Years of Journey
The best way to start for Ambikapur is after a day stay in Korba, when starting from Raipur. Bilaspur is another main city but it’ll add 2 more hours to Ambikapur. The most talked about destination Mainpat is an hour from Ambikapur city.
Bilaspur was the next best option after Raipur for state’s capital. It is the best starting point for journeys towards Korba, Raigarh, Ambikapur and Chirmiri area.
Raipur is the Capital city of Chhattisgarh and well connected to rest of the India with Swami Vivekananda Airport. In general it’s the starting point of tourists’ journeys. Raipur will be easier startup point for journeys on the way of Mahasamund Road, Kanker Road, Durg & Bhilai Road and Bilaspur Road.
Jagdalpur connects to Kanker Road and in itself embraces the most dense forest of India. The main city of Bastar is Jagdalpur. It is the most preferred tourist stay point. From Raipur it is 6 hours journey to Jagdalpur by roads. Jagdalpur is about an hour and a half away from most of the natural and beautiful locations like Chitrakoot and Kanger Valley jungles.
I hate it when my friends say that there is nothing special to explore in Chhattisgarh. And you people are kind of breaking that mindset through your Instagram account and website. So I love it when I visited your account for the first time. And now I want more and more people to see what Chhattisgarh offers them to explore.
