Smooth journey with several halts

We traveled from indore in evening and stopped in bhopal at friend's place. Started our journey to Pachmarhi in morning. Road is in good condition. Enjoy on the way food at local dhabas. Reached there around 12. Overall good but tired when reached there. Once you cross Satpura. Road is narrow so drive carefully and drive yourself only if you are an excellent driver otherwise do not take risk.

An average experience

Mode of Transport: Bus

From Indore at 8 pm there is a very good bus which goes via Bhopal to Pachmarhi. Pre booking on paytm was very useful and discounted for me. But in return they shifted time of bus I mean to say that our bus time was 8 pm for return and unfortunately this bus was cancelled on that day so they shifted our seating to bus which has 7 pm. Without informing us. Luckily we reached there at 6:45 and caught the bus otherwise we were in very trouble. Our going and coming both travelling was in night so we enjoyed sleeping.

My Advise is to travellers that Dont go for chauragarh mountain if with you have any old age persons or children's. Except it enjoy all sights without tension.

I have gone to Pachmarhi by train till Pipliya by train from there we booked a cab which took us to Pachmarhi. Train journey was great or I should say it was superb. Train passes through hills and after rain natural greenery was superb to watch. I loved the journey a lot. You can directly book a cab till Pachmarhi.

This route has lot\'s of traffic

Mode of Transport: Taxi

Indore to Bhopal by car is not a problem at all. The issue's is weather to go via Hoshangabad or not. By going via Hoshangabad it takes more time because of traffic. It is advisable to bypass Hoshangabad and take Bareli route. It takes about four hours from Bhopal to reach Pachmarhi by car.
