Agra Honeymoon Tour

Agra Honeymoon Tour, IndiaHoneymoon Tour in Agra - Shah Jahan's testimony of love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal, won it the stature of being one of the world's seven wonders, and a not-to-be-missed-destination for honeymooners.

Situated in Agra, a 3-hour drive from Delhi, the Taj Mahal can be covered on your way to or back from Rajasthan. To view this stately monument in entirety, you need at least half a day. It took almost 17 long years and an army of craftsmen and artisans to complete this monument to perfection. Crafted from white marble and complex inlay work using semi-precious stones and floral carvings, the architecture uses a fine blend of rounded minarets, domes and pillars which blend in wonderful harmony with the greenery of the rectangular gardens in the foreground.

The Taj Mahal is best viewed in the moonlight, and the authorities allow 400 tourists only to view this beautiful monument on just five moonlit days of the month. You can plan your trip to this romantic destination accordingly.

Agra was the capital of the Mughal Empire that ruled large parts of North India from 1526 till Shah Jahan shifted his base to Delhi in 1658. The city has other splendid monuments of the era which are also UNESCO World Heritage sites, like the Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. The Agra Fort was built in 1565 with red sandstone and was partially replaced with marble and pietra dura inlay at a later date.

Andaman Honeymoon Tour

Andaman Honeymoon PackageHoneymoon in Andaman Islands (Emeralds in the Sea) - If you've ever wondered what the earth looked like when God first created it, go down to the Andaman Islands. These shimmering emeralds in the sea way off India's eastern coast and deep into the Bay of Bengal are largely uninhabited and far removed from any signs of civilization. Of the 572 islands that comprise the Andaman and Nicobar islands, only 38 are inhabited. And on these inhabited islands, you can be sure of the purest of air, the greenest of foliage, the bluest of waters and the whitest of beaches, anywhere in the world. In short, just the way God made it.

So how does one make the most of a honeymoon trip to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands? Cruising, scuba diving, snorkeling, trekking, or simply lazing by the sea side? A trip to the Andamans can be one of the most fulfilling holidays you would have ever taken. A lazy cruise off the harbour at Port Blair will unveil the pulsating pace of marine life around Jolly Buoy Island, underwater coral gardens off Cinque Island, the beaches of Red Skin and Havelock Islands, the volcanic Barren Island, the seat of the British administration on Ross Island, the prisons on Viper Island and the old saw mill on Chatham Island.

Activity-oriented honeymooners can take to the Andaman Water Sports Complex where there are facilities for water-skiing, windsurfing, speed boating and milder activities like paddle and row boating. You can also pitch a tent on the beach or trek through the forests with borrowed trekking equipment from the Andaman Teal House.

In addition, Neil Island, Rangat, Long Island, Mayapur, Diglipur and the Little Andaman Island possess unique natural attractions. Take your time to walk through the quiet tribal villages, white sandy beaches and mangroves, soak in the sun and the gushing waterfalls, or stand by to watch the nesting turtles. You can't get any closer to nature than that.

Goa Honeymoon Tour

Honeymoon in GoaGoa Honeymoon Package - Close your eyes and listen to the swaying of the palms, the gentle hush of the waves, a strumming of the guitar in the distance and the song of the birds. Place these sounds against a shimmering blue sea, soaring palms, fresh green fields and reddish colored earth merging into fine creamy white beaches. This heaven on earth is Goa, where you can do much, but still choose to do nothing. It's your holiday, and Goa just lets you be.

Goa's long beach line gives you enough space to spend the entire day there without being disturbed. Your hotel would most probably have its own private beach, but you can venture out to the other beaches. Palolem, Sinquerim, Bambolim, Vagator, Agonda, Mabor and Cavelossim are a little off the beaten track and some of them have inexpensive beach shacks serving spicy Goan fare. Beach parties are very much part of Goa, and full of dance and music.

The waters of Goa are ideal for water skiing, speed boats, parasailing, wind surfing, dinghy sailing, scuba diving, angling and yacht sailing. Windsurfing enthusiasts can take to Dona Paula Bay and to Benaulim and Palolem for dolphin cruises and fishing trips.

Goa's monuments blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings, and a tour of the churches and temples reflects the harmony between the Portuguese and Hindu influences. Above and beyond, Goa has some excellent picnic spots away from the sands - the Cabo de-Rama Fort, Terekhol Fort, the Arvalem and Dudhsagar Waterfalls, and the Mayem Lake are perfect for one-day trips.

