We explored various options for our onwards journey to Hanuwantiya from Indore and came to know that we can easily get an affordable car on rent in IndoreWe also learned that we can derive maximum mileage of this scenic road trip when we book a chauffeur driven car.  All of us wanted to sit back and relax, not worry about the terrain, or the fuel.

We just wanted to soak in the scenic drive and explore the many places to see in between.   It was a total of approximately 170 km and the expected travel time was about 4 and a half hours plus the halt time in between.  We stopped at Ujjain and Indira Sagar dam on our way to Hanuwantiya.

Your typical day in Hanuwantiya

The sight of the Narmada river here is enchanting. This water body is the backwater of the Narmada River and Indira Sagar Dam, but they actually give us the impression of a sea because of its sheer size.

The Madhya Pradesh government has developed this area as a water sport recreation place.  We reached the place early in the morning and tried our hands at various water sports available there like Para-sailing, and speed boating while some of us decided to go on a water cruise in the evening.

The cruise was great and the food they offered on board was delicious.  We did not venture out again but were told by the locals that there are many other places to explore like Boriyamal Island, that offers adventure trekking. The next day we went to explore the revered city of Burhanpur situated on the bank of the Tapti River.

While there were many temples in the proximity of this place, we chose to visit the Omkareshwar temple, which is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples. We soon went on to book an AC cab from Indore to Hanuwantiya.
