I am planning a road trip from Delhi to Palampur this weekend. Can anyone share your experience on these -

1. Which route should I take?

2. I am planning to leave Delhi by 11 pm. Is it safe? What should be the best timing?

3. Which are the best places I can take a halt?

4. Is there any travel restriction? Is RT-PCR required now?

Thanks

1. Which route should I take?
Delhi >> Ambala>> Anandpur Sahib >> Nangal >>Palampur

2. I am planning to leave Delhi by 11 pm. Is it safe? What should be the best timing?

Delhi has Night Curfew starting 10 PM to 5 AM from 7 April 2021.
Better start earlier to get off Delhi Border.


3. Which are the best places I can take a halt?
Neelkanth - Karnal if it is open at night.
In Himachal, You can decide on arrival in morning.


4. Is there any travel restriction? Is RT-PCR required now?

No restriction in Punjab for any travel restriction on highways..
No RTPCR Report by Himachal Pradesh till now.


If the Govt announces Lockdown, then you can be stuck like last year cases.

Take your decision wisely.

Police stopped a BCMTian on Punjab Highway, returning from Jammu.
A BCMTian on 8th April 2021 reported this and he spent night in Hotel at Jalandhar.
Don't Drive in Punjab at Night.

"Night curfew in Punjab. Police stopped on highway after Pathankot and asked us to take a hotel nearby. Staying at Jalandhar. Will continue in morning when night curfew is over."
