1. Delhi – Ghaziabad – Kuchesar Mud Fort

HolidayIQ Traveller Sabyasachi Mitra says, “Kuchesar Mud Fort is a good getaway for people in Delhi desperate for a break but not having enough leave.” Kuchesar is a heritage village located in the Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh, as is perfect for a day tour from Delhi. Kuchesar is famous for the mud fort built by the Jat rulers here. Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Nishi Java, “Most of the drive was good. My suggestion is to have Google maps handy as it proved very useful for us.”

Distance: 100 km

Route: NH24

2. Vrindavan

HolidayIQ Traveller Shubham Juneja says, “Delhi to Vrindavan is around 140 km that will take you 3 hr to reach depending on season, timing. Road is very good and I travelled via Faridabad to Mathura Road. There is a alternate route via Noida-Expressway also. Toll on this route is around Rs.100. There is no problem as such in the route. I prefer travelling early morning. So, I started at 6 and reached there around 9.15. Then we visited Iscon, Banke Bihari ji, Radha Valab, Radha Daamodar and around 12, I was ready to get back to Delhi.”

Distance: 142 km

Route: NH 2

3. Neemrana Fort Palace

HolidayIQ Traveller Priyanka Rajwar says, “The drive to Neemrana is a mixed ride, the highway drive is good until you reach the turn to Neemrana. But everything fades once you reach the fortress, it rejuvinates you and then you are in to explore the narrow passages and discovering new routes inside the fortress.” This palace has 7 wings built over 12 layers tiered into a hill, and thus it is one of the most unique day trips from Delhi. Here you’ll find hanging gardens, two swimming pools, ayurvedic spa and also India’s first zip line.

Distance: 122 km

Route: Delhi – Jaipur Highway

HolidayIQ Traveller Ranit Das says, “Great road, car moves at a speed of 100 km per hour. We totally enjoyed the ride. It took almost 2 hrs 30 mins to reach the destination. You will find the famous Buddh circuit in your way. One tip, if you plan to return to New Delhi within 24 hours then buy toll for both sides.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Vishakha, “There are multiple routes from Delhi to Agra, but we took the expensive but the fastest route to Agra – Yamuna Expressway. The expressway starts from Noida and ends at Agra. The toll for the entire journey is Rs. 320 for cars. The roads are more or less empty and the car can easily cruise at a speed of 150 kmph. My own car reached upto a whopping 210 kmph. But we controlled the speed to avoid risking a tyre burst. Although there is no need to take a stop, there are food plazas on the way to take a break or refreshments.”

Distance: 214 km

Route: Taj Express Highway | Yamuna Expressway

5. Damdama Lake

HolidayIQ Traveller Jitendra Singh says, “It’s a wonderful place surrounded by the Aravalli Hills. The place has a big lake where visitors can enjoy boating. It is the best place to hang out with friends. The view of lake during sunrise, sunset and cloudy day is wonderful.”

Distance: 50 km

Route: NH 8

6. Murthal

HolidayIQ Traveller Shilpa says, “Smooth drive with toll tax stop on the way. There are plenty of food options at Murthal. Road conditions are good which lets you drive comfortably to go to and fro.” The first place that hits our mind when it comes to road trips around Delhi has to be Murthal! A long drive across the busy yet wide roads of Delhi, while the cool wind caresses you and the stomach is tempted for a gastronomic ride, you know your destination has to be Murthal. Try Gulshan da Dhaba!

Distance: 60 km

Route: NH1

7. Jaipur

HolidayIQ Traveller Rita says, “The highway is very well maintained and it takes about four hours of travel time, minus the breaks if you are driving at a speed of 60-80 km and are not in a hurry to reach. The view is quite good and there are plenty of rest stops on the way as well as petrol stations.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Vikrant, “I planned for Delhi to Jaipur drive with friends and it was a great fun. We started early at around 7 am from Delhi to avoid any traffic in Delhi. And once we reached Jaipur highway it was a delight to drive. I drove the entire journey and it took us around 3 hours 30 minutes to reach the pink city, Jaipur.”

Distance: 268 km

Route: NH 8

    I live in Delhi and always wish to search for the places where I can make a one day trip from Delhi. This blog is a great help to me. I have been to one of the above mentioned places Neemrana Fort Palace. I was lucky that I book a zip lining adventure at Neemrana Fort Palace and got a free entry to the fort as well. The food was awesome and there I saw a blend of traditional architecture with all modern amenities.

      Thank you for sharing, Jennifer! What are the evenings at Neemrana like? I am looking for a relaxed evening with my girlfriend, just sipping beer while watching the sunset.
