Top 5 Natural Landscapes for Solo Travelers

Visting nature and connecting with God through admiring his divine creations is an integral part of solo travel, especially if you're a modern city dweller.

Here are five must-see natural landscapes from all over the world that you just have to consider as a solo traveler in 2022.


The Sahara Desert, North Africa

The Sahara Desert is one of the most mystical natural landscapes in the world.

Spending a day or two camping in the middle of the dunes and riding camels towards oases is a spiritual experience by all means. It will bring you closer to how travel was like for the Prophet (SAW)


The Himalayas, Asia

Witnessing the sheer magnitude of the Himalayas is enough to make the most arrogant person feel so humble in the face of God's creation.

If you're an adventurous solo traveler, climbing the Himalayas is a challenge you must allow yourself to take.


Black Forest, Germany

Wondering through the gigantic trees of the Black Forest feels like being transferred to a fairy tale story in the woods. I'm thinking like the Legend of Zelda kinda magical forest.

For people who live in the cities for most of their lives, traveling Solo to the Black Forest is a life-transforming experience.


The Grand Canyon, America

The Grand Canyon needs no introductions. We've all seen the Grand Canyon in Hollywood movies and thought, "that's a majestic place that I would like to visit."

Fans of the Good Old Western Cowboy Style will surely appreciate a trip to the Grand Canyon. You can almost hear the cowboy whistle melody from the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly once you set foot there.


Pulau Ubin Island, Singapore

Pulau Ubin is an Island where mother nature thrives and people live along with it harmoniously.

Pulau Ubin is truly a masterpiece for those who appreciate the beauty of nature and the simple life of people who embrace it.

The history of Samarkand is as complex and exciting as it can be. This historic city is home to some of the most mesmerizing historical monuments in the world.

Islamic history geeks would appreciate traveling Solo to Samarkand to connect with the ancient past.


Fez, Morocco

Fez is a landmark city as far as Islamic, and North African cultures are concerned.

Wondering across the rich labyrinthine alleys of Fez' old town is a sensory experience that enchants the soul.

Make sure to purchase some cool souvenirs to remind you of Fez.


Rome, Italy

Rome bears the remains of what was once the greatest civilization in the Mediterranean.

Your solo historical journey across Rome will bring memories from old movies about the Roman Empire and their days of earthly glory.


Jerusalem, Western Asia

Jerusalem is a mystical city that all Abrahamic religions consider holy. The Holy City, as known by many, is one of the key locations in the story of Isra and Miraj.

The spirituality of Jerusalem reminds a solo traveler that true religion is beyond traditions and language; it's part of human nature.

Traveling solo can be a little bit risky and lonely, but it's definitely worth the try because you're never the same person after you travel alone for a while and return home more mature, wise, and humble than ever.

A transformation always takes place when you travel to somewhere far away from home, especially if you feel that place calling you; it's a spiritual act by all means for people who seek those kinds of experiences.
