Bhainsrorgarh’s proximity to the Chambal River has resulted in a picturesque landscape dotted with small villages. A ride through the country side in an open four-by-four takes you through farms of wheat and mustard, typical villages under local governance and a tribal village which continue to live without electricity. Cruising the Chambal River in a spacious, hand rowed country boat is as much a visual treat as a tranquil experience. For anglers, Chambal offers a chance to bait the charismatic Mahseer. Fishing rods are available on request and escorts for an expedition can be arranged as well. In addition to the above there is a lot more to see and explore like waterfalls and lakes. You can also enjoy leisurely walks on the ramparts of the Fort, in the farm lands across the river and the jungles beyond.
