I love travelling – so much that I make it a point that every 4-5months, I take a trip. The trip could be anywhere, but I really need to get away. And I’ve realised that travelling alone in India as a woman is not the easiest and safest thing to do. I mean, India doesn’t exactly hit the list of the safest places in the world and getting permission from parents – good luck with that. However, things are changing and now more and more women solo travellers are exploring the country on their own. So, this one’s for all my fellow travellers who are either already planning their monsoon trips or are looking for inspiration to decide where to go next.
Trust me when I say this, there are many places in India that are standing with open arms to welcome women solo travellers to come and explore their lands without worrying much about their safety – especially during monsoon season.
Wondering what those places are? Check out the list below of places women solo travellers can travel to in monsoon in India:
The months of monsoon are what people there call summer since during these months the climate is warm – just like the people there. From the gorgeous barren land landscapes to the surreal beauty of Pangong lake, there are so many reasons why you should visit this place at least once in your life.
Now, I know most people are wondering why Goa is on the list since beaches become inaccessible during monsoon season. But, as someone who comes from Goa, let me tell you there is so much more to the place than just beaches. From the beautiful waterfalls to lushious green forests – the place is a gold mine for women solo travellers who are looking to relax, trek, and explore, all at the same time.
During the months of monsoon, snow starts melting and a lot of places in and around Lahaul and Spiti open up – providing the travellers with more beautiful landscapes to explore. The enchanting vies, warm people, and surreal mountain terrain makes this place a must, must-visit place.
Ooty this time of the year gets less crowded making it the perfect place for the solo women travellers who want to enjoy the romantic, chilled climate of the place all by themselves. The pleasant weather opens up a lot of attractions for the tourists and the overall scenic experience is worth getting a bit wet for.
One of the best seasons to visit Udaipur is definitely monsoon and that’s because thanks to the rain, many of the lakes are replenished. All the magnificent places in the royal city are just waiting to be explored by women solo travellers as it is one of the safest places in India as per a lot of women.
