For humans, a partner is required; but solitude– well it’s an aspect that we find desirable at times in our life. Solitude enables us to introspect, evaluate, motivate ourselves, brings about a change in perspectives and offers fresh dimensions to solution. If not, then tag some friends along! So here we present some of the destinations in India that you won’t regret exploring as bachelors. Here’s the list.

Dehra Dun-Mussoorie

Rains and lush green mountains are the promises of the two towns that are based in the lap of the Himalayas. Given the fact that a majority of Ruskin Bond’s creations have taken form in these places, it is only natural to expect that the nature here would inspire you to express yourself in some manner. There are waterfalls like Kempty falls in Mussoorie, while several museums like the National Forest Museum are lined up in Dehra Dun. A trip to cover both the stations is recommended, because the roads are resplendent with nature.

Road trips might be fun with partner but they’re have a different depth as a single. Get a bike, a backpack, navigate the terrains. The landscapes of Ladakh offer a serenity, under the blue crystal skies which is reflected in the lakes, the barren stretches that echo nothing. A recommended trip to undertake in bachelorhood. The frozen river trek in Chadar, Zanskar valley is yours to call.

Now this one would better be with your gang of friends (or a best friend would suffice), and not recommended for solitary trip. Why? Cause it’s seemingly the most famous haunted place in India!  Now you’re not a exorcist, are you?

Gokarna

The temple town and favoured hippie habitat can be effectively explored as a single. There are beaches to lie upon, streets to navigate, temples to witness, cups of chai to be sipped and all these can be done without much interference. A perfect place to be, as a single.

Roopkund

But that’s not all to it.

Famous for it’s beaches and parties, Goa is a hot favorite for any bachelor party. But the beach life is just one facade of what Goa offers. There are several churches, cathedrals like the Se Cathedral which exude magnificence. There are several varieties of fish dishes available in the cuisine. The streets offer rather interesting views, since there is a tinge of Portuguese at place. Panjim, Palolem, Panaji are some of the popular destinations.
