Well there are several destinations in India that can prove to be best choices to plan your solo trips. Let us have a look at these places in India that provide the best experiences for solo trips.

The entire state of Rajasthan provides travelers with a royal experience altogether because of the numerous spots of the Maharaja heritage to visit.

Many of the usual travelers base their travel plans on some bollywood movie that has idealized the place for travelling. Bunny and Naina's Udaipur adventures had definitely made many people plan their trips to this city. But there was no exaggeration in the movie about the royalty and rich heritage of the city of Udaipur.
In fact for many travelers, the main attraction to travel solo to Udaipur was the famous Zostel that provides accommodation right next to the Lake Pichola, with the best sunset view. Besides, there are several other places that a person can totally visit by himself and enjoy their own company at such as the Udaipur City Palace, the Fateh Sagar Lake and the Sajjangarh Palace. The ancient temple of Eklingji Temple is worth visiting. However, today the original temple and idol cannot be observed since they were destroyed during the invasions of the Delhi Sultanate.
The ancient city of Hampi

Again in case of Maharashtrian travelers, the recent Marathi movie of 'Hampi' has been an effective factor in enhancing the travel plans for Hampi among them. However, the beauty of the city is well known to all of us since ages and travelling to hampi all alone cannot be defined better than cherry on the cake.
The nature of the place demands for a peaceful mindset while traveling in Hampi to understand the details of the city and absorb the mood of Hampi. The fact that the city is situated on the bank of river Tungbhadra itself is evident enough to explain the significance of planning a 'solo' trip there. The things one will experience and observe in a solo trip to Hampi will never be experienced while in a group.
