Places In India You Must Travel Alone

''Whenever you shop alone, you shop the best. The same goes for travel!''

Travelling Solo is an experience in itself. It involves exploring new places, meeting new people, overcoming fears and discovering more about oneself. The best part of travelling alone is that you are the planner unlike in the company of family and friends, where you’re bound to consider other’s choices and preferences before deciding on each move. When alone, you can do whatever you want to. Go wild, go crazy. After all, no one’s watching. So what are you waiting for? Take a break from your hectic schedule and plan a solo trip to one of these places now to reinvent and rejuvenate!


KASOL
Also known Mini Israel, Kasol is one happening place you can’t afford to miss. And when we say happening, we mean the place is full of youth life. Kasol is a village located in the state of Himachal Pradesh, northern India. It is situated in Parvati Valley, on the banks of the Parvati River. It is located 42 km east of Kullu, on the way between Bhuntar to Manikaran.
Kasol is a perfect destination when you don’t want to indulge in anything, and the whole idea of a vacation is to just sit back and relax. It’s certainly not a place to freak out with family, and so you won’t find noisy families and kids around. The place is full of Israelis, some of who are believed to have settled there for over years now. No doubt, one gets to see Hebrew language banners throughout the valley.
The scenic beauty of this place draws backpackers in large numbers every year. Kasol is also a base for Himalayan trekking, to SarPass, Yanker Pass, Pin Parbati Pass and Khiriganga. Most of the trekking is organized by the Youth Hostel of India


PUSHKAR
Pushkar is not as secluded as Kasol because of its religious value, and is flooded with tourists especially between the months of November and January. This is also the time when the world-famous camel fair is held in the town. The best time to travel alone to Pushkar is anytime after January if the aim is to just relax in peace. April onwards the mercury temperatures start to rise in Rajasthan that makes the place unbearably hot.
You may also come across people who are ever ready to bother others with something or the other. So, opt for a hotel that is a bit away from the noisy crowd. Varaha ghat that enjoys proximity to the main ghat (where the maha aarti is held) will be a good stay option. You can always walk up to the ghat in fewer steps to enjoy the evening aarti.
Pushkar is home to the only Brahma temple in India, which is why you won’t find non-vegetarian food here. And just like Kasol, Pushkar is too full of Israeli settlements. The place has a couple of rooftop restaurants with comfortable floor seating that serve lip-smacking Israeli and Italian cuisines such as pizzas, pastas, falafel and humus wraps.
It’s a city with narrow passages and less public transport, so make sure you travel light. You can always make friends on the way via social networking sites to share cross-country experiences, photographs and even rooms.


ZIRO VALLEY
Visit to Ziro Valley in Arunachal Pradesh is a trip to reminisce for life. This picture perfect place with lush greenery, rich rice-fields, weaving rivulets, diverse flora and fauna, and rustic habitats is surely going to take your breath away. Its charm is enough to accompany you on the trip. This perfectly crafted god’s country is inhabited by local tribes who follow their own customs and traditions. Travelling solo will help your delve deeper into their culture and lifestyle. The place has also been named as a World Heritage site for its stunning natural beauty.
The place can be visited anytime between February and October. Cool summers and cooler winters are characteristics of Ziro. All you need to do is board a bus from Itanagar to Ziro valley or board a train for Tezpur station and from there hire a bus or taxi to reach the destination. Avoid heavy monsoon months as it will restrict your movement.
Ziro, popularly known as Apatani Plateau, is home to some of the biggest and the tallest pine trees in the whole of Apatani Valley. Silver fir trees, orchids, stunning ranges of bamboo and ferns are some of the trees found here.


PUDUCHERRY
Pondicherry lies on the south-east coast of India in the state of Tamil Nadu Puducherry. Also famous as French Riviera of the East, Puducherry is a beautiful escape from the drab, noisy city life. This quaint little town has retained its old-world French charm and is known for its large boulevards, gothic churches, heritage monuments, pristine beaches, brightly painted houses, and of course luscious French cuisines.
Many people choose this destination to get spiritually connected. It is home of the Sri Aurobindo ashram, the base for sojourners of yoga and enlightenment. You can stay put in one of these ashrams and hire a two wheeler or a cycle to shuttle from one place to the other. Mornings are pleasant and seaside is filled with walkers and sunrise watchers.
Take a long walk by the beach or bask in the glory of colonial architecture dominating the town forgetting all your present and future worries. Your trip will be incomplete if you don’t try local cuisines of Puducherry with traces of French and Dutch flavours. Try spicy steak seasoned with black pepper, savory crepes served with chutney and stuffed cabbage.
Stay is not at all a problem in Puducherry as there are lots to options in both budget and luxury stay. Just do a bit of research before finalising on the same. Availability in ashrams could be tight during peak seasons. Do a prior phone check.

KAZA
A wanderer’s delight, Kaza in Spiti valley will disconnect you from the outside world. This 150 km long valley is scattered with small villages and monasteries, and enclosed by soaring peaks crowned with snow and is one of the most sparsely populated regions of India. The major rivers of the valley are Lingti and Pin which combine to form the primary Spiti river.
Rough terrains in some stretches make movement slow within Spiti Valley. So, make sure you take out a week at least to do this place at ease. Finding transportation is not difficult in Kaza. You just have to book it a day in advance. The locals take you around and also serve as very good guides.
Key Monastary, Kibber and Gette villages, Donkar Monastary and Pin valley are a must visit. You can also drive to Tabo which is only 47kms from Kaza but because of the road condition it can take anywhere between 2-4 hrs.
From Manali, buses ply daily on Manali -Rohtang pass-Kunzum pass -Kaza route. The bus leaves Manali at 5 am. The other way to get to Kaza can be by sharing a taxi which will cost anywhere between Rs 500 and Rs 100. The rates are not fixed so the better your bargaining skills are, the lesser it will cost you. The conditions of the roads are not very good and is not for those having a the weak heart. Except the roads, every other thing is just as should be, untouched & pristine.
On the route you will cross two high altitude passes, Rohtang Pass(3980mts) and Kuzjum Pass(4551mts). The journey is an unforgettable experience.


TAWANG
Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh is truly a traveller’s delight. Not known to many, Tawang houses India’s some of the largest monasteries and has immense Buddhist influence in its culture and lifestyle. In monasteries you will come across monks mostly engrossed in prayers. It’s a perfect location for those looking to spend quality time with oneself and wanting to understand Buddhist culture closely.
Tawang has everything to offer from trekking paths, hot water springs, and adventure activities like rock climbing, rafting and paragliding to flora and fauna, history, religion and architecture. Music and dance too are a key part of this place, which see equal participation of both men and women. What fascinates and attract travellers most to this tourist spot is its natural landscape and beauty, which wears altogether a mystic look when draped with snow during winters (December-January).
This tranquil hill station shares boundaries with Tibet in the northern side, Kameng in the east and Bhutan in the south-west. It is also known as the land of Monpas as the Monpa tribes dominate this region. Don’t forget to check on the entry permits for this place.
