As overrated as it sounds, it is true that solo trips are a great way of exploring not just a new place but also discovering yourself. Keeping that in mind, we’ve shortlisted some of the safest places in India for travellers to undertake a solo trip.

Happy journey!


In Puducherry, get lost in a world of vibrant French architecture, indulge in the serenity of the beautiful Pondi beaches, find inner peace in Auroville and feast on the best of cuisine influenced by different cultures. You can do all this and much more without any inhibitions about safety and most people here are more than happy to help you out with everything. Pondi is actually one of those places that’s often recommended for a solo trip, especially if you seek spiritual indulgence.

If you're planning for a getaway here soon, these are the top things to do in Puducherry.


Sikkim is the land of postcard-worthy picturesque landscapes, hot springs and locals whose hospitality can by no means be ignored. While the shops might close earlier here than they do in most cities, Sikkim is still one of the preferred Indian destinations for people to begin solo travelling at. Visit the Lake Tsomgo, Yumthang Valley of Flowers, stock on a fine selection of teas at Golden Tips or feast on authentic Korean food at Mu Kimchi, Sikkim is a place just waiting to be explored.

Acres of coffee plantations, lush green mountains for scenic treks, and charming yet affordable ancient cottages are just some of the many interesting things that Coorg in Karnataka has to offer. Be it first-timers, adventure buffs, relaxation seekers or those who just want to experience something different, Coorg will surpass the expectations of every kind of traveller (even the low-on-dough ones).

Darjeeling is West Bengal’s most popular hill station that’s a window to the mighty Kanchenjunga Mountain range and is also famous for its green tea plantations. It is the kind of place that feels secure and has friendly locals who’re ever-ready to help. Travellers here can undertake activities like spotting red pandas or snow leopards in the local zoo, visit Buddhist monasteries, explore the hilltops on mountain bikes and a cup of the calming Darjeeling tea never hurt anybody.

Here is a list of all things fun you can do in Darjeeling.


Shillong’s cottages that reflect the old-world charm of the British era, the Ward’s Lake and the delicious Jadoh and Dohkhlieh are some more reasons for individuals to undertake a solo trip here. Fun fact: The belief that Shillong most likely has the largest surviving matrilineal (women play a dominant role in the society) culture in the world, must in itself offer some kind of reassurance to women travelling to this North Eastern town. 

Don't forget to get a panoramic view of the place from Latkor Peak.


Slowly but steadily, Spiti which was previously an unexplored terrain is now becoming a preferred spot for solo travellers because of its unearthly mountain views and serene Buddhist monasteries that are in some ways, the path to attaining union with the self. Star-gazing, stay in the monasteries with the monks, the many activities like art & craft workshops, skiing, hiking etc. and happy faces are sure to make Lahaul-Spiti a trip of a lifetime.

Psst., heading to the hills? Make sure you've dressed the part. Shop On LBB has some great jackets, sweatshirts and more that you can shop for online.
