Panchmarhi

Pachmarhi is a beautiful hill station in the evergreen plateau among the Mahadeo Hills of Madhya Pradesh. The visual panorama is a tapestry of red sandstone cliffs, deep gorges, verdant forests, flower-filled vales, streams and waterfalls cascading down every conceivable rock face creating pools of clear water. Natures beauty brings solace to the soul and this is every bit true of the pristine unspoilt splendour that one encounters in Pachmarhi. Besides Natures bounty this town has something for wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers, trekkers, hikers, bikers, history-buffs and pilgrims.
Concealed within deep ravines and cliffs are ancient shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva. The sacred site of Mahadeo in Chauragarh, Cave at JataShankar and Pandava Caves make Pachmarhi a pilgrimage destination. The lush green forests here provide ample opportunity for hiking and trekking. Dhoopgarh, the highest point in the Satpura range presents an amazing view of the surrounding ranges with a spectacular view of the sunset to top it.
The Satpura National Park is home to exotic bird and animal species and Government gardens and a museum are other places to visit. The town also presents an old world colonial era look with Red-roofed bungalows and pretty gardens, churches with stained glass windows, and a cantonment area. Pachmarhi is accessible by road from Bhopal, Pipariya and Nagpur with the nearest airport at Bhopal and the nearest railhead at Pipariya.

It was raining heavinly so we moved quickly and covered the place from different angles. To avoid rains I devised a trick and used my cowboy and raincoat hats as one person would hold the cap while second will hold the device right under it and click photos. The trick worked really nice and we managed to get good shots even in heavy downpour without any damage to our cameras.

I would suggest taking the upper deck ticket (which is cheaper) instead of lower one, as it gives you a better view with open space. It was approx. one hour ride, which was full of fun and masti, people started dancing on the floor, and kids were enjoying the cruise experience. The view around was extraordinary, and we felt like lost in the sea. Total paisa vasool, one should not miss this in Jabalpur for sure.
