Comment Off 46 Views

Amidst the bustling sounds and busy traffic of the cities, there is always that one weekend when you can tag your friends and family along for a quick trip. In this short and precise post, we will try to discover the best places you can visit for a short duration from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore.

Major destinations from Delhi

In terms of variety and options, Delhi people probably have the most number of choices. For a spiritual experience, Mathura, Vrindavan, Haridwar and Rishikesh come off as the best options, while nature lovers can choose for Nainital, Lansdowne, and Mussoorie. Although weekend getaways from New Delhi would mean nearby places that can be covered in a journey of three to four hours, you can probably add a couple of days more and make time for places like Jaipur, Ranikhet and Dhanaulti. Car services are available in plenty, and if you are taking your own vehicle, make sure to take a note of all the current routes and stock the right things for a safe journey, especially in and around hills.

Major destinations from Mumbai

Mumbai might not offer as variety as Delhi, but for nature lovers, there are some amazing locations. People often think of Lonavla and Khandala for a quick trip, although there are many hidden gems that you may want to explore. For a quick trip, places like Panchgani, Ganpatipule and Keechakadara are worthy, and if you are just looking for a day’s experience, Matheran is a good choice. You can also opt to go for an extended trip of Ajanta and Ellora caves, but make sure to avoid the summer peak time around May, which may make it hard to explore. Of course, Mumbai is the closest to Goa as compared to other metros, making it a year-around choice.
