India is known for being chaotic and in some places, it IS chaotic. But it also has a solution to its chaos – Places with so much nature and calmness that you will forget that you are in the 2nd most populated country in the world!
So here are some of the quietest and calmest places in India where you can EASILY practise yoga, meditation, or just RELAX and chill.
Note – The list is not a hierarchy.
Shocked? Don’t worry, We aren’t talking about the cities. We are talking about the natural beauty and silence. Maharashtra might be infamous for having one of the noisiest places called Mumbai, It does have some insanely silent places at the same time. Apart from having huge forts, it does have some insanely nature-friendly places which give relief from the chaos in Mumbai.
Lonavla, a BEAUTIFUL hill station very close to Pune city. It is a beautiful paradise!
Lavasa hills serve you beauty within the Lavasa city. Something like this is rarely found nowadays. The architecture you are seeing in the top left of the picture is the Lavasa main centre. Doesn’t it match with the natural beauty of the place?

5. Goa :
Many people think of Goa as a party place. But Goa is more than that. With its beautiful beaches and amazing relaxing options, you can get a party+peace atmoshpere only in Goa. Various non-toursity beaches like agonda beach are less party friendly and more peace friendly beaches. Goa steals your heart 😉
The most popular spot in Goa for one day picnics, this beach is also one of the favourites amongst the locals. Although a bit of rocky, it is counted as one amongst the least crowded beaches in Goa. Sandwiched between the Mandrem and Morjim beach, Ashwem has several beach-side resorts that offer seaside shacks to relax and rejuvenate.
Lying to the north of the Chapora River, this beach is a beautiful manifestation of sandy shoreline and is amongst the least crowded beaches of Goa. A nesting habitat for the olive ridley turtle, Morjim beach possesses a unique ecosystem that favours the growth and hatching of this species of turtles.
Pristine and alluring, Agonda Beach is the place where someone can simply relax in the company of sun, sand and sea.
