If you're from Delhi, chances are high that you've definitely heard about this hilly road near Kamla Nagar called the Ridge Road. So this is basically a strip of road sandwiched between vast expanses of trees on both sides. This is actually a pahadi, which will give you the feeling of being in a hilly area, when you're right smack in the middle of Delhi. If you want to experience something surreal away from the hustle and noise of the capital city, and want to spend some quality time with bae while on a drive with the music blaring, you know where to head!
If you're not one of those cliched ‘movie and dinner’ every week kinda couple, and want to experience something new every time you head out with bae, then well, we just gave you a new checklist to cover. Check ‘em out and thank us later!
