Hello,

I'm planning on a budget trip to Mandu during the long weekend in August (13-15). I have a few queries:

1: This seems to be a good time to visit Mandu. Would it be crowded?
2: I'm planning to stay at the dorms in the MPTDC Malwa Retreat. They cost Rs 200 per night. Are they any good? Has anyone been there personally?
3: I've read that bicycles are available for hire. Is it feasible?
4: I'd be coming from Mumbai by the sleeper bus service to Indore. Is it feasible to get off on the highway somewhere near Dhamnod where the road forks off to Mandu or is Indore the best place?
5: Again, I also plan to proceed to Maheshwar later. Are there direct connections? Or even to Dhamnod, from where Maheshwar is closeby?

Thanks,
-Kapil

You should book accommodation right now, else miss on it...

Never tried to find one... Hence, no information

You may tell bus staff to drop you at a suitable place so that you could get a connection. They would be the best guide...

There is a bus or two for Maheshwar. You may inquire locally.
