8 Hideaways Where You Can Clear Your Head In Delhi

Tripoto

I live in Delhi, and for me, there’s nothing that compares to its culture, energy and convenience. I’m not alone in feeling this way — more than half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas. 

But I also know that when it comes to mental health, the urban lifestyle may not be such a good thing. Delhi is a busy place, full of busy people, and sometimes it can be hard to get out of the city’s gray haze and find some fresh air and peace of mind.

But there are plenty of ways to find that much needed escape, if you only know where to look. Head out to these places in Delhi when you feel the need to recharge.

2. Kamla Nehru Ridge

The northern ridge is a cheerful corner of University of Delhi where, away from the scholarly repose, you find youngsters wandering during silent colorful evenings, dropping sheepish hellos to their old professors seen running or taking a casual stroll.

Manger Lake Mine/Bhardwaj Lake or Asola Bhatti Lake is the last surviving remnant of what we know as the Delhi Ridge. At the southernmost corner of Delhi, the lake is at the end of the walking trail in the semi-arid sanctuary. This hidden spot can be approached from Tuglaqabad to Surajkund Road.
