2. Shillong to Cherrapunjee
Move over the mountains now and one of my personal favorite road trips is from Shillong to Cherrapunjee. One of the things that took me by surprise was that the whole route was marked by a really scenic route. The roads are good and one can even come across the Cherra Bridge to catch a breath. The scenic beauty of the route is something that no camera can capture to the fullest. However, make sure to catch a sight of the famous “Bara Pani“(Bada Pani in Hindi). The lesser-known and lesser explored trail is definitely something you must engage in this year. This is also one of the most favorite routes of many bikers in india.

For a fun trip, head straight for the Bangalore- Goa route. A much favored route for the hip crowd, one can opt between two routes, namely via Belgaum or Via Shimoga.
