Adventure Tourism in Amravati
Amravati or the “abode of the immortals” is a city that has its existence etched since the historical times of the Lord Krishna. The place is situated in the India’s Tapi Basin, at the centre of the Maharashtra State’s northern border. The entire region itself exudes a mysticism and supernatural kind of mysteriousness due to its superb mix of greenery, hillocks, mountain peaks and the valley of Wardha nearby.
Due to this unparallel geographic layout, the place is also inhabited by an enviable variety of flora and fauna. Not just the timeless temples and historical structures that dot this place, the simple wild forests also make up as a bouquet of adventure opportunities for any kind of adventurer. Be it the call of the wild or the mystery of the bygone days, a person can either visit the place for leisure vacations or they can visit the thrill of wanderlust into the unknown.
Amravati has a number of popular adventure destinations that are thronged by thousands of visitors across the year. People interested in wildlife make it a point to visit the Melghat Tiger Reserve forests and the Wan Sanctuary. People who have a liking towards heights and hills, the Chikaldhara hill resort comes up top in the list of must visit places in the Amravati region.
For people who have a fetish for archaeological sojourn, the Gawilgadh Fort and Narnala Fort will be a journey to reckon with. For the folks who want to enjoy the tranquil and peace of large expanse of water, the Semadoh Lake and Shakkar Lake provide the perfect backdrop to the craving for a leisurely vacation. Apart from this, there are many small and big temples embedded in the terrain that themselves provide a lot of opportunities of trekking, in order to reach these places.
However, the options for camping at these sites are not very encouraged due to the proximity to wildlife in the region. Few tour operators do provide the option, but overnight stays in the wildlife is best avoided due to reasons of safety.
