Travel tips

There are no buses between Orchha and Khajuraho. You need to go to Jhansi first then catch a bus (six hours, 6am to 2pm) from there as Jhansi–Khajuraho buses tend not to stop for you if you wait on the side of the highway. Taxis to Khajuraho cost at least Rs2300.

The best time to visit  Orchha is from October to April.
