All Of Delhi’s Secrets And Stories Will Come Out At These Offbeat Walks

Editors posted on 4th February

Walks are boring. Walks mean early morning grogginess. Walks are a re-run of history lessons. Did we read your thoughts right?

We know we did. This is exactly why we embarked on a mission to find curated walks that subscribe to none of these stereotypes. You can chase butterflies in the dark. Go hunting for food in a garden. You can plant trees with bae. Basically, you can have a lot of fun while you're at it. Just take your pick and get ready to see the side of Delhi you never knew existed. Soak it all in.

Parents nagging you to fend for yourself? Go give this foraging food experience a shot. You stroll around Lodhi Garden’s untamed corners and nearby nurseries in search of edible produce. These botanical extracts and rare finds are then at the mercy of the super-talented chefs of Perch, Khan Market who turn them into dishes. Hopefully, after this spell, you’ll know how to put those locally sourced things to better use. Or not. You can just enjoy the culinary spread the Perch chefs create for you.

You’re going to be in a group in a shrubby forest where moths and butterflies of all colours, shapes and sizes will flutter around. Forest eee… spooky and fascinating, right?
