Meet Ram Shukla from Mumbai, for whom travel is not only a job requirement but also a passion. He took a solo trip to Ajmer that helped him discover himself along with Rajasthan. This 3-day stint of exploration came to him at a nominal cost (including hotel) of Rs. 1,600 only!
My work has taken me to many places across the country, big and small. However, that was not enough for the traveler in me, thus, I decided to take a solo trip to Ajmer. Time is always a constraint. When my friend’s wedding came up in Kota, I knew it was my opportunity to extend my trip.
I’ve always handled my own booking and plans and this was the first time I went via a website. Rohit from TravelTriangle, along with Naina from Affordable Travel Agency helped in taking away the headache that came with planning a trip. They were incredibly helpful and patiently answered all my queries.
Day 1: Relishing The Rajasthani Delicacies
On my arrival at Ajmer, I checked into my deluxe room in Hotel Park Palace. I was really impressed with the luxury I received for the price I paid. The hotel was well maintained with good food.

During the day, I got to enjoy the delicious local Rajasthani cuisine. Lunch was spent trying some traditional dishes like Dal Batti Churma and Dahi Bada. This really satisfied the foodie in me.
After resting, I then made my way to the Ajmer Sharif Dargah, which is a Sufi shrine and the most important religious tourist attraction in the city of Ajmer. My entire visit to the Dargah was hassle free. I was neither required to stand in long queues nor wait for a long time. It went by this smooth due to the hotel staff’s connection with the Maulvi Saheb.
Day 2: Exploring The Royal Ajmer
In the morning, the hotel staff was incredibly helpful and provided me with a list of places to visit in Ajmer. After researching on the locations on my laptop, I set out on day two of my sightseeing. I took a local cab and went around the city.
I visited the Jain Temple, the Akbar Museum and the nearby city of Pushkar. All of these places were new for me and left me with a unique experience of it altogether. My driver was very cooperative and helped me in my travel by giving me nuggets of knowledge about the places we kept passing by.
The highlight of my day was the camel ride I took. It was an hour and a half long and took me around the sand dunes. The activity was very enjoyable and definitely worth the time and effort spent on it.
Day 3: Bidding Adieu
I checked out of my hotel and made my way home. I was sad to leave but was happy about the fact that I was going back with a holiday that would stay with me for times to come.

This entire trip was vastly enriching for me as a person. I got the opportunity to meet new people, observe a new culture and grow as a person. I would ideally suggest every individual to take a solo trip, as it makes one undergo a completely unique and different experience.
I tend to take holidays twice a year and am planning an international one within the next 6 months. TravelTriangle is awesome and helped make my trip a lot better.
Wow Moment: Too many to choose from. The entire trip was lovely.
Low Moment: Expected the hotel’s food to be a lot better than it was.
Tips To Future Travelers: Travel alone! It is a soothing and learning point. Also, if you’re going to a new location, don’t forget to explore the local culture and cuisine.
