Holi, the festival of fun, colours and everything is around the corner. For those who prefer travel over colours, and for those who do not and enjoy both equally, here is a way to make the extended weekend holiday more exciting.

Use your Holi holidays to travel to these top getaways that are not so far from Delhi.

Here are our top picks:

  1. A trip into the wild

Let your passion for wildlife and photography run free this Holi. Make a trip to Jim Corbett National Park (Uttarakhand), Sariska National Park or Bharatpur bird sanctuary( Rajasthan) for the weekend. Enjoy the wilderness around; click pictures and take safaris for a color free yet wild Holi.

  1. Peace OK Please!

If nature is your breather and quietude is what you’re looking for, head straight to Himachal. De-clutter your brain in picturesque hill-stations like Lansdowne, Shimla, Nainital, Macleodganj, Kasol, Binsar etc, enjoy camping and trekking, and come back rejuvenated.

Top up this experience with a stay at an OYO Home, use local homestays, Airbnb or just hotels.

  1. Adventure Adrenaline

If adventure runs in your veins,you can try adventure sports like Rafting, kayaking, flying fox, rappelling, bungee jumping at Rishikesh( Uttarakhand), paragliding at Bir Billing( Himachal), waterfall trekking and Lake trek at Tirthan (Himachal).

  1. Highway high-ness

Road trips are fun and this is the best time to get your gang together and set off for Manali (Himachal Pradesh).  The mountains, lush green pines, the sun-kissed roads and your favorite group to have fun with , Manali, Kufri, Kasauli are among some places to road trip to.

  1. Staycation, anyone?

You can book yourself and your family a nearby OYO Home and enjoy the home away from home experience.
