En route is a term that is derived from the French language. En route literally means 'in' (English translation for the French counterpart 'en') 'route' (the English and French meanings are the same).

En route has two meanings, each of which are given below, supported with suitable examples:

The first meaning of en route is 'on the way'. An example to explain this meaning would be… En route to the city, John crossed an expansive desert.

The other meaning for en route is 'via'. The example for this meaning would be as follows… I thought of visiting the Himalayas en route Himachal Pradesh in India.

Both the meanings of the term are closely related to each other, as both of them pertain to the aspect of travelling.
