Did a trip to Khajuraho last weekend from Delhi, as we were organizing a Conference cum Leisure trip for a Corporate for a group of about 60 people. Took the morning flight on Friday from IG domestic by Air India. It had rained a lot on Thursday in Delhi and the Cab driver of Easy Cabs was telling me that it took about 3 hours on Thurs to reach the Airport from Patel Nagar(normal time 1 hr). Well I alomost missed my flight because of traffic jams starting from Delhi Cantt till the Airport and probably got saved because the flight was late, I reached just about 25 mins before the scheduled departure. The flight was via Varanasi and it took about 2.5 hrs to reach Khajuraho. On reaching the small airport, the taxi from the hotel, Usha Bundela, was there to pick me up. The hotel is just 3 k from the Airport, infact all hotels( six in total) are all within 6 k, so it is very convenient. You can take an auto or even a rickshaw to reach the hotel..
Next morning was dedicated to the Conference while I had a look at other hotels in the vicinity like Ramada, Clarks, Taj and Radisson. In the evening we visited the beautiful Raneh falls about 20 km from Khajuraho on river Ken, Famous for their seasonal waterfalls and rock formations, the attraction here is a five-km long, 100-ft deep canyon of crystalline granite in shades of pink, red and gray. Also closeby is the Panna Wildlife National Park(closed till 1st October) known for the Tiger, leopard, wolf, gharial, chinkara etc.
