Manali to Leh

This is the mother of all road trips. This snowy route will take you through delightful mist and soft clouds. You’re literally climbing up and up on this route so do be careful and drive slow. You will be surrounded by the mighty Himalayas that will leave you humbled and awed. This is one of the most romantic road trips in India that you must undertake with your partner for the test of true love!

Mumbai to Goa

Mumbai to Goa

A route on which numerous Bollywood flicks have their plots based on, the Mumbai to Goa route goes beyond comparison. The winding, forest-fringed ghats will both terrify you and inspire you to slow down and take in the beauty and majesty of the lush surroundings. The best time to take a Mumbai to Goa road trip is during the rainy season, when the roads will be awash in rain and the trees will be gloriously green.

Road distance: Approx. 609 kms; Travel time: Approx. 10 hours

Bangalore to Coorg

Let the spice and coffee plantations of Coorg welcome you with open arms as you make your picturesque way here from Bangalore. Don’t be surprised by all the lush greenery and fresh air that you will encounter on the way to Coorg. Once outside the city, it will only be you, your partner and the much-needed solitude. It’s a short drive but oh, the sights you will see are a complete feast for your eyes!

Road distance: Approx. 260 kms; Travel time: Approx. 5 hours

Shimla to Manali

The Shimla to Manali route is a picturesque medley of snaking roads, snowy vistas and the beautiful River Beas that will keep you company. Forget the world and keep each other warm while you drive from snow-clad Shimla to snow-clad Manali, and soak up the wonderful sights and sounds of your incomparable surroundings.

Shillong to Cherrapunjee

The Northeast is picture-perfect anyways; but when you put a road trip into the mix, it will be the best thing to happen to your relationship!

All you have to do is drive carefully, stop at interesting spots and experience the beauty and generosity of the Northeast with your partner.
