Tips for Journey

In terms of connectivity Chhattisgarh is little backward as compared to other states and the reason behind this anomaly is that most of the part of this state is still under the forest cover. But major cities like Raipur, Raigarh are having all types of modes of transportation. People tend to avoid coming into the season of monsoon and in the month of May and June. In the month of summer hot air blow all across the region and visiting different places a hectic work. Although there is no scarcity of Hotels and guest houses, but their price shoots up in the festive season. So, prior coming to here, have your rooms booked. Due to some internal disturbances in the state, you may have to go through several security checks. Since connectivity to remote areas is weak, having your own means of transportation is a nice option when coming to these areas.
