Orchha

Getting there & around

Tempos (Rs 10) ply the 18km journey to the Jhansi bus stand; autorickshaws charge Rs 150 for the same journey. Coming from Khajuraho, you can ask the bus driver to drop you off at the Orchha turn-off on the National Hwy 9km east of Jhansi, though the autorickshaw drivers here demand high prices.

Taxis to Khajuraho cost Rs 1500, to Gwalior Rs 1200 and to Agra Rs 2700. For Khajuraho, catch a tempo or autorickshaw into Jhansi and pick up a bus. If you’re willing to risk the bus being full, wait for it 9km away on the National Hwy.

AR Tours & Travels (9993263100; Tikamgarh Rd), based at Cyber Café, can organise transport.

Orchha is easily crossed on foot or by bike. Raju Bikes (Lakshmi Narayan Temple Rd) hires out rickety cycles (per hour/day Rs 10/50).
