If you and your squad have been dreaming of the ultimate road trip, it’s time to make that dream a reality with this handy guide!

OUT OF DELHI

AMRITSAR, PUNJAB

THE JOURNEY: 475 km; 8.5 hours driving time; halt at Chandigarh

GET GOING: Start early and take the route via Chandigarh. The city makes a great spot to rest and grab lunch. While you’re here, visit the city’s famous Rock Garden, known for its interesting art and layout. Chandigarh to Amritsar is a four-hour drive, filled with beautiful views.

ABOUT AMRITSAR: The perfect mix of history, culture and food, Amritsar has something for everyone. Start your day by seeking blessings at the Golden Temple. Get a glimpse into history by visiting Jallianwala Bagh. Then, head over to the Wagah Border to witness the closing of the gate ceremony. A trip here would be incomplete without bingeing on all its delicious eats, so be sure to sink your teeth into kulchas, chhole and jalebis, all washed down with a glass of creamy, delicious lassi.

NAINITAL, UTTARAKHAND

THE JOURNEY: 310 km; 7 hours driving time; halt at Moradabad

GET GOING: Planning a road trip out of Delhi definitely has its perks— its close proximity to hill stations up north will leave you spoilt for choice. Make your first stop at Babugarh, in case you’re looking to grab a bite at a dhaba. Another stop worth making is at Moradabad, which is famous for its brass goods and handicrafts, making it the perfect place to pick up some road trip souvenirs.

ABOUT NAINITAL: If you’re looking to escape the city, Nainital is just the place to do so. Unwind at the many cafes located along Nainital Lake; grab a coffee or a cup of hot chocolate, and watch as the day turns into dusk. If you’d rather be out and about, you can also go trekking. The Naini Peak trek is particularly popular, thanks to the breathtaking views it offers. If you’re looking to add a bit of history to the mix, visit Governor’s House and St Joseph’s College, both of which are prime examples of Colonial architecture that add to Nainital’s ethereal beauty.
