One of the best ways to unwind and find the inner self is meditation, the next best thing is travel. Traveling can be enjoyed with friends and family, but going out solo is something that is on every voyager’s bucket list.

In the eastern Himalayas, there is this state that boasts scenic mountains, great cuisine, cafes, and super friendly people. Sikkim is the best place in India if you want to rejuvenate yourself in monasteries and tranquility all around. It is a super safe place which I can vouch for myself. The locals are helpful and often go out of their way to make you and your stay memorable for a lifetime. While some places may require you to get permits issued beforehand, it is also taken care of by the hotel/homestay staff or the cab drivers. Shared cabs are also very common amongst all the routes, so there should not be much of a pinch on the pocket as well.
