Default A quiet getaway from Delhi , for some introspection.

Hi Folks,

Its been a while since i have posted on TBHP , did a Delhi - Manali - Khaza - Leh - Delhi bike trip in july and the itch has caught on .

I call it Pahadi Bhukar ,

Well i wanted to go to the hills in winter to see the snow maybe , this time its more about introspection , i am planning to find a small [ read sparsely crowded ] cozy place somewhere not too far from delhi [ Far as in travel time , not distance ]

just want to go there with my girl and spend some time, introspecting on things , talking , smiling , laughing and just spending time in mother nature's lap.

i have some ideas , but wanted to get more from T-BHPians from up north , here is my plan .

BLR - DEL : Flight .
Delhi - Rishikesh : 221 KM [ Spend some time there 2 days ]
Rishikesh - Lansdowne 125 KM [ 3 ~ 4 days ]
** Some interesting place nearby [ 2 days ]
Delhi [ Stay ] : 1 Day
Contingency : 1 Day.
Total duration : 10 Days .

Catch :

1] My girl will be travelling from dharamsala , so she will have to come from chandi as she will be there for some time , hence the destination should be mutually easy to travel.

2] we will / might have our pet [ cocker spaniel ] so any pet friendly hotel / stay options please suggest.

My plan is to land in delhi and catch a taxi or maybe get the morning satabdi express to haridwar , then rendezvous with my GF in rishikesh .

So , please help me out guys .
Wanna make this a special trip .

P.S - would not mind camping , if there is a safe route to pitch my gear or to do day hikes / trails .




@ Mods : Hope this is the right thread .

Well Lansdowne seems laid back enough and tenting can be an option there. Is safe enough. From Chandigarh she will be better off coming to Delhi than Rishikesh if you choose Lansdowne.
But if you are open to HP then can suggest Karsog as one of the options but its better to drive down there than take a taxi. You too can RV at either Shimla or Mandi.

Well, if at a later stage you want to have a quick getaway, try "Neemrana Fort-Palace".. about 100km from Delhi.
Beautiful place!

Thanks mate , but looks like me and my girl are parting ways ...
The saddest part is that she was fun , adventorous , travel loving et al ..
But guess we part ways here , she goes her way , and i drive my way in my
punto :(

P.S -I am definetely planning a quick getaway near home , maybe will go to my BRO's place in Valparai .
