Have you ever been entwined with the mysteries of the unknown territories? Well, the untold secrets of India will not disappoint you: the forts, beaches and valleys will draw you to the beautiful and enigmatic terrains, with stories of palaces and kings, of history with its mystical stories, painful tragic deaths and a journey never to be forgotten!
Why wait when a single road trip can settle your adrenaline rush for the ‘supernatural’ and the ‘queer, unexplored world’? Here are some of the most haunted adventure trails that will test your endurance while you push boundaries and take twists and turns to reach the spooky realms of the country:
Alwar to Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan: Nearly a 4 to 5 hour journey on a 272.5 km route via NH8, the vastness of the archaeological ruins will entice you with its folklores and dangerous roads. While a road trip on the difficult terrains with negligible civic amenities would be nothing less than a challenge, Bhangarh’s fill of astounding silence among unusual architecture will leave you spellbound. The tough roads, the imposing Aravali Mountains, the beautiful architecture and three huge lakes on the way are not the only things that make it a popular tourist destination, but the tale of a magician unable to woo the local princess and eventually casting a spell on the palace is what makes this place forbidden for venturing after dark. While you make sure you have all that you need before you commence your journey to this eerie location, be certain to check back on the logistics, especially your car’s service and strong tyres that will enable you to rush out if you’re being chased.
Mumbai to Dumas Beach, Surat, Gujarat: The pristine waters of the beach and its black sand set in the backdrop of the Arabian Sea would take you about 4 hour 40 minutes(297 km) drive from the city of dreams. If the roads don’t test you enough, the mysterious beauty of the waters which was believed to have long been used as a Hindu burial ground will. There have been stories of people disappearing mysteriously around the beach, never to be found again. Rest is up to your imagination and courage.
Chennai to Salem, Tamil Nadu: Sathyamangalam forests in Salem have their own mystery stories of ghost apparitions, floating lights, screams deep inside the forest and being the home for the legendary Indian bandit, Veerappan who took several lives and was involved in sandalwood smuggling. However, more troubling is the fact that this 6-hour journey from Chennai to Salem has the stretch of National Highway passing through Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary Corridor – believed to be the most haunted road in Tamil Nadu.
Gangtok to Dow Hills, Darjeeling: While it will not take you a little more than 4 hours to reach the massive hills in Kurseong, Darjeeling, the forest that surrounds this hill is surrounded with tales of a headless boy appearing and disappearing into the forests. Reports of countless murders in these forests amid vast hills, the steep valleys and low grounds make it a scary altitude to aspire for.
While taking trips to these places can bring you some unforgettable adrenaline rush and excitement, the true companion to help you ‘go beyond limits’ in such situations are the tyres of your car because only a tough tyre like JK Tyres can survive these tough roads, making the journey an experience of a lifetime without failing you amidst apprehension and fear.
