Tourist Attractions of chhattisgarh


There are a variety of tourist attractions in Chhattisgarh most of which lies virtually unexplored. The unspoilt green forests, dotted with picturesque waterfalls, scenic plateaus and winding rivers offer a feast to eyes. The caves and forts of a forgotten era add to the variety of tourist attractions in Chhattisgarh. Myriads of wild lives hide in the forests of Chhattisgarh, which occupy a huge 42% of the state's land surface. Last but not the least important to mention is the lure of exotic tribal life.

Kawardha: The small age-old town of Kawardha is a tranquil retreat offering breathtaking views of nature and a rich tribal life. The royal palace introduces you to some finer glimpses of Indian royalty.

Chitrakote Falls: Deep in the heart of Bastar forest, this enormous waterfall plunges down from a height of 100 feet.

Kanker: This thousand year old town offers a splendid combination of forest, waterfalls and exquisite tribal villages nestled inside. Here is an old palace still resided by the royal family of the area, which itself is one of the major tourist attractions in Chhattisgarh.

Bhoramdeo: It is often referred to as the Khajuraho of Chhattisgarh because of its beautifully carved erotic sculptures.

Bastar: This near-perfect tribal land embodies a wild invitation into unexplored forests with waterfalls and wild animals, age-old temples, tribal dance and music. It is one of the most important eco-tourism destinations of the country.
