New Delhi: Ever thought of exploring the crowded lanes of Chandni Chowk? Ever wondered what lies amid the horn-blowing, loud noises encircling the well-known Jama Masjid? Ever wanted to bask in old colours of Dilli 6?

Much has been said and heard about Old Delhi’s lanes and by lanes. While there’s no place as lively as Chandni Chowk, it comes as no surprise that walks may be tiresome and can drain out your energy in this scorching heat.

India City Walks in collaboration with Delhi Tourism has come up with an initiative to make this experience less troublesome and help you look at the city from the eyes of a local Dilliwallah.

While they’ve been organising heritage walks on a regular basis, they have also come up with facilities of rickshaws which is aimed at helping solo travellers, women travellers, women with babies and old-age people to experience the true colours of Dilli 6.

From impromptu storytelling sessions to discussions on cleanliness of Chandni Chowk, this tour gives you all. Even the rickshaw-waalahs are keen to share their knowledge about the inner-most alleys and their personal memories of the same.

These rickshaws are custom-made which give you a comfortable travelling feel. While you can carry your own set of bottles to accompany you throughout, there are water bottles provided to you by the team as well. Not just water, but delicious refreshment too!

Out of the many stops that this tour entails, the most fascinating one is the Indraprastha Temple, which is located in one of the cleanest lanes (Naughara) of this bustling part of the capital. This is an alley where colourful havelis were built back in the 18th century. Other pit-stops include Kalan (jewellery), Gulab Singh Johri (capital’s oldest perfumery), Kinari Bazaar (embellishments, border and laces), Nai Sadak (stationary), Town hall and the famous Jalebi wala to give your taste buds a scrumptious treat.

What started as a sleepy morning at Jama Masjid ended up making me curious about stories that every nook and corner of our city offers. If you’re an enthusiast, go for the heritage walk. If you know you’re too-tired-to-walk, take the rickshaw ride. Either way, Dilli 6 has a lot in store for you!

Cost: INR 3000-4000 (Depends on what package you avail: Individual, group or family package)
