Hi bruty... I am in the same boat but looking at the weekend before August. Seems monsoon makes uttarakhand non advisable due to landslides and other issues.

I would add 'sonapani' to the list. Its about 8 hours away. But a peaceful place. Not a touristy place. Go there if you want to spend time with family and your own self. You can walk around, trek and read a book but you can't do shopping!

Here's the link:

I went in April and considering the landscape - although the roads are tarred - monsoon may not be best time to be driving to this place.

Bumping this thread after a long time

Fellow BHPians,

My next holiday period is about to start in a couple of weeks and I wanted to get some ideas on where I can plan my next getaway from Delhi. I will be travelling with my wife and my humble Ecosport. The requirements I have are:

1. Good weather - One of the major factors
2. Scenic
3. Less crowd
4. Decent accommodation (borderline luxury would be ideal)
5. 6-8 hour drive (can extend this to 10 if needed)

I can spare around 5-6 days for this getaway. I am looking for a relaxing holiday so not interested in trekking and rafting. The options that come to my mind are:

1. Nainital
2. Mussorie
3. Corbett
4. Shimla

Any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Saurabh

Nainital - The Grand Hotel. Opt for a first floor verandah room.
Mussoorie - Padmini Niwas, opt for Room number 11 (private garden).
Corbett - not recommended. Hot and humid.
Shimla - The only place with scenic views and where your humble Ecosport will be parked within hotel premises is The Apple Blossom, Fagu or Hotel Hatu, Narkanda. Both are nice enough properties and serve good fare.

I just posted in the Dehradun/Mussoorie thread but thought I'd post it here to get a wider range of options.

I am looking for a quick weekend trip from Delhi. We've been to Shimla and Jaipur so currently considering Lansdowne or Dehradun/Mussoorie. We can leave at 4pm on Friday, or 4am on Saturday but have to be back by 10pm Sunday. How is the route to Lansdowne, and Dehradun; and how long would it take for either.

Since we are ideally looking for a 6-7 hr/one day travel, can we also consider Kasauli (HP)?

Thank you!

UP is not safe for night driving. It will take you about 8 hours for Mussoorie and you could also do Kasauli in the same length of time. Himachal routes are much safer for night driving.
Take your pick, but if it is Mussoorie avoid driving at night.

Thanks; any idea about Lansdowne? Road condition and driving distance, I mean.

Not driving at night implies leaving on Sat morning, which means we spend most of the weekend driving.

The distance is just about 250 kms. However the road till Bijnaur is very good but from Bijnaur to Kotdwar has a lot of potholes. You will also need to take a small detour from Najibabad to Kotdwar due to damaged flyover at Najibabad.

The road from Kotdwar to Lansdowne is ok but narrow. You must drive there only if you have sufficient experience of driving in hills. Do visit Tarakeshwar temple if you are going there.

Mussoorie would be a good bet. Don't go through the Meerut - Muzaffarnagar - Roorkee route. In Addition to being a little unsafe it's also bad, full of potholes and badly marked diversions. Try the Delhi - Karnal - Yamunanagar - Paonta Sahib - Dehradun route. Longer by about 50 km but faster with good roads all along. I recently travelled on it. This earlier post of mine may help http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post3451595 (Delhi - Mussorie: tips & suggestions please!)


For what to see and do , this post may be of some use
