Fun fact: There are two large lakes or tals, which seem to be interconnected mysteriously even though they are separated by a hillock, the water level in both the tals always remains the same.

Anuj Mehta: The trip was comfortable with good signages. There different routes but the best one is via Panchkula. There are lot of dhabas and other food joints like Mac/Sagar ratna/Dominos etc are available. It is easy drive and can easily be covered in about 6 hrs.

Shubham Mangla: Delhi to Vrindavan is around 140 km that will take you 3 to 3.5 hr to reach depending on season, timing. Road is very good and I travelled via Faridabad to Mathura Road. There is an alternate route via Noida-Expressway also.

Also known as the Pink City, Jaipur is dotted with forts on its peripheries and palaces at its heart.

Hairsh: Since Jaipur Highway is over-crowded I took the Alwar, Sikandra-Jaipur toll road and its was a excellent drive with less of traffic even though had to drive extra miles. The route has all the restaurants and dhabas and less traffic and riding along the railway line with racing with train was an experience.

Pitstop 2: Alwar

Route: NH8

A hotspot for adventure sports and activities near Delhi, Damdama Lake is one of the most popular spots to to spend the weekend away from the city in a quiet and scenic atmosphere.

Saurabh Tyagi: Best you can go by Delhi Jaipur Highway and then take a left turn to Alwar Road. It's a busy road in morning and evening time so it will take around 1.5 hour to reach on destination. You will find lots of good food options like McDonalds, Pizza hut and other.
