1. Mumbai to Pune Expressway

Distance: 94 km

An easy weekend getaway from Pune / Mumbai, a road trip to Lonavala is something that almost all local residents will take an oath of. Don't forget to taste 'Chikki' in Lonavla. The picturesque atmosphere and lush green leaves are great at calming those irritable nerves. So if you are in this area and are not planning to take a road trip. Put the medal on the paddle, and get cracking!

Two-wheelers are allowed on the old Mumbai-Pune highway (which is in really good shape), while cabs and buses ply on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. Sunny Da Dhaba and The Kinara Village Dhaba are good dining options on the Pune-Lonavala stretch.

2. Manali to Leh Highway

Distance: 479 km

The beauty of a road trip in India from Manali to Leh cannot be captured in words. Remember Kareena Kapoor dancing to 'Yeh Ishq Hai' from Jab We Met? Wouldn't it be fun to cruise that roadside in an open jeep or bullet in its icy glory? Ahh! very beautiful!

The beautiful wedding of the Bay of Bengal and the Eastern Ghats in Visakhapatnam is worth seeing. Any first-time visitor to the city is taken away from the ancient beauty of this union in the city.
