AMaharashtra: What to do and eat, and where to stay in Maharashtra
Lonar Crater in Aurangabad is a must visit. Apart from the forts and Bibi Ka Maqbara (which is inspired by the taj mahal apparently). Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves caves are close by too....
AIndia: Is it safe to travel to india as a single female?
Yes certainly Sara. There are a lot of places you can visit. Like south of India is beautiful and definately doable solo. I would recommend Gokarna in Karnataka, parts of Kerala and of course Goa....
