04 – Delhi to Damdama Lake

Delhi, the capital of India, is the hub of everything. If you are visiting Delhi, you might hardly get time to see anything outside Delhi.

You might find it a lot of travelling but it is all about choosing the right time (early morning). Damdama lake is not often chosen as the place to visit, it is mostly for people who love bike rides (due to initial congested travelling) and adventure activities.
