When we are in Delhi, and wants to satisfy our quench of adventure, we generally bump into the route taken often , like Shimla, Manali, Nanital etc. Somehow for someone looking adventure, clean fresh air, usual routes don’t interest them as these mainstream has become kind of fish market and way too commercialised but little peace to offer.
If you really want to rejuvenate & get revitalise yourself over the weekend & perhaps a day or two off,and looking for some leisure and adventure it would be better staying in a village in the outskirts of these towns or heading out to the adventure camps which offers the required adrenaline rush. One can grab enough picturesque shots & clean air to get going. My unsatisfied quench recently led me to some places I consider to be better travelling options than the more commercial ones.
