A bit of history, a bit of adventure and a bit of luxury – all put together can make for a great weekend. In Gwalior and Orchha in Madhya Pradesh.
Check into Usha Kiran Palace by Taj Hotel, literally a living heritage amongst hotels in India. Explore the impressive – and historically important – Gwalior Fort and other palaces and monuments of the city. This is followed by a drive to Orchha, the temple town on the pristine Betwa River. It’s exquisite temples from stunning silhouettes at sunset with the river in the foreground. And we all go rafting on the Betwa.
Hop aboard the Kunzum Travel Truck on the Independence Day long weekend for a memorable journey. Book fast as everything sells out very fast or prices go up rapidly on such dates.
