On the road- 7 self-drive holidays in India you can’t miss

Taking a road trip is one the most immersive ways to travel because the journey is an integral part of the entire experience. Here are 7 road trips—ranging from offbeat routes like Pondicherry to Kovalam to world-famous tracks like Manali to Leh—that really ought to be on your bucket list! Text by Rajasvi Gandhi

The fantastic Manali to Leh road trip traverses over five high-altitude passes and incredible cold-desert topography which is why it’s considered one of the most dramatically scenic driving routes in the world. Drivers can expect to travel for hours without running into signs of civilization in some of the only truly remote frontiers of India. The journey is arduous, the weather unpredictable and the road, passable at best. Not for the faint-hearted but tremendously satisfying, completing this road trip is often worn as a badge of honour amongst motorcyclists who, along with everything else also have to deal with the vagaries of the nature. Distance: 478 km. Pit stops: Keylong, Sarchu.
