Situated amid rolling hills and forests, Gondia is considered the gateway to Maharashtra from central and eastern India. Referred to as the Rice City due to the abundance of rice mills in the area, Gondia was once ruled by Gond kings, giving the place its name.
Gondia does not have its own airport. The closest airport is the Sonegaon Airport in Nagpur, which is 123km away. You could also fly into Raipur Airport in Chhattisgarh, which is 139km away.
The fastest way to get to Gondia from Mumbai is by train. There are approximately twelve trains operating on this route, the Gitanjali Express being a convenient option.
State-owned as well as private operators run bus services between Gondia and other parts of the country.
Maharashtra State Highway 249 provides connectivity with two national highways – NH 7 and NH 69. This highway passes through the Nagpur, Bhandara, and Gondia districts in Maharashtra.
