If you’re in Madhya Pradesh, you have got to experience the scenic beauty of Tawa Dam and Reservoir on the Tawa water. A visit to Madhai – a reserved forest and integral part of the Satpura Biosphere Project located at the entrance of Satpura forest is also a must. Together both Tawa and Madhai form the western boundary of Satpura National Park and Bori Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Tawa Dam and Reservoir offers a scenic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is set amidst lush verdant greenery, and offers much scope for adventure. It’s absolutely important to catch an enchanting sunset from the dam. Even more enchanting is the lake cruise, which takes you on a serene hour-long ride along the dreamy little islands dotting the reservoir and the panoramic hills of the Satpura and Churna. You can indulge in a jungle safari at the Satpura Tiger Reserve for some thrill and adventure.
Madhai is located right at the entrance of the most exquisite and beautiful forest of Satpura. Few places in the world can compete with its raw wilderness, absolute tranquillity and complete beauty. It’s delightful to see the rich wildlife here, the sprawling meadows, unending backwaters and spell-binding views that leave you mesmerised.
December and January are the perfect months to enjoy camping near the Tawa Reservoir or in the amazing town of Madhai. You could choose to camp at the gate of the Satpura Tiger Reserve and experience the thrills of the wilderness like never before. Since the campsite is only 20 yards away from the forest, there’s a high chance of you spotting some famous wildlife coming for water at the Denwa river. Various other adventure activities like trekking, bird watching, wildlife sightings, cycling, rope activities, team building games, fishing, and a morning yoga session can be enjoyed here. To make the experience even more memorable, remember to build an amazing campfire in the quiet environs of the campsite.
