If Kerala is God's own country, then Chhattisgarh is a close second. Untouched by the effects of urban development, it is a magical land of unsullied beauty and grace. Though it isn't overwhelming with tourism infrastructure, it has facilities to suffice a tourist. But Chhattisgarh is sure to score with those appreciating nature, ethnic diversity and the simple ways of living.
Highlights: Stay in log huts overlooking the Chitrakote Falls, marvel at the stunning Bhoramdeo temples, visit the homes of Bhils, Gonds and other tribes, stay at a royal farm, walk through dense jungles and enjoy a tribal haat.
Best Time to Visit: The summer heat is at its peak in April, May and June with temperatures rising to the high 40's. Monsoon sets in late June and the scenery comes alive. During these months, Chhattisgarh is dotted with lush paddy fields, beautiful cloud formations, numerous waterfalls and refreshing sporadic showers. The best tourist season is from November to January, when you can explore leisurely and comfortably.
