Will it be safe to travel by taxi from Amarkantak to Bilaspur doing day?
I am planning to visit Amarkantak in October but I could only get confirmed train tickets from Bilaspur.

Does anybody has an idea of the approximate taxi cost?

Pendra Road is the nearest rail station from Amarkantak. Pendra Road to Amarkantak distance is only approx 36 KM as per Google. Several trains are going to Pendra Road from Bilaspur. You can hire transport from Pendra Road itself which will reduce the cost & time too.

Google Maps is showing 127 km Amarkantak-Bilaspur but TripAdvisor shows 80 km.

There are some trains but none that suit us. I have to catch the 6.25 PM from Bilaspur. The Narmada Exp from Pendra Road arrives Bilaspur at 5.15 PM and tends to be late. We can not afford to miss the 6.25.,

We have to reach Bilaspur from Amarkantak.
Then at 6.25 PM we have a train from Bilaspur to Vizag.
My question is regarding the exact Amarkantak-Bilaspur road distance. Google maps says 127 km while TripAdvisor says 80 km.

The road was terrible in December 2011 when I went. The estimated drive time (due to the border of MP / CG) was about 4 hours. Train's a better bet. I was offered a free lift by some locals which I declined (on the advice of the NGO based in CG that was helping me with my travel plans)
