How to Plan for Traveling Chhattisgarh from Raipur?

  1. Ambikapur Area

    The best way to drive for Ambikapur is by starting early in the morning. It’s a clear 8 to 9 hours drive from Raipur. Now you can choose to stay at Ambikapur if you’re with family. Or you can drive all the way to Mainpat for stay, although facilities won’t be as good as Ambikapur city.

  2. Bilaspur Area

    Bilaspur is the next best option after the state’s capital Raipur. Also, it is a comfortable point to start for Korba, Raigarh, Ambikapur and Chirmiri area.

  3. Raipur Area

    Raipur is the capital city of Chhattisgarh and it is well connected with rest of India with Swami Vivekananda Airport. Generally, it is the starting point for tourists who visits Chattisgarh. Raipur is best destination to start for Mahasamund, Dhamtari, Kanker, Durg, Bhilai and Bilaspur.

  4. Bastar Area

    Bastar is blessed with natural beauty and wide range of biodiversity. The main city Jagdalpur in Bastar is where most tourists would prefer to stay. Jagdalpur, Bastar is a straight 6 hours journey from Raipur. Some of the world renowned destinations like Chitrakoot and Kanger Valley is an hour and a half away from Jagdalpur.
