5 Best Road Trip Routes in India

Not all those who wander are lost – J.R. Tolkien

Not one  truer thing was ever said by Mr Tolkien in spite of all the fantastic work he’s done throughout his years of service to English literature. One of my favorite things to do as a traveler is to set off on impulsive, spontaneous, expansive and erratic road trips.  Be it with a bunch of your closest, craziest friends, your significant other, your family or just by yourself, road trips give you an odd kind of high – I think it comes from an elusive sense of liberation, freedom, that odd thrill of an escapade and a little bit of marijuana thrown in for good measure (just kidding, be a responsible driver if you’re behind the wheels 😛 ).

I strongly believe that travelling is so much more about the journey than about the destination itself. Much of the fabled self-discovery, the small defining moments, the profound thinking, observing and changing happens as much along the way as it happens at the place you travel to. Friendships forged in gold are born out of road-trips – there’s so much to experience, so much to share, celebrate and exalt in, you re-discover not just your companions, but even yourself, in so many ways.

So here’re our top 5 route-picks for the most enthralling, memorable and breath-taking moments of your nomadic lives 🙂

  1. Great post! India isn’t a country I would think of doing a road trip in but these routes sound great! Awesome photos as well- love the windy paths!

    • Hannah,

      you’re right in a way – driving in India can be a challenge in
      itself; especially the urban areas! I know so many westerners who marvel
      at the way locals drive in this country, but some of these routes are
      really breath-taking, you must try some day 🙂

  2. Beautiful! I have only been to Northern India to date, but this post makes me want to explore a lot more of it!

  3. Interesting! I wouldn’t think to be road tripping through India. We will be visiting India for 2-3 months in February, so nice to see what our options are for getting around.

  4. The Crowded Planet

    great idea for a post! India is not the country one thinks in relation to road trips, but there are some amazing ones to do!

  5. Awesome! I have only been to South part India – Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Vizag. This post makes me want to explore more in India!
