Default Re: Delhi - Nainital : Route Queries

Dear Team,

We are planning for a drive to UK from Lucknow on coming Saturday (13.02.2021). We would be staying at Nainital (KMVN TRH) on night-1 , night-2 at Binsar (TRH Binsar) and return to Nakuchiatal on day-3.

What will be the best route to from Lucknow to Haldwani ? A friend who is a resident of Haldwani suggested Lucknow>Shajahanpur>Bareilly>Haldwani.

Please drop in your tips

Lucknow-Sitapur-Pilibhit-Kathgodam is a more picturesque route with patches thru the jungle and beautiful fields on either side. Distance and time almost the same as the route via Bareilly

Posting for benefit of future travelers from Lucknow to Nainital.I took the following route:

>Lucknow > Hardoi >Shajahanpur >Katra > Bareilly > Kichha > Lalkuan > Haldwani > Kathgodam > Nainital.

Google maps showed correct route without any hiccups. Roads are generally in good shape barring a few patches.Only toll road in this route is Bareilly - Nainital highway (Toll charges - 90 rs). After Katra, before Fatehganj there is a stretch where road construction is ongoing.Expect some 15-30 mins delay since traffic is horrible and police personnel are constantly on duty to keep things moving. Also some 5 kms stretch after U.P border is horrible and keeps pace low. Reliance fuel stations are available on route close to highways.

I am planning a trip from Delhi to Nainital in a few weeks. As of now, Google Maps shows the best route as the Kaladhungi one over the route passing via Haldwani.

I like that route because of the fine scenery on the way, even though off the highway after Rampur it becomes a 2-lane road passing through villages and is peppered with speed breakers, a couple of railway crossings(here luck counts, if it is closed it can be a really long wait with a jam after it opens!). There are also chances of the road becoming partially blocked at some places due to a slow-moving line of sugarcane tractors.

The real issue I foresee is the mess just after exiting Delhi, which to say the least is a test of patience. I plan to move out at 4.30-5 am at the max, to gain an edge over the traffic jams that start in the morning due to the seemingly forever under-construction state of the highway/flyovers.

If anyone has been on the route in the recent past, please let us know about the condition of the roads on this route.

I have some important work in Nainital around 18th-20th April that can not be postponed, hence my trip as mentioned above.

With effect from 1st April the Govt. there has made RT-PCR test mandatory for entry to Uttarakhand. I think that means every vehicle entering the state will be checked, possibly leading to lots of traffic jams, waiting for checking etc.

If anyone, or friends etc. are heading that way during these days especially after 1st April, please let us know about how the traffic and road situation is currently.

If the situation gets really bad I am mentally preparing to leave from Delhi as early as possible, say at 4 am or so.

I recently came to Rishikesh and at the border they are probably using an old RTO office converted as a camp where you need to enter details. They had large parking and everything seemed organized. They may ask for your test again as told by the person manning the check post. Luckily, I was alone and he allowed me to pass as there was some buses behind. I think they are doing test for buses separately somewhere.

Keep print out or original negative report with you and also fill the pass at their website, donít know if itís mandatory but can be helpful when the information is already at there portal.

Regarding your previous query, the new Meerut highway is now operational but you will need to take an exit towards Hapur somewhere as the direct road will now take you to Meerut. Itís marked but be careful not to miss.
