Travelling in India is a fascinating experience. Exploring the diversity of India through majestic mountain ranges, lush green plains, and golden sands of beaches can work like therapy; in fact, the best way to escape the hustle of city life and unwind.
And what better way to explore our beautiful country than hitting the roads! Road trips are ideal to explore the unknown. It allows you to customise your itinerary however you want and have the freedom to visit places you want to.
Here is a list of best road trips in India that you should take to take a break from your monotonous life and quench your thirst for travel.
Delhi to Manali
There’s nothing better than taking road trips from Delhi. The breathtaking views and the adrenaline rush of driving away from the crowded highways from Delhi to the mountainous roads in Manali. A Delhi-Manali road trip has lots to offer – there is nothing better than driving through winding mountainous roads and picturesque valleys with the sound of a hustling river. After a long, scenic drive, make sure you stay over at SaffronStays The Amlyn, Manali offering a complete view of the Himalayan range and river Beas or at SaffronStays Kesar Villa, Manali, surrounded by fruit orchards & flora. After a long road trip, you can wipe away your exhaustion in the hot tub of this stunning homestay. At night, you can also enjoy great food by the bonfire.
Chandigarh to Shimla to Kasauli
If you have an ever-wandering mind that needs to plunge into the unknown, you should undoubtedly take a road trip through the Chandigarh-Shimla-Kasauli route. It’s a journey quite breathtaking, starting from the base of the Himalayas through the mountain roads to the town of Kasauli. If there’s one thing you will never run out of in the hills, it is the incredible views. The divine natural beauty in every nook and corner here is truly awe-inspiring.
While you travel incessantly, make sure you call it a day at SaffronStays Hardy’s Hideaway, Shimla. This home will give you access to the beauty of local delicacies and a chance to experience the mountains for what they are, i.e. calm and peaceful. You can also spend some time meditating in a special meditation room at this home.
Delhi to Mussoorie
A holiday in the hills is incomplete without visiting Mussoorie. A road trip from Delhi to this hill town is one of the best vacation places in India to enjoy a relaxed holiday while discovering the splendours of nature, culture and religion. This hill station also has abundant adventure activities you can make the most of on your visit. However, if you want to unwind in luxurious surroundings, we recommend booking a private villa like SaffronStays Maison Calme, Mussoorie, amidst the magnificent mountains is a perfect choice. This 2-bedroom home surrounded by natural beauty and gorgeous landscapes will see you leaving with a refreshed mind and body. Every time you dream of a mountain getaway from Delhi, this is one home you will want to come back to.
Delhi to Nainital to Bhimtal

With jaw-dropping valleys, snow-capped hills, lakeside treks and adventure sports to indulge in, a trip here will definitely steal your heart. Plan your exciting itinerary and make the best of your vacation as you head to some gorgeous cottages and homestays amidst nature. Our top pick in the famous hill station of India would be SaffronStays Fourest: a set of 8 pet-friendly cottages with lush greenery around, perfect for couples, small families and large groups.
