Here’s a complete Madhya Pradesh (MP) tourism guide if you’re planning a family vacation in Madhya Pradesh.

Best Time to Visit Madhya Pradesh

You can visit Madhya Pradesh round the year. However, the best time to visit Madhya Pradesh is between October and March, when the weather is cool. During the months of December and January, the temperature can drop to 5 °C, so it’s recommended that you pack some woollen clothes.

How to Reach Madhya Pradesh

You can reach Madhya Pradesh by air, rail, or road. If you prefer to fly, Indore and Bhopal have international airports which see flights come in from a number of cities in India. Major towns are well-connected by trains. Important tourist places of Madhya Pradesh are connected by a network of state highways, so one can get around by bus as well. However, the ideal way to explore the state is by car. Hire a cab or drive your own vehicle.

Places to Visit in Madhya Pradesh

• Gwalior Fort – This fort is an example of a defensive structure built on top of a hill. Since it was ruled by various dynasties, it’s been subjected to various alterations. Monuments inside the fort complex include Teli ka Mandir, Gurudwara Data Bandi Chor, Man Mandir Palace, Gujari Mahal, and Assi Khamba ki Baori. There are some Jain temples too.

• Dhuandhar Falls – As the name suggests, this 30-metre waterfall cascades so rapidly that it gives the impression of generating smoke. One can stand on the banks of the Narmada to take in a panoramic view of the waterfall and listen to the roar it emits. The view is even more stunning in the moonlight.

• Sanchi Stupa – Sanchi is one of the oldest pilgrimage towns in MP. The stupa contains artefacts of the Buddha and his followers. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the stupa will enlighten you about emperor Ashoka, who originally commissioned it in the third century BCE.

• Marble Rocks – Situated alongside the Narmada River, this 8 km long gorge is a prominent tourist attraction in the state. You can hop aboard a cable car or take a boat across the river. This gigantic rock formation with its green and black volcanic ridges is a beautiful sight, especially on a moonlit night.

• Ram Raja Temple – Situated at Orchha, Ram Raja temple is a popular pilgrimage spot. This is claimed to be the only temple in India where Lord Ram is worshipped as a king. Other attractions are Orchha Fort, Jahangir Mahal, Laxmi temple, and Chaturbhuj Temple. Sunset over the Betwa River is another exhilarating experience.

• Bhimbetka Caves – A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bhimbetka cave complex spans an area of 45 sq. km. This is a natural ‘art gallery’ that houses some prehistoric cave paintings. Bhimbetka also has relics dating back to the era of Gautama Buddha.

• Patalpani Falls – Located in Mhow tehsil of Indore district, this is a fascinating sight but only during the monsoon. In summer the water dries to a trickle. The 300 ft waterfall is the perfect spot for a picnic. Those interested in trekking can find some interesting trails in the vicinity.

• National Chambal Sanctuary – Located on the Chambal River, this wildlife sanctuary spans 5,400 sq km and is protected by three states- Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. This eco-reserve aims to protect the endangered red-crowned roof turtle and the Ganges river dolphin. It offers tourists boat excursions and walking trails, which are great for spotting the different species of birds and animals here.
