Kanha’s gorgeous forest also offers good chances of spotting the majestic tiger and other wildlife including leopards, Indian bison, deer and blackbuck. It is a stunningly beautiful park. You also visit the small town of Orchha, with its magnificent palaces and temples, and Khajuraho famed for its erotic sculptures. Round off your journey with a visit to Bhoramdeo, a village beside an 11th Century temple complex in north-western Chhatisgarh, an area far off the beaten track and ideal for exploring the life of India’s aboriginal tribes.
