In general, walking in Delhi is unpleasant. There are always tons of people going to and fro and the streets are full from dawn to well after dusk. However, the Rajpath is a quieter and nicer place to go if you want to walk through the city. The four-kilometer walk takes you from the Rashtrapati Bhavan (home of the President of India) to the India Gate triumphal arch. As it makes its way between the two monuments, the Rajpath is surrounded by gardens and fountains where children swim in hot weather. You'll see people walking with elephants and you can take a ride if you want. There also aren't as many beggars in the area due to the heightened security surrounding the president's house.
