Default Delhi / NCR BHPians drive to Sambhar Lake

A long drive+meet was long due since the Jodhpur drive+meet. Our initial plan was to do a Delhi-Bikaner-Delhi lunch drive in couple of cars. Bikaner is almost 500 kms from Delhi, given that we all had just 1 day it would have been more of a touch and go lunch trip.

Sambhar was closer to Delhi, its proximity to Jaipur meant we can stay at Sambhar till sunset to click pictures and have dinner at the Pink city. We eventually decided to head to Sambhar Lake.

The plan:

Quote:
Delhi/NCR BHPians Marathon Drive to Sambhar Salt Lake and Jaipur

When: 10th February.

Meeting point and time: 4:15 am at Barista.
Nh 8, Rangpuri, Avenue Bouganvillea, Rangpuri, New Delhi, Delhi 110037, India
+91 11 4985 4805
https://maps.google.com/?cid=9894154...91&hl=en&gl=us

Plan:
  • Leave Delhi at 4:30 am.
  • Breakfast stop at Hotel Highway King, Bagru.
  • Spend the day till sunset at Sambhar Salt Lake.
  • Leave Sambhar Salt Lake for Jaipur after sunset.
  • Dinner at Jaipur: Handi.
  • Drive back to Delhi after Dinner.
On the 10th of February, we left from Manesar at 4:30....

Great compilation Cheef Rishi. Indeed a great trip, topped up with equally incredible food.

I'm also attaching a Youtube video that we created for this trip. It was just made for fun and no copyright infringement was intended by the creator.

“A Prophet is not honoured in his own country“

When it comes to Sambhar, this idom fits perfectly for me. A gem of a place which is barely 50 kms from my clinic, numerous plans made and canceled and the place is still not visited even once.
Well, this thread has triggered that itch again. Beautifully crafted with amazing clicks.

Salt lake looks beautiful and seems that you guys had a lot of fun watching the sunset, flamingos, relishing on Rajasthani delicacies. Cheers.

Must say the video has been shot and edited beautifully.
Q3 getting a spin is awe-inspiring. All the pics are indeed awesome.
The vastness of the salt lake depicts what nature has to offer. Has been one heck of a trip, it seems.

Cheers!
