We are 180 kms south-east of Bhopal, which is three-and-a-half hours by road (via Bhimbhetka and Hoshangabad). Bhopal is the state capital (of Madhya Pradesh) and is thus well-connected by air to other cities in India such as Mumbai, Delhi, Nagpur and Hyderabad. As also by train.
There are several train routes that you could consider for getting to Bhopal. The Delhi-Bhopal Shatabdi Express connects the two cities, and is also a possibility for those extending their journey from Gwalior, Agra and Jhansi. Other railway junctions in the vicinity include Jabalpur and Itarsi. You could catch the Jan Shatabdi from Jabalpur at 6 a.m and alight at Pipariya station at 9:30 a.m. Forsyth’s is an hour’s journey by road from Pipariya. Itarsi Junction, a station that straddles the North-South rail link, is again well-connected to several Indian cities. It is a 90-minute ride by road from Forsyth’s.
Pench Tiger Reserve is located to the south-east, a seven-hour journey by road. The route will take you past Seoni, Chhindwara, the Tarnia Ridge and Pachmarhi to Forsyth’s. Pachmarhi, the charming British-era hill-station/summer retreat, the only one in Central India, is a two-hour-drive from Forsyth’s.
