Haven't Experienced Dilli Ki Sardi? 9 Reasons Why You Will Absolutely Love Delhi Winters:

  1. Delhi
  2. New Delhi (Delhi)

1. The Sunrise During Winters Is Nothing Less Than Stunning

Jogging is the best idea during this season.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sneha Agarwal says, “Morning walk here feels like heaven. The park is big and you can run, do yoga, play and still go un-noticed. I just love this place.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Shruti Sharma, “Lodhi Gardens embodies Delhi. A true mix of the ancient and the modern. It has centuries of history and today's leaders walking there every morning. Go there to see bureaucrats, politicians and industrialists, it gets crowded every morning from 7 to 8:30 am. Very clean and well maintained place.”

2. Don’t Blame The Winter If You Get Carried Away And Hit The Expressways

Don’t blame the Delhi winter if you get carried away while driving on a host of expressways Delhi has to offer. If monsoon was just enough to assure you a memorable ride, winter will cement that experience.

HolidayIQ Traveller Ranit Das says, “Great road, car moves at a speed of 100 km per hour. We totally enjoyed the ride. It took almost 2 hrs 30 mins to reach the destination. You will find the famous Buddh circuit in your way. One tip, if you plan to return to New Delhi within 24 hours then buy toll for both sides.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Vishakha, “There are multiple routes from Delhi to Agra, but we took the expensive but the fastest route to Agra - Yamuna Expressway. The expressway starts from Noida and ends at Agra. The toll for the entire journey is Rs. 320 for cars. The roads are more or less empty and the car can easily cruise at a speed of 150 kmph. My own car reached upto a whopping 210 kmph. But we controlled the speed to avoid risking a tyre burst. Although there is no need to take a stop, there are food plazas on the way to take a break or refreshments.”

3. The Perfect Antidote: Chai During Dilli Ki Sardi

Delhi winters are surely something you should experience. One thing that you shouldn’t miss in the winters is going to a local chai shop in the morning and having a steaming cup of tea or visiting a punjabi dhaba and ordering some of the best desi cuisines!

HolidayIQ Traveller Sunil Kumar says, “Delhi is super city in winter and rainy season. You have a number of places to see. Delhi food is awesome and the city is so planned with all indications on road.”

4. And The Winter Menu Is Definitely Incomplete Without Momos
