How I went:

I traveled to Indore by train from Mumbai. Stayed at hotel Sunder at Indore. Left by 7 am bus to Omkareswar. You get mini busses from near the sardar patel statue very near the hotel. It is a 2.5 hr ride to omkareswar road. From there it is a half hour ride to omkareswar by another bus. Sometimes you get direct bus to omkareswar itself. Once there visited two temples there and offered prayes. There is a special entrance ticket too for Rs.100. You can also get a panda for Rs 200. From here I hired a boat with others for two people(my son too) for taking me around the island for parikrama. The boat takes you to triveni sangam and then around. There is a 200 meter stretch you may need to walk as the boat finds it very tough to go up current wit people. The entire omkareswar temple is on an island formed in the middle of Narmada river in the form of Om. After this we left for Indore.

For any need at omkareswar and guide you can call Aasish on 09424535569. he is a tall man and will be of good help. You can refer my name as ashok from Chennai.

You can get in touch with pandit Satyanarayan sharma on 07280 271256 or Nandlal Sharma 09893610409 for your pooja and dharshan needs. Pls refer my name as Ashok from Chennai.

Fix a rate before you use their services. I feel Rs 200 is in order.
