It is not the destination that matters in a Road Trip. It is the experience that one stumbles along the journey.
The winter is about to end and why not bid a farewell to the year in an offbeat way? We thought of covering the best short Road Trip destinations which can be done in a day or two. So, stay with us and know how you can hit the road to tick your Winter Bucket List.
Karwar to Mangalore
Have you ever accompanied the sea for a road trip? Yes! It is time to make it possible and throw a race to the waters. You should perhaps start hitting the NH 66 road which is the Karwar-Mangalore highway. This road trip stands best among others for two reasons; the coastal road trip boasts the bluish Arabian sea on one side and the lush green Western Ghats on the other, pure ecstasy. Apart from the joyful 260 km ride, one can’t miss the historical temples in Udupi, adventure-friendly islands in Mangalore and lip-smacking seafood in Karwar.
Mumbai – Pune Expressway
Anyone who is staying in Mumbai for a long period of time shall not shy away when they are asked about the Mumbai-Pune road trip. Having been one of the best road trip destinations in India, one can’t miss the picturesque landscapes glued with abundant greenery. Since it is one of the better-maintained highways, the 93 km long trip is considered to the best for the bike lovers.
Chennai to Pondicherry Via East Coast Road
How about riding on one of the best curvaceous roads? The answer is the East Coast Road which takes you from Chennai to Pondicherry. Since this route is loaded with less traffic, it is the perfect place for the enthusiastic riders. Having the view of the Bay of Bengal on one side, the 160 km stretch passes through Mahabalipuram, Alamparai Fort and Tiger Caves, which is also called as the sculpted wonder of Mahabalipuram.
Visakhapatnam to Araku Valley
Most of us have heard of the famous Vizag-Araku train trail which tunnels into bridges where waterfalls intervene now and then; but what about the offbeat quotient? You should stick to a short road trip from Vizag to Araku, which is again a bonding between the Bay of Bengal and the Eastern Ghats.
Even though Vizag is known for its humidity factor, the road trip is the perfect elevation from the hot springs. The 120 km ride also takes you to the renowned Borra Caves and Tatipudi Reservoir. AND yes! How can one miss the Bamboo Chicken in the Araku valley?
Bangalore to Bandipur
The Bangalore to Bandipur road trip is perhaps one of the road trip destinations which stands unique when compared to others as it the route leads to the forest. The 240 km trip takes you to Mysore, the cleanest city in India and also the Bandipur National Park. If your road trip is wheeled on a car, then it would be more convenient to spot the wildlife too. But if you are enthusiastic to continue further, you can hit the same road to Ooty as well.
And yeah! A ride to Ooty is again a perfect way to end your Winter Bucket List. Don’t you think?
As we said before, the experience during the journey matters the most! So, let us know more about your encountering experiences and we shall feature them on our platform. After all, we at Woovly, value a story in a common soul.
