The National capital of Delhi is more or less considered as the epicentre of India. The city is filled to the brim with people who make the city their home in hopes of achieving their dreams. But dreams do include weekend getaways as well, don’t they? Here is a list of handpicked road trips that you can commence from Delhi. These are some of the best road trips in India.

Weekend Getaways from Delhi

Road trip from Delhi to Morni

The Road trip from Delhi to Morni is an absolute delight. Morni is a hill station that is located in Haryana and is a couple of hours drive away from Delhi. Morni boasts of a scenic environment, dense forests, and a lake bang in the centre of it all making it a perfect weekend getaway package. A lot of people from Delhi visit Morni to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

It is also very famous with the adventure junkies as the mountain ranges prove to be one of the best for trekking, boating, cycling etc.

You do not have to worry about food as you can find plenty of dhabas on your way at Ambala, Karnal, Zirakpur etc.

Road trip to Mathura and Vrindavan

If you want to get away from the city for the weekend and yet go to a place where your parents and grandparents are going to enjoy, where would it be? Mathura and Vrindavan are one of the best places for a spiritual weekend getaway from Delhi. The historical city of Mathura invites you with a warm welcome and tells the beautiful story of lord Krishna. If it is your thing, you can join the bhajans and folklore in praise of the lord.

The month of August, during Janmashtami is one of the best times to visit these holy cities and absorb the festive spirit. Do not miss out on the Chappan Bhog Prasad and variety of butter sweets. If you want to experience the best of Holi celebrations, this is the place to be.

A Road trip to one of the seven wonders

Yes, you already must know which is the place that I am going to be talking about. Agra is one of the most popular weekend getaway destinations from Delhi and is frequented by the localities to visit the famous Taj Mahal. Get on the Yamuna expressway and the grand roads and zoom your way to Agra whilst catching a glimpse of the famous Buddh International F1 circuit.

Taj Mahal is not the only reason why one would want to visit Agra. It is famous for its marbles, its handicrafts and most of all its sweets. On your visit do not miss out on trying the Agra ka petha, Bidaai, Jilebi etc.

If you are daring enough you can also visit one of the most haunted places in India called as Bhangarh. The best time to visit this part of the country is anywhere from February to March. Make sure to bring your camera along with you.

The Kuchesar Fort is an 18th-century mud fort that has since been restored. It has been restored by the Neemrana group of hotels who are providing this authentic experience. The entire drive and the getaway is a perfect example of an authentic UP experience.
