When it comes to travelling alone in a country like India, it’s time for women to venture out of their comfort zone. All locales have advantages and disadvantages, no matter how safe they may appear to be on a global scale. Many communities and states, like ours, stand ready to welcome bold lone travellers to come and explore their area without fear of being attacked or harmed. The list of India’s greatest places for solo female travellers is here.
