Govt ‘Unlocks’ Holiday Plans !
This 2020 has turned a disaster to the whole world. It has just not collapsed the World Economy but also flushed away all our plans & delayed our dream achievements. But not to worry as we humans are always optimistic! I know, many of us might have already started building up plans for the next year. So being a travel lover here I have jotted down some of the bucket list destinations which could be planned next year.
First let’s check out which long drive road trips we could plan in India itself, Govt ‘Unlocks’ Holiday Plans !
1. Mumbai Goa- (Approx. 12 hours Drive)
Let’s start with ‘GO GOA GONE! Goa is an exciting destination which can never be boredom even if you visit it several times in your life. For many Goa plans are last moment plans. But I am sure many Mumbaikar’s must be dreaming of Goa in this lock down. Running from Mumbai all the way till Kanyakumari, National Highway 66 will take you along the Arabian Sea coast as well as through the lush Western Ghats. There are numerous places you can take a detour to, such as Alibaug, Lonavala–Khandala, Mahabaleshwar and Lavasa. The best part is that this highway also inherently takes you on the iconic Mumbai to Goa road trip! Goan Cuisine, Beach stay, Water sports, unlimited liquor options, Night clubs are the major highlights of this trip. Govt ‘Unlocks’ Holiday Plans !

4. Bhopal- Bori Sanctuary – (Approx 4.30 hours)
If you love driving deep in Jungles then the adventure is waiting for you at Bhopal’s Bori Sanctuary and Satpura Tiger Reserve. Despite being the oldest forest reserve in the country and offering some spectacular views, the Bori-Satpura Wildlife Sanctuary is relatively unexplored and doesn’t see as many visitors as its counterparts such as the Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench, and Panna Tiger Reserves. Situated in the Mahadeo Hills of the Satpura range in the southern parts of the Central Indian Highlands of Madhya Pradesh, the Bori-Satpura Tiger Reserve is blessed with the unique landscape – deep valleys, narrow gorges, cascading waterfalls and rich vegetation. Therefore exploring the Untouched can make you write your own Jungle book. Govt ‘Unlocks’ Holiday Plans !
5. Ahmedabad – The Rann of Kutch- (Approx. 7.30 hours)
Walking & Staying on a Salt land can be experienced here only. For the ultimate experience of Rann of Kutch choose a full moon night to explore the area on your vehicle, because the view of the salt marsh illuminated by moonlight is worth mesmerizing experience. The Rann of Kutch is one of the most geographically unique and culturally incredible places in India. A road trip here would not be of adventure, but of solitude and visual amazement.
