Delhi is multi-cultural and has myriad of options when it comes to sight-seeing and other attractions. However, what makes Delhi one of the most unique cities in India is its bustling streets. While it can be a joy to watch the common crowd of Delhi and take in its different vibes and aroma of the amazing food, people often want to go to peaceful destinations.
If time constraint is not allowing you to go out and explore, then here are some weekend getaway destinations that you should line up in your itinerary next.
One of the most exhilarating things about going away for short weekend getaways from Delhi is the wide variety of things that you can pursue. For instance, not only you can go trekking but also visit the famous Golden Temple in Amritsar. However, if you are looking for something unique and want to have the best view of the mountains then there is no better way to do than a cable car ride. Auli is known for its long cable car rides in entire South Asia. It is also one of the top skiing destinations in India and if you are looking for mountains and forests that are picturesque in every sense then Auli won’t disappoint you.
If you are looking for a place that is calm and doesn’t attract too many visitors then there is no better place than Lansdowne. A town in itself, it is every bit serene and offers many opportunities for adventure as well. You can either go for a stroll in the pine forest or just go for trekking and bird watching. It is an amazing weekend spot for Delhites as it is just 250 kms away. You should consider going to this amazing place after summers and do stop by the famous Bulla Park and St. Mary’s Church.
Uttarakhand is one of the few places in India which is known for its natural beauty and if you are not looking for an adventure but just a few days of relaxation by the lake then look no further than Bhimtal. The morning is extremely serene with cloud hanging low and the colour of the lake being the most surreal extravagant of nature at its best. It is at a distance of 307 km from Delhi and you can also go for boating here.
If you are a nerd when it comes to historical places then there is no better abode for you then Dausa. It is just 260 kms away from Delhi and it is ideal for couples and people who have always loved everything about history and architectural masterpieces. It has plenty of temples and mansions to keep you on your toes for the entire day. You can complete a weekend trip to this place with just Rs. 3000-4000.
