About the Book

This is a highly visual guide to the hill station of Pachmarhi, the Queen of the Satpuras. Located in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh, 195kms from Bhopal, Pachmarhi nestles in the craggy Satpura ranges at an altitude of 1,067 m.

This idyllic hill resort, complete with cascading waterfalls and ancient cave paintings, was rediscovered by the British in 1857. Overwhelmed by its beauty they developed it as a sanatorium for their forces.

The book explores Pachmarhi through its pristine landscape and the old world charm of its quaint bungalows and churches. There is also a detailed chapter on Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve, which includes Satpura National Park, Pachmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary and Bori Wildlife Sanctuary.

The book has a well-researched section on nearby excursions – Bhopal, Bhimbetka, Bhojpur, Tamia, Patalkot and Jabalpur.

With over a hundred and thirty stunning photographs, hand-drawn illustrations and maps, and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this guidebook is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveler.
