I believe a road trip is the best way to experience a place. Driving your own vehicle gives you freedom and spontaneity. You can drive at your own pace, get down on whim and spend as much time as you like at your desired location.
Chhattisgarh is fabulous. I had heard about the Chitrakote Falls, the Bastar art and many temples and palaces of historical significance in the state, but I had no idea about its natural beauty. I’m particularly drawn towards the rural beauty of any place, and Chhattisgarh has plenty of it. You may drive through any part of the state, and you are likely to find sprawling farm fields, scenic water bodies, pretty white temples, mud huts, cattle with their shepherd, and tribal folks carrying out their daily tasks.
