This time when we were planning for a trip, we had decided to visit a Reserve Forest. We ultimately finalised Kanha National Park. The journey would take us to Jabalpur and so we decided to visit "dhuandhar and Marble rocks" too. We decided to spend a day at Jabalpur and when we went for booking at the MP Tourism office in Delhi we were suggested by the official there to stay at their resort- MAIKAL RESORT at Bargi, and I must thank the individual for suggesting the same.
We drove from Jabalpur station to Mailkal resort whihc is about 20 km away. The road takes you through tribal villages, the condition of the road is mostly fine though narrow, but there are no street lights. So travel till the sun is up. The journey is picturesque.Once we reached, the check in was smooth, there is ample parking. As we were ushered into the room, I was struck by the stunning view form the room. There is the beautiful lake ( reservoir) of the dam and the balconies of the room offers tremendous view of the lake and the dam. Its calm and serene and the light blue waters of the lake offers a breathtaking view. The rooms are large with a dressing area and the food and services are very good. We also took a walk on the dam, the next morning. They have provisions for boating and there is a 5 hour cruise also with food and music on board.
I would recommend this resort to anyone planning to spend a day or two in or around Jabalpur.
