On the Road Again: 5 Road Trip Destinations We Love

Editors posted on 10 March

We all love Delhi and all the craziness that comes with it, but there comes a point in every city dweller’s life where you just want to get away from all the grind. And what better way to do it than to load up a gaddi with your favourite people and set off into the wild! Here are some of our favourite road trips, so pick one and start planning.

Neemrana

The ancient town of Neemrana is one of the most popular picks among Delhi peeps. We love the Neemrana Fort Palace and Neemrana Hill Fort – Kesroli. We highly recommend staying at either property.

The Fort Palace is a heritage property located in a quaint little village, and they’ve done a brilliant job of restoring the fort. The rooms are simple, yet beautiful, and it has a massive swimming pool as well as a spa to unwind at. The Hill Fort is located on a hillock and while this resort isn’t as big as its Fort Palace counterpart, it’s more classic and earthy.
