The move by road was a good decision and I enjoyed the travel. However itís advisable to move early in the morning to avoid traffic rush of Delhi. The Ghat Road is quite scenic and beautiful. However finding a parking place is difficult in Nainital. Itís advisable to book a hotel with itís own parking. You can go to Corbett on your return back to Delhi. There is a different route to Corbett. But book your tickets for the safari well in advance. Otherwise the resorts in Corbett con you.

I had booked from Old Delhi Railway Station to Kathgodam in sleeper class. Train departed at 22:30 Pm and arrived at Kathgodam at 5:05 Am. Then we were taken a taxi from Kathgodam to Nainital. They charged Rs. 150 per head and journey from Kathgodam to Nainital was very beautiful.

Experience by car was best. Driver was so helpful and a kind person. He showed many places to us and even he let us wait on way of National Corbett Park. So that we can see some animals. Felt like we are in our own car. Road trip in car was one of best things happened in my trip.

Journey from Delhi to Naintal is very nice and good road I would prefer driving via Rampur, instead of Rudrapur Route. It is wider, better and shorter. Food on the way is good. Must try either at Udupiwala ahead of Gajraula or Monga at Gajraula. It is better to drive at a speed around 70 to 80 to have better control and enjoyable driving. Many good places to take snaps on the way. There are four tolls on the way though charges are high but the roads are very smooth and well-maintained. Must acknowledge to good work done by NHAI and Govt of UK.

As one drives out of Delhi on NH 24 the road is very good till one reaches Moradabad. There are plenty of eating places as one is on the Moradabad city bye pass road. However, at a junction there is no proper sign posting to indicate which road to take for Nainital. Unfortunately, we were guided wrongly by a local and the road took us through a State road which was single lane and in need of repair at a number of places. Finally, we went through Haldwani-Kathgodam- Nainital and covered the journey by driving nearly 340 kms.

While driving back we were told to take the route Kaladungi-Rampur-moradabad. The road is good with not much traffic. However, when u are nearing Moradabad there is a big sign post on your right which reads bye pass road to Delhi. We took the route taking the bye pass in its true sense, but found that we had to drive thru what looked like small habitats and single lane road which took us through Kashipur. After going through Kashipur town there again was a sign board reading bye pass road, which again turned out to be like the earlier one and we covered the distance to Delhi by driving 350 kms.
