What is the best place to go on a solo trip in India?

If you want to plan a solo trip in India, there are innumerable such places which are perfectly suitable for a solo trip. Here is a list of some such places which can give you excellent pleasure on a solo trip in India.

Solo trip to India

Taj Mahal, Agra

If you happen to plan a trip to India, you simply cannot miss exploring the eternal love memorial, Taj Mahal. Located in a small city of Agra, Taj Mahal can simply take your breath away. Agra is just around 4 hours driving distance from Delhi, the capital of India.

Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal was built in the memory of the beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. It took a whopping 20 years to build and according to the legends, the construction workers who built the memorial got their hands dissected so that they lose their ability to construct something as similar as the Taj Mahal ever again.

Keeping aside such an interesting story, it is a different feeling to watch the Taj Mahal in front of the eyes. It is truly a magnificent structure built with white marble. The sheer magnificence of the memorial will make you dumbstruck for some time.

Also a suggested tour will be Jaipur Agra tour package for 4 days as here one can also visit the heritage sites of Pink city Jaipur along with the beauty of Taj Mahal.

Star gazing at Himachal Pradesh

There can be only a handful of such experience which is as enthralling as the star gazing. There is so much to see and discover from the universe that stares at us from outer space with a shining light. One such wonderful place from where you can go star gazing is the Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh. Spiti Valley being a deserted mountain valley, it is the ideal place for such hobbies like star gazing.



Jaisalmer, the Golden City of Rajasthan is a must visit for any solo traveler. It is the gateway to the Great Indian Desert and can provide you with a sneak peek at the wonderful and vibrant desert life of Rajasthan. Go for a camel ride through the desert and you will cherish the experience forever in your life.

As this is our 2nd destination which we have suggested in this post then I will also suggest you to check out Chetram Voyages, a tour operator from Jaipur who are rated as one of the best locak firm offering Rajasthan tour packages at good price.

Smart Traveler

Smart Traveler

So what does Triangle Guide means? Well as per me there are 3 most important aspects for a traveler journey. First is accommodation, second is attractions to see and 3rd to learn or understand the culture of the city.

So in this post at arownd.net which is my favorite travel blog, I want to divide Delhi in 3 parts and would love to share a view of the city by a local.

Believe me, this triangle guide will be the best and especially for those who are doing some research before traveling to New Delhi.

The Old City of New Delhi

Well New Delhi is the name given by British India but still one must visit the Old Delhi. Old Delhi consists of:-

  • Chandhni Chowk
  • Red Fort
  • Jama Masjid
  • Fatehpuri Masjid
  • Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib

And all of these are the jewels of the city which will assist you in understand the culture of the city.

The new version of New Delhi

Well the new version of this city is at South Delhi. Southern part of Delhi is rated as posh area, big shopping malls, luxury hotels and most important my hotel (Hotel GTC) is also in South Delhi.

Plus there are some amazing heritage attractions too. So if you are here then you must visit:-

  • Lotus Temple
  • Qutub Minar
  • Saket Select City Mall
  • Indian Habitat Centre
  • Lodhi Garden

And lot more shopping destinations. So if you are those solo luxury travelers, then south Delhi is best for you.

The Lutyen Zone

Let us assume that you have landed at Delhi airport with your eyes closed and then I make you stand in Lutyen Zone and after this when you will open your eyes, your 1st impression will be… where is Delhi?

Well Lutyen Zone is a large part of capital which is only confined to central government of India. But this is the most, Greenest Part of the city.I once tried to get an office here, but its not open for private firms. Now here you can pay a visit to:-

  • India Gate
  • Rashtrapati Bhavan
  • Connaught Place

As per me, a local, living in Lutyen Zone is impossible but not visiting it will be a foolish mistake.

So with this our triangle tour of Delhi is finished. If you have any questions then just write them in the comment box below. I would love to reply them.
