Getting to Sambhavna
Bhopal is split in half by two lakes: the large Upper Lake and the small Lower Lake. The boundary between the Upper Lake and the Lower Lake is what separates Old Bhopal from New Bhopal. Sambhavna is located in Old Bhopal.

Sambhavna is in between two well-known areas of Bhopal: DIG Bungalow and Qazi Camp. Neither of these places are landmarks, but using these key words will help identify the location for most rickshaw and taxi drivers.
By road once in Bhopal
To get to the clinic, ask an auto rickshaw driver to take you to ‘Sambhavna Aspitaal’ in Bafna Colony. Some rickshaw drivers may know where this is and won’t need directions. For those who do, Bafna Colony is on Berasia Road after Qazi Camp and behind the ‘People’s Hospital’ on the right side of the road.
When you first arrive in Bhopal Sambhavna staff can arrange to have someone pick you up (especially if you are arriving late at night). Please let people there know in advance when you will be arriving in Bhopal.
For information about booking a train to and from Bhopal visit Indian Railways.
When arriving in Bhopal, be sure to get off at ‘Bhopal’ station. There is a second station called ‘Hahibganj’ which is far away from the clinic. It is best to exit the station from the platform #6 side rather than the platform #1 side because it is closer to the clinic. Auto-rickshaw rides should not cost more than 40 Rs.
Note: Both New Delhi and Mumbai have special tourist train booking offices, as do a number of other cities around India (though not Bhopal). Tourists can usually book trains the day of their departure (see the Indian railways website for more details). In Bhopal be sure to book your departure in advance as sometimes trains are sold out. Rachna or Sathyu can put you in touch with a travel agent in case you need one.
The airport is further away, about a 25-minute rickshaw ride. If your luggage fits in a rickshaw we recommend you take this instead of a taxi because it is cheaper for you and it is easier for rickshaws to drive on the small roads of Bafna Colony. Flights are available to Bhopal from some major Indian cities.
