If you’re in the NCR and looking for a touch of royalty, head out to Rajasthan. The mighty palaces and forts in Udaipur take on a rustic hue in this season. Take a horse ride around the city or indulge in some shopping in the variety of flea markets. But if the city feels a little overwhelming, take a road trip to Mount Abu, a hill station that is complete with beautiful lakes and gushing waterfalls.

If you stay in Bangalore and love road trips, the city gives the perfect opportunity for bikers to fill up the tank, rev up the engine and hit the road. Pick from beaches, hill stations, forest reserves, and even a slice of history. You can also make your day an eventful one by opting for adventure sports like rafting in Gokarna or Bheemeshwari, trekking in Chikmagalur or just be in the city and try wall climbing at the Gethnaa Climbing Wall at Kanteerva Stadium or Urban Climbers on Sarjapur Road.

For Mumbaikars, if the sea doesn’t sound fun enough then how about a trek in the hills with waterfalls to keep you company? Take a quick weekend trip with friends out of the city to places like Malshej Ghat, Lonavala, Khandala or Matheran for some nature trailing fun.  And for the wine lovers, Nashik, also called the ‘Wine Capital of India’, is one of the best places you can be this weekend!

And because there is no end to places to travel over this weekend, which means this article will never end, we suggest our friends in other cities to take advantage of the long weekend and refuel their passions and recharge your batteries because Monday is coming soon!
