I am single female soon coming to India on my solo trip. I plan to explore Agra, Varanasi, Orchha and many other city during my 15 days trip in India before moving on to Kathmandu. I keep reading the horrific news about bad incidents happening to female tourist in India. I understand that any society is a mix of good and bad people.
I want to know and discuss what we can do for our own safety in India. My main question is : Which weapons I can carry during my solo trip in India? What is allowed and what is not?
Any suggestions / discussions are welcome.
