Riding solo has its perks, yeah it is sad that this valentine you are still single and all your friends are going out with their guys on dinner with those fancy clothes on. But as I mentioned being single has its perks so why not take advantage of this and fly away somewhere, spend some time in solitude finding your inner peace, making new friends. Thus valentine has a weekend following it so you can go on a long vacay.

  • Kasol, Himachal Pradesh
Enjoy the scenic beauty of Parvati Valley.

Go hippie this valentine and experience hippie culture in Kasol.  Witness some mesmerizing views of Tosh valley with the sky full of stars at night. If you are a trekking enthusiast go for Kheerganga trek and after this tiring walk treat yourself with a hot water bath at the top of Kheerganga.  Try some mouth-watering Thukpa and Momos and get your high with Hash brownies. Experience some breathtaking views of nature in Kutla and book your stay on the banks of Parvati river.

  • Baijro, Uttrakhand
Lush green fields of Baijro.

Why not go offbeat this valentine’s?  Away from city crowd Baijro sets in the heart of Pauri Garhwal and is still an unexplored place of Uttrakhand but if you are a true traveler and seeks for an adventure then Baijro is best for this valentines. Stay with the local people, hunt your food and cook with the local families. This place will give you an amazing experience of a backpacker. 

  • Chopta- Tungnath, Uttrakhand
On the top of Chandrashila.

If you are one hell of a trekker then hiking to Chopta and Tungnath is the other best option you can opt for. Though you might get snow in February but trek through these snow cladded mountains is worth going. From the top of Tungnath, you can eye-witness the snow peaks of Nanda Devi, Panch Chuli, Banderpoonch, Kedarnath. Capture this scenic beauty in your eyes and heart, while you sit in solitude in the lap of Lord Shiva.

  • Kutch, Gujarat
Gigantic white salt fields of kutch

Want some desi feel and royal treatment at the same time, Then you must get going to Kutch which is another beautiful place in Rajasthan. Explore vast white salt fields on camelback. And luckily month of February is considered as the best time to visit Kutch, as the Rann festival is on its way where huge camps are placed at distinct spots in the field having cultural programs, adventures like Hot-air ballooning, full fill your tooth craving with lip-smacking Rajasthani dishes.

Yeah sometimes it doesn’t feel alright to be alone but life is all about exploring, wandering here and there, meeting new people, experiencing new culture and cuisine. So till the time you are single enjoy your life wait for what life brings you next.

Hope next valentine’s you’ll not be reading this rather going on a trip with Mounty and your loved one.
