  1. Jam Gate, it is named after the village ‘Jam’ and is the Gateway to Malwa Plateau, & hence was of strategic importance in earlier times. One sees a magnificent panoramic view of the underlying Nimar plains from here. You can use the stair case to go on top of it and see the humongous view which will blow your mind. Then how can you forget to click selfies boss! Prefer visiting this place when the weather is a bit cold otherwise the heat of Nimar region will kill your vibes and this is 18Kms from Choral Dam.

  1. Maheshwar, Based on the banks of the River Narmada, this gorgeous town is largely referred to as the temple town of Madhya Pradesh. It also holds a lot of mythological and historical importance given the fact that it has found a mention in the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata.This was the capital of Rani Ahilyabai Holkar’s province, Holkar. She beautified the city with many buildings and public works, the Maratha architecture and this city was also home to her extravagant palace. Maheshwar is renowned majorly for its production of Maheshwari sarees, which makes this place a paradise for shopaholics. We reached Maheshwar around 2:30pm and were really hungry. So we went to Narmada Retreat Resort by MP tourism for having our lunch. The pricing is quite reasonable and service is fast and taste of food is really goooood :D! Places to visit in Maheshwar are Holkar fort, Temples inside, Narmada Ghat and shopping some maheshwari sarees

We left Maheshwar at 5:50 pm and reached Indore around 7:30pm, back to base and we hired a cab which costed Rs.1800 and miscellaneous money in food was hardly Rs.1500. Our 1 day getaway trip costed not more than Rs. 3200. “A paisa vasool trip!!!”
