The Hanuwantiya organizes the country’s largest water carnival every year. It’s also called Switzerland of MP as the water carnival is sufficient enough to give you Switzerland vibes. In fact, it’s got Swiss tents, houseboats, and private cottages.
In addition, the regal boats are specially ordered from the most beautiful country in Europe, Italy, to set the Italian atmosphere and give the actual vibes and pleasure of adventurous activities.
There are more than 15 activities in Jal Mahotsav involving zip liners, hot air balloons, and parasailing.
To add a touch of culture and spark, cultural nights are also included in the event where tourists across the country get to experience the cultural program every evening.
The Jal Mahotsav is a water carnival event that started way back in 2016. The event received immense appreciation and was liked by most tourists, making it highly popular and in-demand among tourists, and since then it has been held every year.
However, due to the surge in COVID cases, the event was paused, but it got back into motion in 2020 following strict adherence to COVID protocols.
An abundance of activities are organized in the event involving aerial and water activities, making it a hugely successful event in the country.
Besides, kite flying, water spots, volleyball, and various other activities are a huge hit.
Since it’s also been called the “mini Goa of MP,” you will find cruises and motorboats. The tourist corporation of Madhya Pradesh organizes a motor boat club and a water sports club.
Evidently, the corporation spends more than INR 8 crore on organizing it on a massive scale while making it a super fun and adventurous hub.
As Jal Mahotsav itself implies water sports activities, it primarily focuses on providing the best water activities covering snorkeling, motor boating, zorbing, surfing, jet skiing, scuba diving, and parasailing.
Besides, you do get an abundance of other adventurous land activities such as zip lining, kireflying, archery, wall climbing, paintball, volleyball, riding super daring ATVs, and kite flying.
Also, there are a few amazing aerial activities such as parasailing covering both water and land, hot-air ballooning, paramotoring.
It’s a great spot for indulging in bird watching as it’s considered home to many birds and animals.
When doing bird watching you can spot different kinds of birds and animals such as black drongo, flameback, purple sunbird, coppersmith, bay-backed shrike, black-shouldered kite, white-bellied drongo, leopards, deer, and many more.
Make sure you carry a pair of binoculars with you.

How about spending a beautiful night in the teak forest or perhaps climbing up to take a 180-degree view of the island? Isn’t it astounding?
When exploring the island, you will find a host of beautiful tents, which will compel you to pitch them to spend a night stargazing the resplendent sky.
The view will definitely take you down into a world of paradise. Also, the island is quite safe for a staycation as it’s managed by the forest department.
The adventure of this event is endless. Besides exploring different adventurous activities and island hopping, you can also get yourself de-cluttered and de-stressed by indulging in spas, delicacies, and yoga sessions. If you’re a shopping freak, you’d love to shop at the craft bazaar.
