Aamod Manesar
A place for Delhites and NCR crowd to unwind and relax on a weekend after a hectic workweek.
Not far from Gurgaon, between Manesar and Bilaspur, this small getaway resort has it all.

The food is by & large delicious, rooms are amazingly designed, there are open lawns on both side of the property. There are lots of activities around like a short obstacle course (guided), volleyball, basket ball, badminton, cricket, table tennis, swimming pool, carom, this place really keeps you engaged and occupied.

Over all a good stress buster place. The room stay charges are on a higher side, but the group packaging is worth a trip. The only improvement the place need is "Better Road signs and coordinates for the guests to reach there "..

The Perfect Hideout at Seclude, Palampur

Just the right place to go when you want to get away from the hustle bustle of life....tucked away pretty in Nagari Palampur....this is the best place to go when u wanna unwind...go for long walks...live in a place with picturesque surroundings....catch up with some good reading. Superb landscapes such that one does not want to take eye off it even for a minute.

The property is very very nice. It is a bungalow which has large spacious rooms n washrooms with great views. Though you do not have much of a choice with food...the cook, who is a local elderly gentleman..makes some delicious food and is more than happy to cook as ordered.

A great experience!!!

The Himalayan Village Resort Kasol



You can try this resort on your way to Manikaran. The resort is quite beautiful and very well maintained, If you are willing to spend lavishly and enjoy a very peaceful stay in the nature's lap then only its a recommended place for you.

Staff is very helpful, courteous and friendly. The restaurant has a good variety of food to choose from.



The Superior Machan is a must try, it has stunning view of the river and overlooks the entire property. It is surrounded by trees on the other three directions, enough distance for the nice chilly breeze to flow. The room gets quite cold after dark.

Must Try Dhabas | Restaurant on Delhi Chandigarh Highway

Some of the best Restaurant on Delhi Chandigarh Highway are:

Haveli, Murthal
The traditional Punjabi veg restaurant
on National Highway 1, Murthal, Sonipat, India

Fantastic restaurant on National Highway 1, exceptional food, service and fantastically clean toilet facilities for travelers. http://haveliheritage.net/murthal/

Sukhdev Dhaba / Gulshan Dhaba
Pure Vegetarian Dhaba
Murthal, Sonipat, India

Paranthas with a dollop of white butter here are good. Gulshan Dhaba nearby is also a better option now.

Sukhdev Vaishno DhabaPure Vegetarian Dhaba
G.T. Road | Murthal, Sonipat

Aalu, Pyaaz, Paneer, Gobhi, Mooli etc order any parantha you wish for. They are yum. Aloo Pyaaz parantha is recommended. What makes it even more special is the quantity of white butter that they put on top of it. Tip: you can order some of your paranthas without butter since their butter serving is sufficient for 2.

Chokhi Dhani
Rajasthani Cuisine
64th Milestone, NH-1, Ganaur, Sonipat
Must try while travelling from Delhi to Ambala. Created a rajasthani culture same as choki dhani in Jaipur.All the food, snacks, drinks etc are of Rajasthani cuisine and are just perfect. You can spend a value time with family with activities involving folk dances, magic shows , village culture, and rides.

Homestays are the great way to feel at home when away from home. This concept is really picking up well. They are cost effective, you feel comfortable, you get to meet people who will make you feel at home and there is a cross culture exchange experience.

9 Trees, Jaipur

Its a garden retreat located in the green belt of Jaipur, a few minutes drive from the airport on an eight acre estate in the foothills of the majestic Aravali hills surrounded by lush greenery, 9Trees provides a cocoon of restful peace and tranquility to retreat into after a long day spent exploring the nuances of the bustling Jaipur city.
