Ride along on a top quality cycle, exploring the rich cultural heritage of one of the oldest places in India – monuments, chai, breakfast and fresh air! Tour Distance is 12-15 Km.
At the time of its construction in the 17th Century, Old Delhi was arguably, the most prosperous and beautiful city in the world. Today, when you pass through its 400 year old web of alleys held together with great big meshes of electric cables and infused with the smell of brewing tea and simmering breakfast curry, you see a mind boggling co-existence of the past and the future, competing for your attention.
Emerging from this rainforest, thick with traditional architecture- typical of Shah Jahan’s time, you will find yourself in a Delhi of another time while you also see the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Spice Market and tranquil Civil Lines, the former British colonial area as a sharp contrast to hectic Old Delhi.
