Fast cars, loud streets, tall buildings, industrial pollution, a getaway from the wonderful city of Delhi, sometimes, comes in handy. Although Delhi has rich cultural heritage of its own, a 200km drive towards possibility and adventure is the exact remedy for a serious case of chronic monotony.

Here is a list of places around Delhi for a relaxing Camp-cation:

1. Neemrana

Tucked away in the quaint city of Alwar, Rajasthan is the wonderful town of Neemrana. Once occupied by the great Chauhans, it still maintains it’s regal status till date! Situated only 150 kms from Delhi, Neemrana, gently pushes away the city blues with a rich culture of its own! In addition to that adventure sports like zip-line can also be an attraction for the adrenaline junkie.

2. Mussoorie

A 6 hour drive away from the National Capital, will place you straight in mother nature’s lap. Mussoorie gives her visitor the complete freedom to interact with its extensive flora and fauna. This wonderful town was once considered a ‘fairyland’ amongst tourists. It’s safe to say that it hasn’t digressed from that title just yet!

3. Mcleodganj

Serenity and adventure converge together in this wonderful city. A little further away than the above mentioned but worth every kilometer treaded. A little peace and quiet for the self-nurturing, spiritual traveler is one of the things this small town has to offer. Decorated with beautiful monasteries, lip smacking food, Mcleodganj caters to both – the mind and body. If you’re an adventure junkie, head on up the rough terrains of the Triund Valley trek for an overnight camping expedition and a great view!

4. Agra

Give in to the romantic inside you and pay a visit to the city of love, home to one of the 8 wonders of the world! Pay homage to the beautiful Taj, situated only 206kms away from NCR. We as travellers are greatly indebted to the Mughal era and Agra is one of the cities that shows us just why! In addition to the wonderful Taj take some time out to visit- Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri ,Akbars tomb and I’timād-Ud-Daulah (baby Taj!) all while snacking on some bedhai and kachori!

5. Rishikesh

Meditation. Relaxation. Something cold, tall and icy in your hand. The smell of charcoal and the sweet sound of the river. You open your eyes, to be welcomed by the mountains. The cold mountain air sends chills down your spine, you’re finally home. Except home is 240km away in Rishikesh. If that wasn’t reason enough for you to tread into the holy city of Rishikesh with your backpack and sleeping bag the city has to offer services like Bungee jumping, cliff jumping, flying fox and so much more! It is one of the few places in India which certifiably offers these services. An experience like no other, experience the beauty of this peaceful sanctuary as you rush down a hill at 160km/hr. A harness, a carabiner and you. Fell the rush of the cold mountain air as you propel into the vastness of the mountains! For the water lovers, Rishikesh offers its famous white water rafting, banana boat, and so much more!
