12 Places Lonely Hearts Can Choose Over People This Valentines Day

Tripoto

Let's face it. If you're here, you probably have already survived those awkward moments on the most romantic day of the year.

Year after year, I have given Valentine's Day a chance and tried to play my silent part in the celebration of love. I've survived it as a loner and have been on the other side too when your partner is eager to shower you with presents and all the love in the world. But you're not ready for a date just because everyone else is doing it. My rejection of Valentine's Day this year would be quite passive.

The idea is, why survive it when you can escape it.

So let's plan this smooth escape and bookmark it as a life hack for the years to come.

Single holidays for peeps from Delhi.

1. Kee

Why Kee? Because this place is an escape in the true sense and most importantly, it's a value addition to your life. You need to pre-plan this escape since you need three days to reach Spiti Valley from Delhi via Rohtang Pass. Stay at the Gompa and enjoy a world away from the world.

2. Pushkar

If you're looking for a short solo escape from Delhi, Pushkar is indeed an ideal destination. More than the world-renowned temples around this town, the place is known for the growing happy hippie culture. Pushkar is also known as a great opportunity for cafe hopping and meeting fellow travellers.

Run away to a silent town embraced by the Himalayas. While the rest of the world is busy trying to forget everything around, a visit to Narkanda can be your chance to get to know a new place hidden somewhere in the hills of Himachal Pradesh.

4. Rewalsar

Rush to the town that has surprisingly not made its place on the tourist map yet. Rewalsar is a beautiful lake town with an interesting historical importance and is a pilgrimage for Buddhists from all across the world. For solo travellers in India, Rewalsar is that uncharted territory that must be ticked off the list.
