Delhi-Rishikesh Road Trip: 5 Best Food Joints On The Highway For A Delish Meal 

For those who love the mountains, Rishikesh is one of the shortest, yet absolutely stunning getaways from Delhi. By road, it takes around 5 hours to reach Rishikesh from Delhi. Thus, if you start early in the morning from Delhi, you can easily reach your destination by afternoon. Or if you start your journey at night, the next morning the mountains will welcome you. And road trips aren’t just about the drive. They are also about gorging on good food on the way. And thankfully, the Delhi-Rishikesh highway has a plethora of amazing food joints. So, which are the best places to eat on the Delhi-Rishikesh highway? Here are 5 options:
