Ladakh, is a revelatory experience. The harsh terrains that one has to navigate, the thrill of the bike ride, the beautiful landscapes that finally reveal themselves teach you a lot about yourself and about each other. The experience of being on this almost spiritual journey together is sure to pull you both closer. Even if you’re not the adventurous types, is great to enjoy a vacation (or a honeymoon) in the midst of arresting natural beauty. Ride through Khardung La, world’s highest motorable road. Or take your beloved to the indescribably beautiful Pangong Lake. The trip will be an experience worth cherishing for the both of you.
2. White Water Rafting at Rishikesh
Though Rishikesh is a holy town with tremendous religious significance; the best experiences here are camping on the banks of the river Ganges and going rafting on the wild white waters. It’s an interesting idea for couples to go rafting together. Tumbling through the rapids, wading in unison through the still waters will only strengthen the bond you share. Apart from being a holy center and an adventure destination, Rishikesh is also famous for other attraction, like the many food and shopping options here.
3. Jungle Safari at Jim Corbett
Jim Corbett National Park is a great place to be with a partner. The nature and the awe-inspiring wilderness of the park are full of flora and fauna. An adventurous couple should choose Corbett FOR a wildlife honeymoon destination. Staying at a wildlife retreat here, going for a birding session, apart from enjoying a thrilling safari in Corbett is a wonderful idea to share some memorable moments.
4. Attending the Ziro Music Festival (Arunachal Pradesh)

One of India’s largest outdoor events, the Ziro Festival has acquired legendary status. There are few experiences as purely ecstatic as enjoying music from all over the country and the world playing on multiple stages in the middle of a valley, with lovely scenic beauty around you. It’s a unique experience for anybody, and being with your beloved only takes it a notch higher. If you need more reasons, there are lovely landscapes, dense wildlife, delicious local cuisine and rice beer to be enjoyed.
5. Wine Tour at Nashik
This is a one-of-a-kind experience for couples seeking laid-back luxury. Relax and share a quiet conversation over a glass of wine, enjoying the beauty of nature and the rich vineyards. Tour a vineyard and see how it is made, learn wine tasting, and take in the views, the Nashik Wine tour experience is not to be missed.
6. Museum Tour through Delhi
Delhi is a land that breathes history. The presence of monuments and relics everywhere add a touch of romance to the air. For partners that share a common love of art and history, there are few ideas better than visiting the many museums here, and share a journey through the past. Some good places to start would be the National Museum, Railway Museum, National Handicrafts Museum, Doll Museum and the National Gallery of Modern Art.
7. Trekking through the Valley of Flowers
There are places that make you wonder if God was unfair to everywhere else in giving them all the beauty He could. Valley of Flowers, a UNESCO World Biodiversity Reserve, is one such place. It is a 17 kilometers trek to the valley, but the vast meadows of alpine flowers and other fauna will captivate you and never let you feel tired. Take your loved one on this deeply enthralling journey and earn some special brownie points.
8. Snorkelling in Lakshadweep
One of the most beautiful destinations in India, the Lakshadweep group of islands is still untouched by the usual crowd of tourists. This makes it a great place for couples. Go snorkeling at either of the Bangaram and Kadmat islands, both of these great places for snorkeling. You can also learn more about snorkeling and diving at the diving school at Kadmat. Swimming through the cobalt and azure waters, taking in the untouched coral reefs and marine life with your loved one is something not many people get to do in their lifetime, and given a chance, you shouldn’t miss it for anything.
