Default Re: Good destination around Delhi with decent roads and less tiring?

Hi Guys

have a few queries regarding the route to Chail.

1) Is going through Solan the only way possible?
2) Is the road from Solan to Chail still in the condition as shown in the video herein? If yes it could prove to be quite a pain for the suspension.

Looking forward to inputs as I'm planning a short trip to Chail.

The road does not look too bad, actually!

There is a road for Chail from Kandaghat via Sadhupul - that one is tarred and was in very good shape till Chail last year. Do not know the present state though.

Default Good destination around Delhi for a two year old?

TBHPians, I require your help.

In the first week of October, I would be travelling to Delhi with my wife and two year old daughter. Please advise me about the following:

A. A good place around Delhi with moderate weather suitable for the special needs of a two year old.

B. Good reasonable hotels to stay at the place suggested.

C. Nearby places to visit.

D. Self driving options - whether advisable?

Thanks in advance.

It would help answer your queries if you specify what kind of distance/journey time you are looking at.

Sorry lifeonwheels. Your queries will not be answered as you have not told us about your last year journey.

Sorry about going off topic

Thanks AKP. Will find out more about this road.

@anonymous. I know mate but it's just that I didn't click pictures which would be an enjoyable experience to look at and nor did I take up any new route or experience something which could come in handy for any future travelling member. BTW last time I went to Kasauli and the place was quite good for a weekend stay.

I think it would be Agra or Jaipur. Please suggest some good reasonable places to stay and to eat.

TBHPians, Please help.

Relatives visiting us from abroad. So planning a quick getaway for the grand family (17-18 members with Kids) outing around Delhi.

We want to leave Delhi at around 6:00PM on Friday (19th August) and back by Monday morning around 9:00AM (22nd August).

Please advise us a decent place as per the following needs:

1. Should be around 2-2.5 hours driving distance from Delhi.

2. A semi-luxury resort with good food and good stay.

3. Some playing space (Lawn) and TV for kids.

Thanks in advance.

Hi SS-Traveller, I reached out to the link that you have given "travel.webshots" and almost decided to take my family there in the first week of July. However, your comment there is now making me think twice. Is it really a tough/bad road drive?

The reason I am asking this is becuase I went to lansdowne last week with my friends and the road which goes to Pauri from Kotdwara was awesome till the point you take a right to go to Lansdowne (from there to lansdowne the road is good but narrower as compared to one you just left for Pauri). Having been there, I thought it must be a similar road till Khirsu/Pauri. Would you not advise a Fiesta with two kids on board for Khrisu in July?

I don't see why you cannot do it. With a little bit of care and luck, you should get to Khirsu comfortably. July would mean rains, and rains may cause minor landslides - which is why I mention a little bit of luck. Worst case scenario, you might have to wait for 30 minutes or an hour for the road to be cleared.

Has anyone driven to Chail (via Solan) recently? Can you please let me know how the road conditions are nowadays?
I drive an Ikon 1.6 Nxt and recently drove to Kasauli (from Delhi) and the road was pretty good all the way. I am hoping that the road further up from Dharmpur to Chail is driveable!
