Destinations To Not Miss Out On When Taking A Road Trip From Delhi
One common thing that made Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara or Dil Chahta Hai a blockbuster hit was certainly the fun and exciting road trip that the boys took.
There is no other form of commute that can be as wild and inspirational as a road trip.
Delhi is blessed with the most stunning surroundings that are easily accessible by your car or bike. All you need to do is call up your friend, pack your bags, and head for an adventure of a lifetime.

Dharamkot, Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, India Cicked by @dharamkotstudio
Sitting just a couple of kilometers above McLeodganj and Dharamshala is a small hamlet. The beauty of this destination is not something you get to see in your everyday city life.
The narrow roads, big enough for a single car to cross at a time, the small cafes that are all sitting in one designated spot, and the surreal green shades make Dharamkot your not-so-usual spot. If markets and monasteries are not really your calling, going a few kilometers above McLeodganj wouldn’t be a bad idea.
It is best to book yourself either a homestay or a hostel when you are travelling to Dharamkot. These are available to you in abundance.
Make sure you pay a visit to Bhagsu village that is approximately 15 minutes from Dharamkot. If you are staying at the very end of this area, the point where the Triund trek commences, you are in for a treat.
Opt to travel everywhere you go in Dharamkot on foot. Trust us. It’ll be an experience like no other.
Kasol, Himachal Pradesh, India clicked by @_akanksha_
Kasol is perhaps not really an offbeat destination but it surely is a scenic spot that is further surrounded by a marvelous stash of nature’s bounty.
While Kasol will offer you an experience that is the right mix of city life amidst nature, there are some paths less taken that are located just a few minutes away. These spots are idyllic for those who are in search of getting away from brick and mortar jungles and are in search of actual ones.
Malana and Waichin Valley are two of the many that you should certainly consider visiting. These destinations will leave you speechless.
It is true that the cannabis business the core source of income for locals in these villages, but picture-perfect scenery takes the award here. Right from the point where your trek begins to the top of the spot, everything here is simply far from ordinary.
For Kasol, you can book yourselves a homestay or hostel. But for Malana or Waichin Valley, gear up for some camping!
Alisar Mahal, Alisar, Rajasthan
Famous for its Magnetic Fields Festival that usually takes place in December, Alsisar is a hidden yet royal land of Rajasthan.
It is situated in Shekhawati and is perhaps the most beautiful village that you can pay a visit to the west of Delhi. This tiny town is a world in itself.
Alsisar is surrounded by an arid semi-desert which makes it a perfect place for some enigmatic and rich photographs for your ‘gram.
The best bet to spend your days in Alsisar is by booking the most extravagant Alsisar Mahal. It’ll make you feel like royalty and you should certainly embrace every second of it.
The old town vibes, the luxurious hotel, and the extravagant architecture of this place are what leave every individual awestruck when they visit this destination.
For meat lovers, do not forget to indulge in their Laal Maas when you are there.
Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand, India clicked by @captainprice441
While it’s not exactly a few hours’ drive, it is still a destination that is worth every kilometer spent on the road. If you are in search of some tranquility and a place with the beauty that even your Sony A6600 will not be able to justify, Pithoragarh is your answer.
This mountain village is surrounded by towering snow-clad peaks, a valley covered with various shades of green, and a dense alpine forest. This place basically has everything that you drew as a kid in your art classes.
Unspoiled by commercialization, Pithoragarh is a must for those who like places a little less discovered.
A must-visit spot in this village is Soar Valley. You can find resorts. Homestays, and hostels in abundance here.
It might not be a place for foodies but it certainly is a spot for those looking to get away from mobile signals!
Pushkar, Rajasthan, India clicked by @vivekxr
Known for an extravagant celebration of the Holi festival, Pushkar is a small village in Ajmer, Rajasthan. If you are in search of an authentic and the truest Rajasthani experience, Pushkar is your treat.
You can easily think of Pushkar as a town of fairs and festivities. While it’s true that it has that old world charm oozing from every corner of the street, it is still the rose garden of Rajasthan that exports the beautiful and fragrant roses all across the globe.
The moment you enter the town of Pushkar, it will feel like you’re revisiting the mythological history. The time seems to have stopped. The architecture here is simply exquisite.
And Pushkar Lake in the city only makes the experience complete.
It is best to book yourself a hotel that was once a fort if you wish to soak in the heritage of this village of Rajasthan. Make sure you try each of the authentic dishes, they’ll take your palette on a roller coaster ride.
