Unexplored Road Trip Routes in india

With its vast geographical and cultural variation, India would certainly be a dream country for anyone who loves road trips.

While travelling through the commonly used roads has its fun and enjoyment, the less crowded roads give an entirely different kind of pleasure and thrill.

Here are 3 offbeat road trip routes in India that every car enthusiast should explore:


1. Mumbai to Goa via the Coastal Highway


Although many people on this route might be familiar with the Mumbai to Goa highway, the coastal route on NH66 provides a beautiful drive with scenic ocean views and lovely coastal villages.

The tour plan is to visit Ganpatipule Beach, Ratnagiri, Malvan and Tarkarli Beach during the trip.

Ganpatipule is famous for its beautiful beach and the famous Ganpatipule Temple is also located in this area.

It has ancient forts and scenic beaches as its main attractions.

Malvan and Tarkarli are one of the best beaches that you can find in Maharashtra where tourists can indulge in water sports such as snorkeling and scuba diving.



Approximately 590 km.


Best Time to Visit:

It is from October to February because the temperature is moderate and there is no rough sea.

The weather is perfect for enjoying the ride.


The coastal drive along the Konkan is fascinating, with the sea on one side and the verdant pasture on the other.

The drive from the concrete jungle that is Chennai to the greenery of Munnar offers the glamour of the city and the simple, natural beauty of the countryside.



The route passes through Kodaikanal, Valparai, Anamalai Tiger Reserve and finally to Munnar.


Kodaikanal also referred to as the “Queen of Hill Stations,” boasts of magnificent lakes and dense forests.

Valparai is another hilly region that is known for its tea gardens and wildlife corridors.


As the name suggests the Anamalai Tiger Reserve is home to about 30 tigers and boasts a rich and diverse population of multiple wildlife species.


Munnar, the land of three rivers, has vast tea estates, and hills and the mild climate after the tiresome journey is soothing and that is why it's one of the best places to visit in Southern India.



Approximately 600 km.


Best Time to Visit:

From September to March to have good weather because the monsoon rains start in April.



3. Ahmedabad to Kutch


The journey from Ahmedabad to Kutch is one of the most rewarding drives in India – a fascinating journey through the rugged landscapes of the Great Indian Thar Desert.

Rann Of Kutch

This route will lead you through some of the most beautiful landscapes that are present in the territory of India.



Some of the most important places to visit are Bhuj, the Rann of Kutch, Dholavira, and Mandvi Beach.

Bhuj is famous for its culture and architecture and hence it has many historical places to visit.

The salt desert of the Rann of Kutch is especially beautiful at night when the Rann Utsav festival is held when the entire area is covered by the light of the moon.

Dholavira is one of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization sites located in the state of Gujarat in India.

Mandvi Beach is one of the best places to visit in Kutch, ideally for those seeking to unwind by the beach.



Approximately 400 km.


Best Time to Visit:

This is between November and February especially when the Rann Utsav is held and the climate is relatively cold.


This road trip is not only a drive through the salt desert but also an amazing experience of the culture and history of the place, which makes this trip very special.

Kutch's road To Heaven

These are some of the best offbeat road trip itineraries in India that can give you a chance to drive through various terrains and discover the hidden gems of this country.

These routes offer a great way to escape the hectic world of contemporary society and indulge in mountainous hikes, coastal tranquillity, or cultural tourism.
