I had an amazing time in India but I also had really awful times. I was groped on the train, constantly harassed, and had a couple of situations where I genuinely feared for my safety. In all honesty, I probably wouldn’t recommend it for solo women travelers.Posted: June 2, 2023
I spent a month in India and never felt unsafe but I didn't go out much at night and had a private driver for the Golden Triangle. I felt safe taking trains during the day but would not do it at night. I found the dress to be conservative, more conservative than SE Asia so I bought loose flowy pants in Mumbai and kept my legs and shoulders covered. India is a wonderful place filled with wonderful people.Posted: May 30, 2023
I visited Kolkata, Darjeeling and Gangtok without any problems. People were curious, stared at me, took photos without asking and so but I never felt threatened by anyone. On the streets and busses, I saw more men than women.Posted: April 11, 2023
I was in the northern part of India for three weeks. I didn’t really feel unsafe but got a lot of stares that were unnerving. Also, people were constantly over-charging me and occasionally tried to scam me.Posted: April 10, 2023
I went last summer and I had an amazing time. I never felt unsafe. I just had a normal sense of awareness, I always had pepper spray with me but never had to use it. Used Uber or Ola for rides, safe and cheap.Posted: April 9, 2023
I spent two months in India and loved every second. I researched and I knew there would be stray dogs, litter, cow poop on the streets, spicy food, and areas that didn’t smell great. Still loved it. Used public buses, trains, and hostels and went to every corner of the country. Absolutely amazing and would love to go back.Posted: April 1, 2023
India is a country of paradox, beautiful places, and smiles for the most part but unfortunately, the attitudes of men towards women in my experience were completely traumatic for me. I'd like to recommend India to everybody but I would never go back alone as a woman. Scams, kidnapping, assaults... this is not the place I dreamt of.Posted: April 1, 2023
I went to India spontaneously after being in Australia on a working holiday visa. I went solo, had no plan, flew into New Delhi at one in the morning, and caught a taxi to my hostel. I spent the next 3 months solo backpacking northern India (Cities: New Delhi, Agra, Rishikesh, Amritsar, Jaipur, Pushkar, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, and Varanasi) and had an amazing time and no bad or scary experiences. From Varanasi, I took a bus to Nepal and spent an additional 2 months there (spontaneously deciding to trek to Everest Base Camp). Before Australia I had been in southeast Asia and fallen in love with Asia as well, so decided to explore more of Asia and it's one of my favorite travel memories and experiences, those 3 months in India and 2 months in Nepal. Would highly recommend it!Posted: February 7, 2023
Only drink from water bottles, make sure they are sealed. Make sure you have warm coats as some places will be cold, some will be hot. Always keep your belongings close to you. Research well before you leave as every area is different from landscape, language , religion and weather etc. Take mosquito spray. Always keep safe and driving is crazy there so don't get scared. Its normal to have cows on roads, motorbikes , cars all overtaking and busy roads. Try to travel not in peak times as traffic can be terrible. Have lots of fun , take photos , you will love it. I always tend to travel in a group and visit places in groups.Posted: November 11, 2022
I’ve travelled by train, domestic flights and car/driver. I didn’t find any of modes of transport difficult at all. I looked up trains online then went to train stations to book ticket, most stations have foreigner windows. Some places I stayed owners booked train tickets ( Rajasthan) Internal flights booked online as I travelled, low cost and plenty. Used an app for booking car and driver. Don’t be frightened by India it’s magnificentPosted: November 10, 2022
