Book flights to Bhopal

Bhopal is the capital of Madhya Pradesh in central India. It's known as the "City of Lakes" due to the upper and lower lakes that provide recreation and drinking water. The city is located on a plateau at an average elevation of 500 meters, so it enjoys a milder climate than the hotter regions of India. Temperatures range from highs in the mid-30s Celsius (around 95 degrees Fahrenheit) in the summer to lows in the mid-teens Celsius (around 55 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter. Bhopal offers a mix of historical and modern experiences. You can visit historical sites like the Bhopal Fort, built in the 18th century, or explore the lakeside palaces. The city also has several museums, including the Tribal Art Museum and the Madhya Pradesh Archaeology Museum. For a contemporary experience, check out the Van Vihar National Park, a wildlife sanctuary where you can spot animals like deer, leopards, and sloth bears.
