1. You’ll learn how To Thrive Outside Your Comfort Zone
As you welcome unfamiliar places and situations when you travel, you go out of your comfort zone. A solo trip may even surprise you when you see yourself not just surviving, but thriving outside your comfort zone, which is essential for growth.

2. You’ll learn To Be Decisive
When you travel alone, you automatically learn to be decisive which is not possible if you are traveling with a group or partner. Traveling solo forces you to rely on yourself truly. You don’t depend on anyone and also realize that you can make good choices without taking help from others.

3. You’ll be recharged
Traveling alone will allow you to get enough rest and relaxation you desire. If you travel solo, you don’t have to worry about setting your alarm if you don’t really want to. You can take time to nurture your mind, and body in the ways.

4. You Will Meet New People
The best part of traveling alone is you’ll be meeting new people. Since you’ll be alone, you are more likely to strike up conversations with strangers. And, meeting people from different backgrounds can be inspiring. You may meet some amazing people in the locality or other travellers like yourself; either way you’ll end up making new friends during the journey.

Traveling solo gives you ample amount of time for self-discovery. You can simply sit and think about what your priorities and passions. You and your naked soul can then find out what really matters to you in your life.

The scorching heat is driving travel enthusiasts to explore India’s northern belt for some respite, but it is leading to over-tourism. Be different and stay away from the rush by visiting destinations which may be less frequented, but offer panoramic views and exciting experiences.

A slew of affordable international destinations are wooing Indian travellers, but within India, there are myriad options of summer havens that are perfect for a vacation.

Rashmi Chadha, Founder, Wovoyage, told IANS: “Over-tourism is currently happening in north India because most destinations have frequent visits by travellers and new destinations get left out due to their infrastructure which is not much developed for mass tourism.”

Chadha, whose travel startup is aimed at women travellers, said people must explore offbeat locations, and the rise of homestays and small guesthouses which can be easily booked online, is only giving the option a push.

“I”ll suggest Karnataka can be a good option to travel in June. There are places like Karwar and Agumbe, which is even called as Cherrapunji of South. As an alternative to overcrowded destinations in India, I would suggest to explore Khajjiar in Himachal Pradesh, Siliguri in West Bengal, Palani Hills on the border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

“Instead of beaches in Goa, try to visit the region of Daman and Diu, and instead of Alleppey in Kerala, go to Munroe Island. Enjoy nature and peace in holidays,” she suggested.

According to Rajeev Kale, President and Country Head – Holiday, MICE, Visa, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd, there is quite a demand for beach destinations.

“While hill stations continue to remain popular, this year we have also seen a 15 to 18 per cent demand over the last year for beach destinations and amusement parks as well. Beaches such as Kovalam in Kerala, Goa, coastal Maharashtra, Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu have seen an increase in demand,” Kale told IANS.

As for a quick getaway, families are also looking at adventure and amusement parks like Imagica in Maharashtra and VGP Universal Kingdom and Wonderla parks in southern India across cities like Kochi, Chennai and Bengaluru.

“Apart from these, pilgrim and high altitude destinations like Char Dham, coupled with adventure activities in Haridwar and Rishikesh have seen a strong uptake,” he added.

But the pressure of tourist rush in the Uttarakhand hills this season is already taking a toll as it is leading to crammed up roads and highways.
