This trend has just began, where people prefer travelling alone, without partners to find their inner peace or to rejuvenate their inner soul, all they want from the travel business is safety.
Take care of the safety as women and girls fall in the majority part of this solo traveler brigade.
People do not prefer crowded or any touristy places, they look for secluded, far away from the daily commotion especially in the lap of nature, and India is rich in offering diverse places from hills to mountain ranges to coastal areas.
Foreigners as well as domestic customers are keenly looking more into this space to feed their soul, and they are ready to pay any amount the travel agency offer. It is a win-win situation throughout the year irrespective of seasonal constraints.
This business is seasonal but it never goes out of fashion. People flock in and flock out preferably in spring, summers and winters to evaluate their adrenaline rush.
This business depends purely on the adrenaline rush driving people to push their boundaries. It is a little risky for some adventure sports but for the hot-young blood, they want to experience and experiment because they believe in YOLO (You Only Live Once).

This is where the photography territory pushes itself in. As people cannot carry their expensive DSLRs or professional areas in water or extreme areas, but perfect picture is a must, to some people cannot afford expensive cameras which is why chargeable photography comes into play.
Charges vary for HD videos while performing any adventure sport and cool pictures, people will pay if they get the desired image or video as a souvenir from the travel.
