Weekend Getaway From Delhi

Delhi is a vibrant and fun city but sometimes, you just have to escape.

Luckily, there are a lot of great weekend getaways from Delhi. One such option is Karnal. On the main NH1 highway, the way to Karnal is relatively good and there are a number of worthwhile attractions along the way. In fact, Karnal is so close that one can even take a one day trip from Delhi.

Some other locations around Delhi are also interesting and technically within 150 kms from the city but are hard to get in and out of because of road conditions, traffic conditions or other restrictions. One tends to spend the whole day getting there and then another day getting out, which leaves little time to enjoy the weekend.

There are a few good hotels in Karnal but they are deep within the city. The Vivaan Hotel and Resorts has the advantage of being outside the city and next to the main highway. From here, one can have easy access to Chandigarh and Delhi and also to many of Karnal’s attractions.


Attractions around Karnal

Around Karnal, there are a number of spots worth visiting. Chief amongst them are:
The Karnal Lake,
Karan Tal Park,
Baburs Masjid,
Chhachhrauli Fort,
Kalandar Shah’s Tomb,

The Karnal Lake, also called Karna Tal, is a beautiful man made lake. It is perfect for boating and picnics on its lush green gardens. The gardens also have swings and a play area for children. The lake is next to the Karna Lake Tourist Complex, which offers excellent facilities for visitors.

Babur’s Masjid is a wonderful structure made all the way back in 1528. It was made by Mughal Emperor Babur himself to commemorate his victory over Ibrahim Lodhi. The Mosque is a great example of early Mughal architecture and features a well that still works.
