You've to go via Doon only. The Meerut road is quite bad and lots of road construction work is going on. The yamunanagar route is a bit longer but better.

Few kms from Yamunanagar towards paonta are really horrible(AFAIK from last update).
rest of the route is good
drive safe.

Personal favorite - Delhi-Karnal- Leave NH1 and take fork right just after karnal byepass - Indri -Ladwa-Yamuna Nagar-Jagadhri-Kalesar-Here cross Yamuna at barrage and then take a left along canal to power house-Right to Sahfipur-Left towards Herbetpur-Right on Paonta-delhradun road near Herbetpur. The route passes through scenic areas especially after Kalesar where you cross Yamuna using Hathnikund Barrage.

But of course you can also contnue straight at Kalesar and go Paonta Sahib and from there to Dehradoon. Here again road between Paonta and herbetpur is adjacent to canal and has lovely view.

Default Delhi to Mussoorie this weekend - but what path to choose!!

Hey guys, I'm still a newbie to team bhp, though I have one humble thread to my credit (My ICE install)

I'm planning a drive to Mussourie this Friday - amd am a little confused about the route I should take - I've only recently moved to Delhi, so I'm still figuring out the roads here. The plan to to drive more or less nostop, leaving at about 4 in the morning.

I'd be very grateful if guys familiar with this route can give me a few points. I've done a fair amount of hill driving, so that won't be an issue. My ride is a Swift petrol, I will be driving alone. I also have a GPS in the car, but it sometimes behaves michevously, and I don't want to end up making a pitstop in Kayakumari. I also should mention that my sense of direction is about as useless as a compass needle made of plastic

I'm an IT guy recently turned professional photographer, so I promise I'll put up pictures once I'm back

A little help ? I know you guys probably have better things to do but seriously, with my damn GPS and my sense of direction, I pretty sure I'll be going in the opposite direction within ten minutes of starting if you guys don't pitch in

The most frequented route is :

DELHI - GHAZIABAD - MODINAGAR - MEERUT - KHATAULI - MUZZAFARNAGAR

- SAHARANPUR - CHHUTMALPUR - DEHRADUN - MUSSOORIE!


Few Pointers to the journey:
  • Break/Rest at CHEETAL GRAND (KHATAULI)
  • Watch For Traffic Congestion in MUZAFFARNAGAR
  • Try JAIN SHIKANJI in MODINAGAR. Brilliant!

An Important Point for your trip :

If you are planning a night stay in Mussoorie or nearby towns this weekend (Oct 22 - Oct 24), ensure you have prior confirmed reservations at a hotel. While Mussoorie doesn't require prior reservation, this weekend happens to have founders' Day celebrations of two of the biggest schools in this region.

Just a suggestion
If you don't want to go state HW from MUZZAFARNAGAR continue on NH-58 till ROORKEE take a left to reach CHHUTMALPUR in a very short time and the road is good

P.S You save time passing through saharanpur (~30-40 min)

Cheers

@ sid1509, akhilesh51, ricky_1605, sanagg1 - thank you so much guys, I'd almost cancelled the drive because I had no idea of what to expect on the highways - with the info you guys have provided, I think I'm going to give this a shot Will keep you posted, thanks once again for taking the time to give a directionless soul a virtual compass You guys may wonder why the hell a guy with no sense of direction is attempting a solo drive on unknown roads and all that, but hell, I love to drive What's a wrong turn now and then?
