I'm hoping to go to Chhattisgarh for a couple of weeks soon, but I haven't been able to come up with any leads for drivers/guides for my needs. I want to visit rural/village areas, plus some of the tribal areas. Any suggestions, for driver or itinerary tips?

Hello

It's getting late here so no detailed suggestions at the moment. You may want to look at my trip report for this region: http://www.indiamike.com/india/off-t...antak-t156117/. There's a detailed travel information (hotels, guide, etc) that I used at the end.

Perhaps if you form a rough-cut itinerary, I'd be glad to fine tune it.

It's a great part of the country -enjoy your trip!

Thank you for your responses. Shakeelrzv2011, I have contacted one of the companies you recommended. And Vaibhav arora, I have reread your detailed account (I had skimmed before, but missed the contact information at the end). So I am working up a possible itinerary for your consideration. Many thanks.

itinerary, driver , guide for chhattisgarh

well chhattisgarh has a lot to offer when it comes to rural and tribal aspects. You can very well cover the major tribal areas in the time frame that you have thought of. Bastar region, to the south of capital city of Raipur is obviously a tribal heartland where you can find lot of tribes and colorful markets. Everybody talks only about bastar when it comes to tribal tours in chhattisgarh. But you can also think about visiting the northern and north western parts of chhattisgarh where again you will find very interesting tribes and communities. For example you can visit the bhoramdeo region in Kawardha district, about 130 kms to the north west of raipur which has some of the purest baiga tribes and you can also have the option of homestays in this region. So, you can think about landing in raipur and then either first driving to bastar for 6-7 nights and then coming back to raipur to visit the baigas at Kawardha for about 4 nights. if you want i can also chalk out a rough itinerary for you.
