More often than I’ve shared my own travel tales with people around me, I’ve been besieged with one pertinent question: Where can we go for 2 days? This question is often followed by more baffling queries like, is Ladakh possible? Where is that place you went to August 2010.. Mcleodganj? Can we go there? We want snow and mountains but traveling time should be less than 3 hours, is that possible? .. and so on.. But lets not digress. I’m sure all of us have either heard that question, or have asked it, or atleast thought of knowing the places that can be explored on a weekend without sacrificing that hard earned leave.
But I’m not going to discuss my thoughts here and restrict the scope of this thread. This thread is not a travel guide, its a compilation of destinations that we have explored in the past and wish to share with the community at large. So I expect all of us to contribute a para or two here, with photographs and contact numbers, and build a directory which will made by us, for us!
My only request here is,
please don’t ask queries in this thread, we have an entire itinerary section to do that
please restrict your travel reports to Himalayas, we have an entire miscellaneous section to discuss other destinations! We will obviously make sub-forums in the misc section if this concept grows.
Lets use this thread only to share our experiences and recommendations for people who want to take up a short trip (driving or otherwise) to Himalayan places accessible to Delhi over a weekend. So here I go, with my first contribution to this thread!
Admin Note: Lets collate up to 3 days destinations from Delhi under this thread. May be with long weekend here and there or affordability of one leave, it will be more beneficial and increase the scope of short trips from Delhi/NCR to Himalayas
