Nearby Areas & Attractions
At the time of staying at the palace visit to tribal villages to watch and participate in their festivals. And have a walk around the villages finding out about (and photographing) their way of life: we visited a village nursery and a school for the older children and had lunch in the village served in bowls made from banana leaf. The journey to the rock paintings gave you the opportunity to observe rural life - with herders taking their cattle to pastures (with buffalo detouring to swim in the local lake), people working in fields and women working in their homes. Guests can also visit Chitrakoot Water Fall, Kondagaon Dhokra Village.
