As we are finally in Unlock 4.0, people are still adjusting and adapting themselves to the ‘New Normal’. However, during these 5 months when India was under lockdown and then saw the re-opening of cities and economy in a phased manner, several people have been craving to travel once again just like the old times and visit their favourite travel destinations; be it the mountains of the north, beaches or soothing getaways of the south.
Keeping this in mind, we at Adotrip, have hand-picked a few travel destinations which are safe to travel to even in the current downtime of the coronavirus crisis. So, without further ado, let’s try and explore which are these safest Indian destinations.
This is one such travel destination in India that hasn’t reported a single case of Coronavirus yet. Perhaps, this might be due to its remote location. Considering this, it is a great place to satisfy your travel cravings and enjoy nature amid the ongoing pandemic.
This is another Indian destination which hasn’t seen a very steep spike for the coronavirus cases despite being quite close to Gujarat and Maharashtra geographically. This has been only possible due to the collective efforts of the locals residing there. It proves that together we can overcome any situation.
Goa is another Indian destination which hasn’t seen a great number of Coronavirus cases yet. The overall COVID situation in Goa seems to be quite controlled, thus if you want to travel someplace safe in India during these times, then Goa is one such Indian destination worth considering.
Compared to other states like Delhi and Maharashtra, Nagaland is way below them in terms of COVID cases. With around 4,000 cases and only about 9 or 10 deaths, Nagaland is way safer to travel and explore nature’s beauty while the pandemic still lingers in other states.
This is another interesting choice to explore and relish the breathtaking beauty of nature’s symphony. Even in the current COVID situation, visiting here, you almost feel as if you have entered a different world altogether. The feeling of camping, hiking and doing lots of other activities is simply an amazing experience that you won’t forget for years to come. In total, Himachal Pradesh has seen about 6,416 cases out of which more than 4,000 people have even recovered with only 43 deaths (as we write).
Among the North-Eastern states, Manipur is yet another Indian travel getaway that has managed to beat the virus, thanks to the collective efforts of the people and government of the state. As of now, there have been around 6,000 total Corona Virus cases, out of which 4.5 k people have already recovered with only 28 deaths. So, if you are up for some adventure and want to explore the valleys, mountains, waterfalls and whatnot during the current times, then Manipur is one of the best places to visit right away.
Whenever the inner-traveller within us wants to experience ebb and flow of life, the first thing we do is look up to the mountains, and this holy town of Rishikesh is a perfect mountainous retreat to explore. Also referred to as the Yoga Capital of the world Rishikesh is quite a good choice for those who are looking for some peace of mind and serenity of the soul amid the pandemic.
Being a nice blend of spirituality and nature’s beauty, and sporting activities, this is the kind of travel destination which you mustn’t avoid at any cost. And even in these unprecedented times, it hasn't seen a spike as disruptive as other Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai and several others, thus, you can consider travelling here with proper precautions. As of now, according to the government data, about 21,234 cases have been detected here, out of which 14,500 have recovered with 291 deaths.
Madhya Pradesh had approx 63,000 COVID cases, out of which about 48,000 have recovered. Although MP has been hit by the virus, still the situation is far less bad than some of the other Indian states. Amid all this, if you want to experience the wild, then a trip to Bhopal’s Bori Sanctuary along with the Satpura Tiger Reserve is highly recommended. It is one of the safest places to visit in India during the unlock 4.0 as it is relatively an unexplored travel getaway. If you are lucky, you might be able to spot some wild animals like leopards, giant squirrels, and many other wildlife species.
