Orchha is beautiful in terms of architecture, we took half day to go around, if you want, you can spend entire day and reach Khajuraho in evening.
If you can spare 2 more days, try to spend 1 day extra at Khajuraho, if you are fan of Temple Architecture like me, temples are exquisite and certainly need an extra day to admire the architectural marvel. Better to hire local transport to go around, if needed.
One more extra day can be used for Panna (which is at 30 mins distance from Khajuraho.
Instead of going to Satna, stay at Panna Wild life Sanctuary
