Majnu-ka-tilla, Delhi’s Tibetan quarter, provides a peaceful escape from India when you need it most. The food, the people and their lifestyle will all make you think you’re further east than you are. Wongden House is nothing flashy, but very clean and well-run – and so popular they often won’t take bookings. Beware the black dust if there’s construction along the river, and Delhi’s feistiest mosquitoes.
Cost: 500 rupees for a double with fan and separate bathroom.
Finding it: 15a New Tibetan Colony, Majnu-ka-tilla. (See map below.)
