Description

Driving Holidays Across India is an ideal go-to-guide, suited for every kind of driving enthusiast, and lays out an impressive list of 23 scenic drives across the vast Indian terrain.

India’s varied topography offers immense potential as a driving destination. For those of you who love to drive, Driving Holidays Across India is a useful guide that will help you determine many aspects of your road trip. The book starts off with its first section providing invaluable tips on how to get your car up and ready for the drive, what essentials to pack, driving in different types of terrain and seasons, and what to do if involved in an accident.

It proceeds further, taking you through an exhaustive list of 23 drives covering the length and breadth of India. Each drive lists down all the possible information that one could possibly need while driving long distances across Indian states, including distance charts, complete with kilometer readings and directions on whether to go left, right, or straight, and appropriate landmarks to avoid getting off course. In fact, the information given is detailed enough to tell you even the petrol pumps, service stations, auto repair shops, dhabas, and tea stalls that you are likely to encounter along your way.

In order to make your drive more interesting from a touristic perspective, Driving Holidays Across India gives information to the traveler about the stopovers that are enroute every drive, with available hotels, places worth seeing, and other attractions being mentioned. The route guide assigned to each drive tells the location of the nearest railheads and airports, so as to help you plan your trip better. It also includes information on places of national interest such as water bodies and wildlife sanctuaries.

The drives included in this travel guide range from the very grueling ones like the Delhi-Spiti and Manali-Leh routes, typically suited for the seasoned driving enthusiast, to the comparatively tamer drives such as the Chennai-Dhanushkodi and Mumbai-Delhi routes, for those looking for a pleasurable easier ride. A comprehensive list of hotels and accommodation has been provided in the back pages of the book.
