The year has almost come to a close! So why not celebrate by pampering yourself? Step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself in the best way possible to have the time of your life. Embark on a solo trip to gain some insight and treat yourself for all that you have accomplished this year. Here are some of the best destinations for solo travellers that will undoubtedly offer you crazy life changing experiences and cherishable memories.
1. Manali to Leh
Take on a fascinating and equally challenging journey from Manali to Leh. If you are a biker, the trip will offer you so much more than you bargained for. Offering one of the best routes to ride in the world, the Manali-Leh highway stretches over 475 kms and is a must experience journey.
As you start on with the trip, you get to witness the most beautiful view ever- snowcapped mountains, barren roads and the captivating scenic beauty which will never make you want to go back.
You can also head to the Sangam valley, Leh shanti Stupa and Leh Palace to make your solo travel worthwhile.
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are known for their sprawling beaches, dense forests and adventurous water sports. The lush green forests, abundant flora and fauna, clear waters and mangrove-lined creeks of these picturesque islands lure travelers around the country and beyond.
Go scuba diving in the waters of Bay of Bengal for an exciting adventure. As you plunge into the eleven to fifteen feet deep into the turquoise beach, you are transported to a hidden water kingdom. Swim with the rich aquatic life and watch rare sponges and corals that you never knew existed.
Water lovers can also get on to snorkeling and you can always go for a long walk and unwind yourself in the Islands of Andaman. Being slightly cut off from the rest of the nation, Andaman is the ideal destination for solo travelers seeking solitude.
Give yourself the opportunity of a unique experience by camping in the midst of an endless desert. As you tread through the endless stretches of deserts, there’s nothing but the view of boundless sand and sky that appear to blend in the distance.
Visit Jaipur to explore its royal forts and palaces or head to Udaipur to sit besides its calming lakes. Be a part of the rich Rajputana culture at Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. Explore the streets to enjoy the authentic Rajasthani cuisine.
Walking along the narrow lanes you may also come across an impromptu folk musical performance in the lanes of Rajasthan. Shop for some exclusive traditional handicrafts and hand loom to carry as souvenirs from your memorable solo trip.
Situated in the lush of Western Ghats, the enchanting forests of Coorg offer the long yearned luxury of stillness to every traveller. The expansive green patches and landscape of Coorg will surely take away your breath away.
Hike up to the city’s cascades and waterfalls. If you seek adventure, go river rafting to get your dose of adrenaline.
Walk through the perfectly manicured lanes of coffee plantations, inhaling its pleasant aroma permeating the air
6. Trek to Markha Valley
The Markha Valley is the most popular trekking sites in Ladakh. Popularly called the ‘tea house trek’, it is here that you tread through one of the highest plateaus offering a panoramic view of the Ladakh and Zanskar ranges.
Explore the remote regions and villages of Ladakh on this trek. Stop to talk to the local nomadic clans and gain friends along the way. Get in touch with the Buddhist scriptures and teachings in the quaint monasteries dotting the region.
Experience tranquility at the must visit, Pangong Lake. Magnetic Hill, famous for its physics defying phenomenon where vehicles, when parked at a marked location beat the force of gravity to move upwards on the hill, cannot be ignored.
There’s a little piece of France in India and it’s called Pondicherry. With a nostalgic French-esque reflecting in its architecture and settlements, this beach town is perfect for a solo adventure.
Practice the ancient Yoga in Aurobindo Ashram or take a walk along its quirky streets. Pondicherry is home to some beautiful beaches like the Paradise Beach, which is perfect for relaxing or engaging in water sports.
Pamper yourself in this ‘French Riviera of East’. Taste some authentic local or French cuisine in the popular cafes. Do carry some souvenirs from this trip to remember you solo odyssey.
So don’t let anything hold you back from exploring the world with your eyes. Set out for an exciting solo adventure across these cities and make everlasting memories.
