City of Walks


Walk through heritage sites, ruins, Mughal monuments, Lutyens' New Delhi, rambling green parks with trees from all over the world and negotiate your way through bustling Old Delhi lanes side-stepping goats and vendors. Delhi is made for walks and the city has a slew of lovers who act as guides and story-tellers re-telling the great city's history, legends and the heroic tales.

You can walk through Delhi with a book on the best walks here... follow the route armed with a book and hunt through Old Delhi shops for old Mughal havelis and ancient Urdu books. Quests are aplenty here and walks the best way to go about it.

Guided food walks are great to savour the best vegetarian cuisine or the best Mughalai ones. 

The truth is, Delhiites love to show off their ruins, bazaars, crafts and food and some of the walking or bicycle tours are totally free! Karma India travel writer, Shyama, particularly enjoyed her free walk with Pradip Kishen, author of the surprise best-seller, "Trees of Delhi'. "Nothing quite comes close to a tree walk with the author/tree curator, who lives in Lutyens Delhi, and his quips on the tree's journey to India via the Mughals or the British", goes her review.

  • City of Gardens & Stately Buildings

    New is a bit of a misnomer as you will discover as you explore this ancient Mughal city and its rich arboreal heritage on foot. Take a guided walk through the city before browsing the warren like evening market...

  • Going the Sufi way to devotion

    Enjoy a true medieval Delhi experience from the old lanes to the Dargah where the dervishes whirl in a trance to the frenzied qawwali of the singers. A guided walk to this event is ideal to learn about Sufisim, the history of the mosque and sample the famed Mughlai cuisine of the area.

  • Walking through Old Delhi

    Old Delhi is where you go for those 'Incredible India' photographs that make it to magazine covers. Peel off layers of modernisation from the crisis-crossing network of electric lines, the mushroomy satellite dishes from every window and the cell phone toting merchants to discover bustling ancient streets straight out of an Arabian Nights story!
