The Buddha and the Beasts: Central India

February 2020

Madhya Pradesh deserves to be better known. This state occupies a large portion of central India. Here are the remarkable Buddhist ruins at Sanchi, evocative caves at Bimbeka, and four outstanding national parks. We’ll end the tour with a visit to to the temples at Khajuraho, famous for their erotic carvings (and offering a great deal more!). We can expect to be very comfortably accommodated at each stage. The tour is led by Rufus Reade.



The stupa at Sanchi (3rd century BC); the caves at Bimbeka; 3 nights in each of the Satpura National Park, Pench National Park, Kanha National Park, & Bandhavgarh National Park; Khajuraho Temples; incredible range of birds and mammals.
