3 Top Travel Destinations for Solo Women Travelers in India
Intent on visiting India and taking in the country’s many attractions? If you are a woman traveling alone, here is a guide to the three best tourist spots in India.
How to Reach
From Puducherry’s domestic airport, you can reach Bengaluru on a daily basis (except Wednesdays). The city of Puducherry is easily accessible by road from both Chennai and Bangalore.
It is possible to reach Puducherry by train via a line that branches off from the 5-way junction at Chennai and Viluppuram. Villupuram has a train station, and it’s the one closest to Pondicherry.
What to Do in Puducherry
In Puducherry, you can feel the influence of France everywhere you look. Tree-lined boulevards and charming colonial landmarks are on display. There are also countless miles of pristine, undeveloped beaches and canals.
Puducherry, formerly known as Pondicherry, is a Union Territory in India that is divided into four separate districts: the Puducherry district, the Karaikal district, the Yanam district, and the Mahé district, all of which border the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea, respectively.
Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) lived in Puducherry, and it is still the location of the Ashram of Sri Aurobindo today. In the city’s outskirts can be found Auroville, the Mother’s experimental city that attracts people from all over the world.
Tourists can choose from a wide variety of religious buildings, landmarks, green spaces, and mosques.
Travel to Pakyong Airport by Plane. It takes 1 hour and 15 minutes (or 28.7 kilometers) to get to Gangtok from Pakyong Airport through the Gangtok – Rangpo Road. In a car, Siliguri can be reached from Gangtok via National Highway 10.
Kalimpong and Darjeeling, two hill stations in northern West Benga, are linked to towns in southern and western Sikkim. For those who prefer to take the train, the closest major stations are Siliguri and New Jalpaiguri, both of which are located in the state of West Bengal.
What to Do in Sikkim
Sikkim is a state in Northeast Asia that shares borders with the Tibetan regions of the north and northeast, Bhutan, Nepal, and West Bengal. Sikkim has fewer people than any other state in India and is the second smallest.
Sikkim is well-known for its abundance of flora and fauna, as well as its alpine and subtropical climates and the presence of Kangchenjunga, the highest peak in India and the third highest on Earth.
Sikkim is India’s primary source of cardamom and the world’s second-largest producer of spice, behind only Guatemala.
The capital of Sikkim is Gangtok, and it is well worth a trip. Gangtok sits at an altitude of 1,650 meters in the eastern Himalayas. The town is surrounded by hills, and the snowy peaks of the Himalayas rise majestically in the background.
To the west of the city, you can see Mount Kanchenjunga, which is the third-highest peak in the world.
Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim, is well-located for tourists because of its proximity to the Himalayas and its pleasant climate throughout the year. The area near Gangtok is very wooded.
How to Reach
There are direct flights to Jodhpur from both Delhi and Mumbai, and the airport is located only 5 km from the city center. Roads connect Jodhpur to the rest of the country’s major urban centers.
Traveling to Jodhpur is easy thanks to the extensive rail network that links the city to India’s major population centers and hubs.
Things to Do in Jodhpur
Jodhpur, in the Indian state of Rajasthan, is the state’s second-largest city and second metropolitan area. Once home to a princely state with the same name, it now serves as a city. Jodhpur, now a part of Rajasthan, was once the capital of the Kingdom of Marwar.
Tourists flock to Jodhpur to see its many beautiful palaces, forts, and temples that contrast with the surrounding harsh Thar Desert. The residents of Rajasthan and the rest of India refer to it as both the Blue city and the Sun City.
There are a lot of temples, lakes, forts, and monuments. For example, the Mehrangarh Fort, the Umaid Bhawan Palace, the Jaswant Thada, and the Ghanta Ghar, or Clock Tower, are the city of Jodhpur’s most visited landmarks.
Fort Auwa, Mandore, the Kaylana Lake and Garden, Balsamand Lake, the Mandaleshwar Mahadev Temple (Mandalnath), the Ratanada Ganesh Temple, the ISKCON Temple, Sardar Samand Lake and Palace, the Masooria Hills, the Veer Durgadas Smarak, and Bhim Bhadak Cave are all within easy driving distance.
Markets selling food, antiques, clothing, and shoes (known locally as jodhpuri mojari) are also popular tourist destinations in Jodhpur.
