This is a UNESCO world heritage site. Do not expect much adventure. You can go & enjoy with your family, parents & children. A kind of Picnic spot. Hilly terrain - a kind of trekking type experience.

The rock shelters host paintings of animals from more than 10000 years ago. The paintings and the site are great, but there's not much information on the painting and their significance. Some literature/guidebook provided by Archeological Survey of India would be great.

This is to walk round the caves and see the ancient paintings done on the walls but the forest is good and gives you peace.

I didn't know what to expect before I got to Bhimbetka. I had seen pictures of it all over the internet, showing various stick figures. Once I got there, it seemed like all time stood still. This was indeed a piece of time gone by.

Today we take photos and preserve them to have a look at them as we grow older and show them to generations to come. Similarly the paleolithic and neolithic civilizations had their own "Photos" if I may call them, that depict all kinds of things.

If you don't believe me, go to Bhimbetka and you will. Make sure to carry a camera. If you're going on a summer day, make sure to carry a water bottle and something to cover your head. The rocks get really hot.
