Travelling solo is fun, and it would prove to be the most exhilarating experience of your lifetime, especially since you are your own boss. This is probably one of the reasons why you will find a whole lot of solo male travelers and backpackers in India. Mysteriously, there aren’t many itineraries and packages planned for men. Is it because the male population doesn’t really bother about itineraries, but would rather prefer to sling their bags over their shoulders, and just head where their heart desires? Probably yes, probably no!
If you are a man and would love to travel solo, here are some places in India you shouldn’t miss. This is a mix of known and unknown places, so you will definitely enjoy reading about them.
Kodaikkanal, Tamil Nadu
Kodaikkanal is situated right in the south of the country, in Tamil Nadu district. It is a beautiful hill station and a famous honeymoon destination. But solo travelers would enjoy it too, because there are lots of places to trek and have fun. Never miss the aromatic filter coffee after a fulfilling trekking experience.
It is an offbeat destination, and a binding beauty that you cannot resist. The snow-capped Himalayas, the mystical meadows and the thick forest trails would take you to a totally different world.
Patan in Gujarat is a World Heritage Site and it exudes an old-world charm that you cannot resist. It was once the capital of Gujarat, especially during the medieval times, so if you love to trudge along historical sites with a backpack slung over your shoulder, this is a must-visit place.
