Unexplored Honeymoon Destinations in India
Your honeymoon heralds the onset of a new phase in your life. So, it does not need to be explicitly expressed that you commemorate the commencement of this new episode with unadulterated pomp and festivity. You'd want to express your love and passion towards your partner in the most flamboyant and extravagant manner possible and bond with your partner for a lifetime.
So it follows that you’d want to spend your honeymooning nights and days in a setting that is offbeat, exclusive and far from the madding crowd. To get acquainted with your heartthrob in a better manner, you’d need a setting that offers solitude and tranquillity. Following are some less frequented destinations that you can pick from for a dream honeymoon.
Sandakphu (West Bengal)
Sandakphu is a Himalayan mountain peak and a very popular trekking route. Hardcore trekkers and experienced mountaineers usually take this trek as a connecting trail to connect to other high altitude treks that lead to the Kanchenjunga-one of the highest mountain peaks in the world. If both of you consider yourselves to be adventurous and exploratory, you can go plan a trip to Sandakphu. You’ll be witness to visual treats that you’ll remember for a lifetime including breathtaking views of Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga. Best time to visit would be between July and November.
If you have a penchant for the creepy and get a kick out of visiting a haunted place, then you should plan a tour to Bhangarh.

You can see signs put up in prominent locations throughout the city not to frequent the place before sunrise and after sunset.
If you have to visit Bhangarh then get there quite early in the morning and leave much before the sun sets. It takes about 4 to 5 hours to reach Bhangarh from Delhi by road. You can consider visiting Sariska Wildlife Reserve, Jaipur and Alwar that lie en route. Best time to visit is from July to December.
