1. Pamban Bridge

The Pamban Bridge is a cantilever bridge that connects Pamban on Rameswaram Island to Tamil Nadu, India.

3. NH 212

National Highway 212  connects Kozhikode in Kerala with Kollegal in Karnataka via Mysore and runs through the Bandipur tiger reserve in Karnataka. Do look forward to close encounters with giant Elephants on the way!

4.  Chandigarh-Manali Highway (NH 21)

The foodies and the ones in love with their cameras shall absolutely fall in love with this route. You must have the aaloo paranthas from the dhabas you come upon on the way with garamgaram chai.

5. Leh-Srinagar Highway (NH 1D)

Leh-Ladakh are on the Top-5-Places-to-Visit List of each and every person who lives to travel! Riding to Leh from Srinagar on road is an amazing experience as it offers some astounding views. The scenic contrasts in the changing colors of the mountains brings a factor of surprise.


6. Mahabaleshwar

Mahabaleshwar means ‘God of Great Power’ in Sanskrit.  Indeed, the place is great and bountiful, rewarding the visitor with a mix of old-world charm, natural beauty and modernity leaving you wanting more.

7. Kalyan Nirmal Highway (NH 222)

The Kalyan-Nirmal Highway runs within the states of Maharashtra and Telangana. This route shall hold you spellbound with its beauty but it might get dangerous post sunset, so we’ll advise you to avoid travelling once it gets dark.

8. Rohtang Pass

Rohtang Pass is 51 km from Manali on highway to Keylong/Leh. The panoramic and spectacular mountain view will simply take your breathe away. Remember the song from Jab We Met where Kareena dances her way to Manali? You’re right there.

The old Silk Route is an ancient hilly-road that used to connect Lhasa in Tibet via the Jelep La Pass to India. You would leave a part of yourself in the rare confluence of natural beauty and history of human civilization which would make you want to visit the place again and again.

11. Puri to Konark Route

Don’t consider this route as a plain Puri to Bhuwaneshwar one, what it offers is every traveller’s dream come true. This road offers the travellers some beautiful, scenic views to enjoy the trip as much as the destination.
