Travel through India can be a richly rewarding experience. From ancient art and history, a rich tribal culture, local and world-class shopping, budget and wildlife urban experiences, natural and man-made wonders and high adventure, there is so much to see and do.

So where can a woman travel alone, and experience all this without worrying about her safety? Reshma Kulkarni presents a list of ten women-friendly destinations in India, that offer a variety of safe holiday experiences.

Coorg: For A Plantation Holiday

Things To Do In Coorg

Trek around the hills and do a coffee or spice tour in the many plantations. Discover the delights of the Tibetan settlement in Coorg and visit the beautiful monastery at Kushalnagar to see the Golden Buddha. Bathe a pachyderm in Dubare Elephant Camp, go white water rafting, angling, birding or cycling through the beautiful hills. The festivals, temples and ritual ceremonies are also something to look out for.

Is Coorg Safe For Women?

Unlike several other destinations in India, the sex ratio in Coorg favours women, who hold a respectful position in society. Coorg is also well-connected to big cities like Bengaluru and Mysore and has good communication lines. The literacy rate is very high and the crime rate is low.

Where To Stay In Coorg

Enjoy the Kodava style architecture in eco-friendly surroundings at ‘Orange County’; go heritage hunting in the luxurious ‘Green Hills Estate’; or revel in the lush foliage at the ‘Last Resort’. There are home-stay options where you can experience true Coorgi cuisine and culture.

    I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to contribute
    to the discussion. It is triggered by the passion communicated in the post I browsed.
    And on this article 10 Women-Friendly Destinations In India | Cox & Kings Blog.
    I was actually moved enough to create a thought 🙂 I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do
    not mind. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional sites, I’d like to follow you. Could you list the complete urls of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
