JAGDALPUR
ABOUT THE PLACE

Predominantly a tribal region, Jagadalpur was the capital of the erstwhile princely state of Bastar. A little distance from Jagadalpur city are the incomparable Chitrakote and Tirthgarh waterfalls which are especially enjoyable in the rainy season.

HOW TO REACH

Jagdalpur, the district headquarters is 250 km from Bhadrachalam in the south; it is 300 km from Visakhapatnam in the east and 300 km from Raipur in the north. There are excellent roads to Bastar that pass through verdant forestland.

Jagdalpur is linked to Visakhapatnam by a broad-gauge electrified railway. A passenger train operates, often with a chair car coach. The train passes through breathtaking ghats and tunnels.

The nearest airports are Raipur and Visakhapatnam. Raipur has daily connectivity with the major cities.


BEST TIME TO VISIT

Monsoon is the time if you want to see the waterfalls in their full glory. Otherwise, winter is the best time to get around.
