Many people who live in cities often feel fatigued due to monotonous lifestyles. Taking a road trip is one of the easiest ways to break the monotony and refresh your life. Whichever city you live in, you can find plenty of roads in good condition, leading to amazing destinations. Autoriders gives you top notch car rentals in India for convenience, affordability, and comfort. Here’s a glimpse at four popular routes to exciting destinations leading from famous metropolitan cities.
1. Mumbai to Goa
This is the best time to embark on a road trip to Goa. New year celebrations in Goa are just weeks away, and hitting the spot around this time is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Follow the route along the NH 17, and enjoy the beautiful sand and sea views on your way to an experience of a lifetime. It will take you approximately 10 hours of travel time to reach Goa. The road from Mumbai to Goa is dotted with amazing food joints that give you great convenience. Begin early to ensure there is enough light for you to see the Western Ghats on the way.
2. Chennai to Munnar
Although you require at least a week to do the beauty of Munnar any justice, you can still opt for the Chennai-to-Munnar route for your weekend trip, especially if you want to escape Chennai’s hot and humid climate. Before you reach rolling tea plantations in the salubrious Munnar, check out everything along the 600 km stretch, from rich architecture in Villupuram to historic temples in Dharapuram. There are many petrol pumps along the way to ensure fuel is never an issue during the expedition.
3. Bangalore to Ooty via Mysore
Bangalore to Ooty via Mysore is a perfect route for travel enthusiasts who like the company of nature. Snuggled in the lap of Nilgiri hills, the 266 km-long road along the SH 17 is just perfect as it features many popular eateries, including McDonald’s and Cafe Coffee Day. Before you go up the Queen of the Nilgiris (Ooty) to explore its dense forests and sprawling grasslands, don’t forget to stop by at Mysore to learn a bit about its ancient history.
4. Delhi to Agra via Mathura on Yamuna Expressway
If you are in NCR and feel like visiting the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, or other notable attractions on a weekend trip, there’s no faster route than Yamuna Expressway. India’s longest six-lane controlled-access expressway stretch, the direct route is designed to reduce travel times between Greater Noida and Agra by up to 4 hours. Although there are no dhabas on the way, modern eateries, including Pizza Hut and McDonald’s, welcome you after every 45 to 60 kms. To reach Agra, reach the end of Yamuna Expressway and U-turn, then drive approximately 12 kms. You can also take the Mathura bypass and follow the NH 24.
