7 Essential Hindi Road Trip Songs Everyone Should Have In Their Playlist

You can tell a lot about a person by seeing the songs in their playlist.

Everyone has a different taste in music. Some love Kishore Kumar and some Badshah, some love “Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya” and some love “Hookah Bar”, some… wait, I think you got what I’m trying to say in here in this must-have travel Hindi road trip songs list.

Now imagine, you’re solo-traveling to Shimla on a bus. You’re sitting on the window seat, from where the visuals/scenery is so beautiful, so surreal that you don’t even want to blink your eyes for a second.

But something is missing…


To add a feather to your hat, you wear your earphones and play your playlist on the mobile. But the question is, doesn’t matter what music taste you have, are you enjoying your journey?

It’s good if you are but if not, then here are 7 essential and best Hindi road trip songs that I think everyone should have in their playlist:

  1. Safarnama
  2. Qaafirana
  3. Aao Milon Chalen
  4. Phir Se Ud Chala
  5. Iktara
  6. Khaabon Ke Parindey
  7. Ilahi

Let’s dive into each of these songs a bit deeper. Here we go :

1. Safarnama – Tamasha

Lucky Ali ko jitna praise karo utna kam hai.

All of his songs always set up our mood and leave us with a ton of positive vibes. The same goes for this song!

Put on your earphones while you’re traveling, sitting on a window seat, and play this song. You won’t only feel energetic and excited for the rest of your trip but also start contemplating your journey.

And hey, don’t forget to lip-sync the song with Lucky Ali’s “hmmmmm” to feel the feels!

2. Qaafirana – Kedarnath

Hearing the very first line of this Amit Trivedi’s gem, “In Vaadiyo Me…” makes you get lost in the beautiful valley of Kedarnath.

Also, apart from making you drool to travel and have a trip to Kedarnath, this song will make you feel terrifically good on your journey.

3. Aao Milon Chalen – Jab We Met

Sung by Shaan, this song tells you to keep traveling!

Traveling without any plan. Trying everything on the way. Roaming around the city. Talking with the locals. Stealing someone’s bicycle and then returning it. Basically, feeling every moment of the journey.

It depicts, “Part of Journey is the End” and it for sure give us travel goals.

4. Phir Se Ud Chala – Rockstar

Now, no one can ever deny this one!

This is a journey based song and this must be in everyone’s playlist while traveling.

Just imagine being on a road surrounded by mountains and fog. You can see the snow falling from your car’s window and then, you hear these magical lines, “Door Door Log Baag Meelon Door Yeh Vaadiyan…

Isn’t it perfect to just get lost in the beauty of those mountains?

So, I highly recommend this hindi song for a road trip in the hilly areas or mountains.

It’s something I can listen to on loop for my whole life, without getting bored!

5. Iktara – Wake Up Sid

This isn’t a travel song but the vibes this song has will, just like Sid (Ranbir’s character in the movie) makes you want to roam around the streets and beaches of Mumbai.

Clicking beautiful pictures of everything around you and… I just find myself lost in my road trip journey while listening to this song.

6. Khaabon Ke Parindey – ZNMD

What Hrithik felt in this song, I want to feel the same!

Fall in love with everything I see. Enjoy the smell of mud. Love everything around me. Feel like I’m in fairytale land. Have no regrets in life. No tension of work.

I just want to travel around like there’s some magic in the air. And never want that trip to end.

It’s a perfect perfect hindi driving song that one can ask for.

“Fikrein Jo Thi, Peeche Reh Gayi
Nikle Unse Aage Hum”

7. Ilahi – YJHD

Do I even have to say anything about this song? Ranbir, no doubt, since his debut, has been inspiring us to travel.

Any list of Bollywood travel songs is incomplete without “Ilahi“.

This song and movie ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ gave most of us a goal to find a job that pays for traveling to new cities, countries, world every month. It literally was(is) my dream.

“Kal Pe Sawaal Hai, Jeena Filhaal Hai”

So, these are the best Hindi road trip songs (my favorite ones) that I think everyone should have in their playlist but I’m sure, as each and every one of us has a different taste in music, there are tons of such must-haves Hindi travel songs out there.
