Get in[edit]

A car from Bhopal with a good driver will, with luck, take about one hour.

Fees/Permits[edit]

100 Rs. for foreign, 5 Rs. for Indians. In addition, there is a small fee for the vehicle.

Get around[edit]

See[edit]

A well maintained trail winds between the rocky outcrops taking visitors past and, sometimes, through the rock shelters and to the major rock paintings. The shelters are, variously, caves, overhangs and arches. Interpretive signs have been set up by the Archaeological Survey of India. The trial also includes a viewpoint for the tortoise rock.

The last outcrop (by the carpark) also houses a shrine to Shiva which can be viewed for a donation.
