    • Thanks for suggestion Vishal, Please share your experience and let us know the roads of beautiful Uttarakhand.

  • Mayank Rajput

    I would like to suggest the McLeodganj to Kangra stretch here
    also the to road leading to Nainital is really beautilful too

  • Jayant Sharma

    The Delhi-Jaipur highway is completely ruined now, with so much construction activity going on, there are plenty of bottle necks,
    and does not deserve to be on this list any more….

  • Ashish poddar

    I won’t count the Jaipur delhi road or the noida Agra road at all.

    I would definitely recommend the tea estate drive from Kaziranga to Golaghat in Assam as one of the finest and most beautiful drives. There are tea gardens on both sides. Recommend you to try this driver and add it to your list.

  • Alex

    Bangalore-Wynad-Kozhikode drive is one of the scenic drives.

    • മരക്കാര്

      Its an excellent stretch. Don’t know how the author missed it!

  • Jesus F***ed All

    Konkan Track is the most beautiful in India. Even Mumbai to Pune is amazing track. The same highway could be used to reach bangalore and possibly Goa. Delhi Gurgaon, Jaisalmer to Balmer shouldn’t be on the list. Generally highways in south india has beautiful surrounding. Just people in south are ugly with weird food.

  • Anupam Mazumdar

    Many of these i have covered: Chennai to Pondicherry is very good, but i did not find it any exceptional to be in top 10 highways.
