While planning a weekend getaway from Delhi we always plan to places like Rishikesh, Shimla, Mussorie, Nainital and other such places which are filled with tourists. Many of you might argue about these being the best weekend getaways from Delhi but we are sick of it. Bet you haven't heard of Chakrata hill station!
During the month of August I was planning to travel for a weekend and I decided to explore a whole new circuit around Sirmour region of Himachal Pradesh and I was not at all disappointed. I discouvered a whole new weekend destination for all those Delhites who are bored of places like Shimla and Mussorie.
Paonta Sahib is located in the Sirmour district for Himachal Pradesh, and is a holy place for sikhs. It is located on the banks of river Yamuna right at the edge of Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand. You get beautiful view of the mountains of Dehradun and river Yamuna flowing alongside in its unseen majestic form. It is well connected by buses from Delhi however driving in your vehicle is recommended as the road is beautiful and you drive through the beautiful Kalesar Wildlife Sanctuary. Although the places is not more than half day of time but you will feel great spending some time in the Gurudwara.
