5 Overnight Driving Destinations from Delhi
The arrival of one long weekend and a quick getaway is all that is on the mind of a Delhiite, and it’s natural. After all, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore the amazing destinations that reside close to this busy metropolitan city. We pass weeks, even months in the tedious office job for such a weekend window where a trip seems just a means like a car on rent away and fits right into place.
The only question remains at this point is where to head. Not wasting that extra day that you so preciously stole, an overnight drive sounds just about right. And Delhi is one of those generous cities that give you plenty of travel options in this regard from hillocks and crystal clear rivers to far spread deserts. Here’s a list of nearby destinations from Delhi that will get you going!
A smooth 2-hour drive on Yamuna expressway will take you into this beautiful city, which is not only home to one of the 7 Wonders of the World, Taj Mahal but will also give you a closer peek into the culturally and architecturally rich India. Enjoy the work and grandeur of Red fort that resides at few km from Taj Mahal or visit the nearby Fatehpur Sikri to explore more of such architectural wonders. An SUV on rent will come handy if you plan to include a visit to the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary with family, while in Agra.
Bollywood has always been all over the beauty of the ‘Pink City’ and those who have ever visited the place knows that filmmakers are not exaggerating. The beautiful 7-hour drive on Delhi-Jaipur highway continues with the mesmerizing pink lanes and corners of Jaipur that are mostly spread in the commercial part of the city. Indulge in the tales from the past as you enter the grand Amer Kila or get star struck by the unique structures of Hawa Mahal, Jaigarh Fort or Nahargarh Fort. The traditional Rajasthani meal experience at Choki Dhani is also not to be missed!
For those who wish to breathe in some of the fresh Himachal air during their weekend getaway, a 3-hour drive to Chandigarh comes as an appealing option. This mesmeric city resides near the extremely pretty Himachal hills of Shimla and Kasauli, giving you the great opportunity to use the extra stretch of your long weekend to explore multiple options. It connects to Delhi through the GT road and will give you a dip right into the wealthy and cheerful Punjabi culture, which is famous for its beauty, hospitality, Gurdwaras, Havelis and lip-smacking food. For the overnight drive you may select a sedan, Ford Figo to take you around the city.
Shimla and Kasauli are not the only hilly options to explore near Delhi. At a distance of 7.5-hour drive from the city of Delhi lies the prettiest hill station Mussoorie that boasts beautiful waterfalls along with a versatile bustling local market that will serve you local souvenirs as well as traditional cuisines. Not to miss the presence of Robbers Cave and restaurants in Dehradun that are present just before the breathtaking 1.5 hour stretch of Mussoorie, which will be comfortably traversed in your chosen SUV on rent.
Situated at the union of River Ganga and Chandrabagha is yet another popular getaway from Delhi. Rishikesh is a well-known youth spot famous for its adventure sports activities and at the same time a perfect family holiday destination for being closer to the holy city of Haridwar. The scenic beauty of Rishikesh lies just at a distance of 6-7 hour drive from Delhi. Look for a car rental service provider, choose a perfectly equipped car hit the roads.
