No hard shadows, greens looking their best against the stone, or vice versa.
Some awesomely clean and delicious pictures. Pictures from inside car were a little bit of turn off, but hey, there is always a next time. Carry your DSLR next time, for a fact I sure will whenever I go there. It's a beautiful fort as shown by you and Sam in respective travelogues.

I don't have a DSLR yet, I only borrow my friends Nikon's Manual SLR once in a while.

Pictures in a car are not good because I was clicking and driving together, so no time to compose the frames. I couldn't even glance at the LCD screen well. And you know how bad LCD's are in daylight. Worse, it was cloudy all through. Also, a point-and-shoot doesn't focus very well at 90 kmph.

Good travelog.

Next time it better be Chakrata or Manali or Shoja atleast

And add on a CPL filter. Cleans up any internal reflections from the glass!!

@Sam: 600 bucks for lunch, 300 (?) for entry makes it an expensive visit. Especially if one were to compare it with the likes of Jodhpur fort in any respect.

Chakrata kitthe ? Manali... will have to go once.

Shoja... hmm, May 2006, one Ford Ikon 1.6 SXi, one good driver (my client on his second Ford Ikon after totalling one in an accident) and me in the passengers seat. Good drive... Delhi, Kiratpur, Mandi, Aut, Banjar, Bathad, Shoja, Jalori etc. Stayed at the Himalayan Trout House at Nagni village. Awesome place and a must-go.... lets plan a trip. Old memories re-surfacing.

Is the "hoping" to succeed because of:

1. Convincing yourself (or whoever's funding you?)
2. Bad dealer / A.s.s?
3. Waiting Period?

In any of the cases, buying a Palio in today's scenario will not be a popular decision, even if easy.
All the best!

Default Agra to Neemrana route options?

Hi guys

I am in the middle of planning a leg of a road trip from Gurgaon to Agra to Neemrana and back to Gurgaon. Gurgaon -> Agra is fairly obvious, I'm taking the expressway and so is Neemrana -> Gurgaon.

As far as Agra -> Neemrana is concerned, what's the best possible route? Scenic qualities + well-maintained uncongested roads have a much stronger precedence over time/distance.

As of now Google shows me these options:

260 kms Round Trip for lunch: Delhi - Neemrana on Palio MJD!-screenshot-20151001-22.50.25.png

Thanks in advance!

Not sure about the local conditions on this route. In your place, I would have tried Agra - Palwal - Sohna - Dharuhera - Neemrana. Perhaps even Agra - Hodal - Nuh - Taoru - Bhiwadi - Dharuhera - Neemrana but I am unaware of the road condition or Palwal - Sohna or Hodal - Bhiwadi. The truckers who want to get to Manesar / Dharuhera from Palwal take these routes to avoid Delhi.
