To reach Lateri
It is much easier to reach Lateri from Bhopal than from Vidisha, on account of better roads and more frequent buses plying between Bhopal and Lateri than Vidisha and Lateri. It takes about 3 or 4 hours by a public transport bus to reach Lateri from Bhopal. These buses are available at Putli Ghar bus stand(earlier Berasia bus stand), Bhopal. The nearest railway station is Ganj Basoda, 75 kilometres east of Lateri, which lies on the main Mumbai-Delhi, Delhi-Chennai railway route. For a person coming from Delhi, the best train to take is Hazrat Nizamuddin- Habibganj Bhopal Express which leaves Delhi at 9 O’clock in night and reaches Ganj Basoda at 6 in the morning. Thereafter, one has to take a bus from here to Lateri, which is about 2 hour drive,or one can arrange taxi very easily from here.
