Lodi Garden Trail is a 1.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near the city of New Delhi that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
One of the world’s greatest urban parks, the treetops are aflutter with birds: black drongos, Indian tree pies, mynahs, red-vented bulbuls. The park is also a functional playground: joggers in track-suits rest on crumbling mausoleum stairs; yogis do sun salutations beside the pond; vendors proffer glasses of cool jal jeera—salty limeade with cumin and mint—while picnicking families keep an eye on greedy macaques. (Wild monkeys are a growing nuisance in Delhi’s parks; the city has hired a corps of a hundred monkey-catchers to solve the problem.) Address: Lodi Rd. New Delhi India Phone: 91-11-2464-7005
