Designed by notable English architects and proclaimed India's capital in 1931, New Delhi sits in the middle of a sprawling metropolitan area with a population of over 25 million.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Chandni Chowk and People Tree. Get some historical perspective at Humayun's Tomb and India Gate. Take a break from New Delhi with a short trip to Viktorianz in Gurugram (Gurgaon), about 1h 10 min away. Spend the 9th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Gandhi Smriti, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, take a stroll through Hauz Khas Village, and make a trip to Red Fort (Lal Quila).

Plan my trip to New Delhi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to New Delhi. In June, plan for daily highs up to 45°C, and evening lows to 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel to Shimla.
