Solo travel - in the sense it is most often meant to say that you’re open to meet other travelers but not explicitly traveling in a fixed group of friends whom you know - is an amazing way to travel and have new experiences.

If you are interested in trekking, going in a group with one of the trek organizers could be a really rewarding experience. You get to be far from the usual busy daily life away from modern distractions, enjoy the natural beauty, make new friends, have fun and enlightening conversations and learn random new things. YHAI, Indiahikes, etc are a couple of organizations which have frequent groups going to different places and you'd easily find the best and updated info on their websites.

Another way to try this is going on your own but if this is your first experience, make sure you've read about your destination, weather, etc well so as not to end up in big trouble. Triund, Kheerganga, etc are some short yet beautiful treks which you could hike pretty much round the year. Avoid going in peak winters and peak monsoons if it's your first time though.

If you're not much excited by trekking, then finding places which have backpacker hostels would be another interesting way to travel. Zostel is one of the biggest brands having backpacker hostels at many places in India. Best thing about hostels that I like is you don't need to have any fixed plan in mind and you'll bump into someone or other and end up having a good time if you're just open to try out new experiences. It could range from discovering new places, new cuisines, cultural aspects of the place you're travelling to, and having rich conversations about life, universe and everything!
