Jungle Caravan to take visitors to forest areas
Later this month, the Madhya Pradesh Eco-Tourism Development Board is launching a Jungle Caravan to allow tourists a chance to experience the many sites of natural beauty surrounding Bhopal.
The state’s capital itself has plenty to offer – it is called the ‘City of Lakes’ for a good reason – but the tourism board is now turning its attention to the forest areas of Kerwa, Van Vihar, Samardha, Kathotiya and Chidikhoh, the Times of India reports.
During the tours, visitors will have the opportunity to receive guidance about the area and engage in bird watching, boating, bullock and cart rides, rock climbing and rappelling.
Areas like the Van Vihar National Park, which has a managed animal population, also give tourists the chance to spot creatures such as tigers and panthers, as well as cheetals and others roaming free.
It will cost about Rs 800 (just £9) to take a Jungle Caravan expedition.
