A Northeast Sojourn for the Fearless Female

Female? Check. Art lover? Check. Love to travel? Check. Food aficionado? Check. Nature enthusiast? Double Check! Solo trip in India? Cross. This is the malady of the modern Indian woman. With endless travel options across the country, and a treasure trove of natural wonders tucked away in the remote hinterlands of the subcontinent, India is a travel destination like no other. Yet most of these wonders remain inaccessible to women travellers. A deep-rooted patriarchal culture, poor sanitation and inadequate security measures mean few women can go solo on trips outside urban metros. The northeast is an encouraging variance in this context. According to a 2016 government survey on women’s empowerment index, the Northeast states rank the highest in the country. The region records the smallest gap in terms of gender inequality with few instances of dowry, female foeticide and child marriage in comparison with the rest of India. These statistics combined with the captivating natural beauty of the region make the Northeast an ideal destination for a women’s group tour. With so much to do and see here, you will be spoiled for choices and having a reliable partner like Ahom with you every step of your journey, you can focus simply on having a good time.
