsoon.
Also known as Kanha-Kisli national park, it is the largest national park in central India and an important tiger reserve. The park is also home to various exotic animals like Black Ibis, Indian Leopard, Sloth Bear, etc. All flora and fauna become alive during the monsoon.
The Kanha jungle resort by Club Mahindra can be an ideal place to stay while exploring the park. The resort is surrounded by forests so that you can experience the adventure of living in the wild.
Bandhavgarh is famous for its open jeep tiger safaris. The area has one of the world's highest densities of Bengal tigers. Monsoon is the best season to explore this park's rich flora and fauna when some of the rare species of animals and exotic birds are easier to spot in the open.
Consider staying at Bundela Resort, a Club Mahindra affiliate hotel, while exploring Bandhavgarh. Twittering bird, whispering trees, or a tiger’s roar- understand the language of the forest at Bundela resort.
Panchmarhi, the famous hill station, is also known as the “Queen of Satpura”. It is one of the best places to visit in Madhya Pradesh at any time of the year. However, the place becomes other-worldly during the monsoon. Greenery takes over the jungle, and numerous waterfalls break out, providing a mesmerising view to the explorers.
The mighty Narmada river swells during the monsoon. As a result, the cascading Dhuandhar falls in Jabalpur become more active. The blissful sight of mist blowing up from the falling waters will feel you up with childlike enthusiasm. No wonder Aishwarya Rai danced her heart out here while shooting for a song for “Guru”.
The ruins of Mandu are a History lover's paradise. However, the place can become unbearably hot during the summer season. So, the monsoon is the best time to explore this ancient fort city while appreciating the picturesque greenery all around.
Monsoon can be a time to stay at home for many. But, for a wandering soul like you, it is the time to pack your rucksack, grab your camera, and go on a journey to explore the beauty of India. This time, let it be Madhya Pradesh.
