Indore Food Trail and Cycling
Indore, also known as the ‘Food Capital of India’ is a major developing hub of Madhya Pradesh. Recently recognized as the cleanest city of India under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, this city is a must visit for all food lovers. From Jalebi-Poha to Shikanji,from flavoured panipuris to amazing namkeens, there’s no shortage in varieties of good food. As we enjoy eating loads and loads of good food, some calorie burning adventure of cycling would add a different flavour to the trip!
Day 1: 23rd February, 2018 : Mumbai to Indore (Overnight Train Journey); 7:10 PM from Mumbai Central
Meet your Trikon Buddy at Mumbai Central Railway Station at 6:45 PM. Board Avantika Express, enjoy your train journey! The food hogging begins right away, as you enjoy the best food at the station stops as well!
Day 2: 24th February, 2018 : Explore the city, fulfill your appetites!
On reaching Indore, check-in to your hotel, freshen up. Let your hunger grow until we leave for breakfast. Poha-jalebis, kachoris and samosas, all known dishes but with unknowingly yummy taste.
Immerse yourself into history a little as we visit the Rajwada, until you are ready for your next feast – Lunch.
With the amount of food we expect you to eat, post lunch retreat back to the rooms, relax for a while and chill, playing games. Open up the namkeen packets you shopped, since we would be going out late for dinner.
Arguably, the best food street of India, SarafaRatri Market, a jewellery market in the day (That’s where the name comes from!), is as busy as Crawford Market of Mumbai! The only difference being, this market sells only FOOD! Huge crowds gather to celebrate food on each day, irrespective of it being weekdays or otherwise. Happy Hogging!
This would mark the end of our day!
Day 3: 25th February, 2018 : Cycling; Some More Food ; Indore to Mumbai (Overnight Train Journey)
We begin our last day in Indore with some adventure. We roll out onto the streets early in the morning on cycles! We ride onto the highway, just outside the city towards Ralamandal Wildlife Santuary. Not abode many species of animals, but is a quiet and wonderful place for nature lovers. On completion of our ride, we eat some well deserved brunch, followed by a famous and filling lassi. As we pick our bags up, we head to the station to board the train.
Day 4: 26th February, 2018 : Arrival at Mumbai Central by 6:10 AM.
Time to get back home! Trip concludes with happy memories!
