Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

It is only Fardh upon a woman to fulfil Hajj if she has sufficient wealth and a husband, or any other Mahram relative to accompany her. if she does not have any Mahram relative to accompany her then it is not permissible for her to go for Hajj.

Even if, till her death no Mahram is available, she cannot go for Hajj, rather it becomes Fardh upon her to make Wasiyyat of a Hajj-e-Badal. (Ahsanul Fataawa part 4 pg.532)

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
