The capital city of India is so strategically located that you are not too far from the Shivalik Hills and Himalayan mountains. Most hill stations are at a distance of 300 to 600 kilometers from Delhi. You can either drive up to a hill station or take an overnight train to be in the lap of hills. There are plenty of weekend getaways from Delhi but when it comes to adventure getaways, only a few offer hair-raising activities.
You have Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand with beautiful hill stations and some really offbeat destinations where getting there in itself is no less than an adventure. If you can stretch a bit, you have Gulmarg and Leh Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir.
If leisurely walks and short treks are what give you a high, you can virtually go to any hill station in North India. But for specialized adventure activities like rafting, rock climbing, bungee jumping, skiing and paragliding, check the adventure weekend getaways given below.
