Remember those Goa plans you made that got cancelled because your parents won’t allow you to go with just two or three friends? Or the birthday vacation you wanted to take but couldn’t because it was too expensive? Even the solo trip you planned but backed out of because you were scared? Well, there’s a perfect solution to all of them – women’s travel groups. Whether you want to travel with your friends or go backpacking by yourself, ladies’ travel groups allow you to do just that. Your travel companions will be all women, you get to meet new people, make new friends, learn new things, and experience a new place. Here are a few women’s travelling groups in India that ensure safe and incredible travel experiences.
A Kerala-based ladies’ travel group, Appooppanthaadi was started by a travel enthusiast Sajna Ali. She got the idea of the group after a solo trip from Kerala to Odisha. Appooppanthaadi organises budget-friendly domestic and international trips, heritage walks, camping, and more.
