Bhimbetka Cave Paintings, Bhopal

History of Bhimbetka Rock Shelters

Series of natural rock shelters in the foothills of the Vindhya Range, central India, Bhimbetka rock shelters are located approximately 28 miles (45 km) south of Bhopal, in west-central Madhya Pradesh state. Comprising around 700 shelters, the complex is discovered in 1957 and is one of the largest repositories of prehistoric art in India. Surrounded by the Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary, its shelters are the world’s greatest testimonies to the first traces of homosapiens, i.e. the modern humans. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 2003, this place has managed to leave its imprint on the international map.   

Deriving from the mythological association of the place with Bhima, one of the Pandavas in the Hindu epic Mahabharata, the place Bhimbetka was named after him. Sketching the human journey from the Palaeolithic Age to the Medieval Period, the Bhimbetka caves boast geometric figures, linear representations, and paintings which are more than 30,000 years old. Listed amongst the must-visit attractions on a tour to Bhopal or Madhya Pradesh, a glimpse at the caves paintings of this popular rock shelter is meant to blow its visitors’ mind. Go aghast while reading through a sequence of cultural development to discover how from early nomadic hunter-gatherers to settled cultivators to expressions of spirituality, homo-sapiens have grown. And, find a resemblance of the present-day cultural traditions of agrarian people inhabiting the nearby villages with those represented in the Bhimbetka cave paintings.

Experiences exquisiteness:

Replete with dense forests and a rugged canvas, Bhimbetka Caves of Madhya Pradesh is all about solace amidst the lofty quartzite rocks and craggy cliffs. Depicting humans’ experimentation with creativity during different periods of time, this cave stores a bounty of mysteries to be resolved. The major highlights of this rock shelter include, silhouetted paintings of elephants, tiger, peacock, bulls, and some 16 different species; drawings of humans; dancing figures of men and women, and much more.

    Ashutoshmjoshi's 4 days trip to Bhopal

    We travelled to Ujjain, Indore, Omkareshwar, Maheshwar and Mandu. Our travel was planned earlier but we decided the travel date at very short time of one day. Still all arrangements were done very well by Club7 team at that short notice. Excellent support before and during the travel. Whatever fe
    edback being given about hotel and travel was being implemented immediately. Neha was checking with us regularly about how the trip was going on. One area to improve is the Driver. He was very good in his driving and very reliable. He was local but was not showing any interest in explaining local things or nor telling us what we should see or not see. He was not even aware of few places. When we couldn't locate him in one of the tourist places, he was not ready to come to the place where we were waiting. He needs to be trained on basic hospitality with customers.

    Souvik's 3 days trip to Bhopal

    Day 1: We reached the hotel MPT Amaltas, Pachmarhi. Initially i was worried about hotel location and ambience, but Travel Agent Club 7 Vacations continues tried to convince me that not to worry about hotel. But when i reached Hotel, i impressed! We reached at 12:30hrs But Hotel Check in time as per
    guidelines is 14:00hrs, But Hotel Receptionist is too humble and understanding person, so that he provide us for early checking without any cost. After that, Receptionist asked for Lunch(Paid Basis) but fun fact is that, they did not charged for lunch. As we reached pachmarhi by car so we are too much tried, so we took rest. In the evening, We explore local markets by our own car. Day 2: Cab Operator which was arranged by Club 7 Vacations called me at 9am and told me to get ready on 9:30am, but unfortunately Gypsy arrived at 10am. Then we proceed to Handi Khoo, In Handi Khoo generally knows as Suicide Point is very beautiful, We have done Horse Riding, ATV Riding etc. After that we went to Apsara Vihar, small trekking to see waterfall, But when we reached View point of Apsara Vihar we all said "this is it" actually very thin waterfall you will see, from my point of view its not worthy. Then we went Bee Fall, we can bath here, but be cautious cause no safety was there. i recommend not to bath in Bee Fall. Then we went to Dhoopgarh, After reaching Dhoopgarh, we felt we are in heaven, Dhoopgarh is Awesome place to Sunrise and Sunset. We must visit here. After that, trip ended for the day. Day 3: Today Gypsy driver arrived on time, First we went to Gupt Mahadev Mandir then Bada Mahadev Mandir, then we headed to Pachmarhi Lake, we have done boating here. After that, we checked out from hotel, And Back to Normal Boring life. From Trip Starting to Trip End, Ms, Neha Nema from Club 7 Vacations continuously take follow up, whether we reached hotel or not, any complain after reaching room, regarding cab, tour. Whenever we faced any issue we called to Neha Mam, everytime she received our call and help us

    Our experience was way Soul satisfying after a very long time. Pachmari is absolutely beautiful place to visit. All the resorts were good - especial remark to the Rock end manor and Tawa resort ..staff was helpful and polite with no hassle..food was delicious but on the very same page Bison resort d
    idn't met the standards though we managed any how. The trip ended with a blink but we had a good time ,the Bee fall was the main attraction ..the water felt heavenly..all the temples were well maintained at extreme locations..jungle safari was fun - Our guide was humble and dedicated to show us tiger ..other than that we saw Bison , spotted deers, antelope, wild boars ,monkeys and various migratory birds .Boat safari was also fun but we didn't explored much due to low level of water..the last day on Tawa resort was the perfect end to the trip with the breath taking view ..had a life time moment at Tawa Dam and captured the view in soul to cherish at hard times..had a wonderful time after a while ..we'll try to visit again ..thankyou
