En Route to Haridwar - Along the Ganga Canal

We left for Haridwar at 6:30 in the morning from Rohini and decided to take a new route which is named as the Kawaria road. On Loni road we took a left turn to Bhopura and we reached the Ganga Canal near Murad Nagar. This narrow road runs along the Ganga Canal and runs Parallel to NH-58. We joined NH-58 after Muzaffar Nagar.


The road is free of traffic and is very scenic though it is not recommended to take this route after dark because of the risk of running into Dacoits.

The road is not too great at places. See the potholes.

Haridwar alternate route

it is not safe in dark hours, not even after 6 PM. Many planned robberies I know happened on this thin road with people in Scorpios and safaris. Moreover, the risk of jumping your car in the canal is always there is driving at 60+ speed.


Advice -
I have used alternate route many time but I do NOT suggest this to anyone. road conditions is not good & forest road & narrow road. It is risky & planned robberies route. Never use this route after 5pm.