Himachal Honeymoon Tour

Himachal Honeymoon TourHoneymoon in Himachal Pradesh - What could a state with a name that spells eternal snow be like? Visit Himachal, and discover the blissful arrangement of sky high mountains and gentle rolling hills hiding pearly lakes, icy glaciers and lush green valleys within their folds. Himachal Pradesh has been a popular haunt of vacationers ever since tourism began in India. Overwhelmed by the thick cloak of pines and firs that dressed the hills in Shimla, the British chose to make it their summer capital.

Himachal's popular zones are defined by its valleys - the Kangra, the Chamba, the Lahaul - Spiti Valley and the Kinnaur-Parvati-Giri- Kullu cluster of valleys. Locked within these vales are the picturesque towns of Kullu Manali, Dalhousie and Chamba, Dharamsala and Palampur. For dare-devil adventure, the cold desert of Lahul-Spiti is quite a challenge. And, gurgling past these high mountains are the snow melted streams which only a yak can help you cross! Himachal is a cheerful blend of romance, adventure and spirituality. For close encounters with the state's treasures, venture into its sanctuaries and national parks, which house a startling range of flora and fauna. An excursion to either the Great Himalayan National Park in Kullu, the Pin Valley National Park in Spiti, the Renuka Wildlife Sanctuary or the Churdhar Sanctuary in Sirmour packs in large doses of thrill and exciting activity, besides being spiritually and emotionally uplifting.

Most of Himachal can be visited any time of the year, except of course the higher altitudes of Lahaul-Spiti which remain out of bounds in winter. While summer is generally frequented by tourists from the plains, those looking for a unique holiday experience choose to visit Himachal during the wet monsoons and the snowy winters.

On the other hand, the varied topography allows white water rafting, trekking, camping, mountain biking, paragliding, backwater cruises and jungle safaris.

Kerala's wealth of natural attractions includes Kumarakom, a little heaven with mangroves, coconut groves, lush paddy fields and waterways and canals. You can take a boat to Lake Vembanad and indulge in fishing, swimming and bird watching.

Honeymoon in Lakshadweep

Honeymoon in LakshadweepHoneymoon in Lakshadweep Islands (Coral Wonders) - One of the leading destinations for eco-tourists, Lakshadweep is built on ancient volcanic formations enclosing 12 atolls, three reefs and some submerged coasts off the coast of Kerala in the Arabian Sea.

Lying amid the languid waters are tiny islands, altogether measuring up to 32 sq.km, that beckon honeymooners with their enchanting landscapes. Agatti, Amini, Andrott, Bitra, Chetlat, Kadmat, Kalpeni, Kavaratti, Kiltan, Bangaram and Minicoy are some of the major islands within the 36 island archipelago shielded by shallow lagoons and large coral formations. These physiographic elements accentuate the inherent charm of these tropical islands, and enable swimming and other sports in the sea. Glass bottomed boats are also at hand for those who prefer to watch the treasures of the sea without getting soaked. Kayaking and sailing are pleasurable activities that take you closer to the riches of Lakshadweep.

While in Lakshadweep, steal a few days at a hut on Kadmat's sun-kissed and moon-lit beaches enclosed within coconut groves which part to offer enticing views of the sea. At the unimaginably beautiful island of Bangaram, you're assured of complete privacy with no settlers around. Stay at one of the beach huts amidst the swaying of the palms and the rush of the waves all day without getting disturbed. Bangaram is served by Agatti airport, a two hour boat ride away, a fun journey by itself.

Kavaratti is the administrative capital and the placid waters of the lagoon enable swimming and other water sports. Kayaks and sailing yachts can be taken on hire for a cruise around the island. Kalpeni has three satellite islands of Tilakkam, Pitti and Cheriyam and offers similar facilities at its beach resort. Andrott is the largest of the Lakshadweep islands and here is where you can observe the lifestyle of the local seamen living in clusters called 'athiris'.

Lakshadweep can be visited all round the year, but if you wish to take a cruise around the islands, plan your trip between October and May to escape the turbulent sea during the south-west monsoon.

Honeymoon in UttarakhandHoneymoon in Uttarakhand (Uttaranchal)- Carved out of the hilly tracts of the state of Uttar Pradesh in November 2000, Uttarakhand is a breathtakingly beautiful destination. The awesome Himalayas which straddle the state from end to end enclose flower bedecked vales, frothy white streams, whispering coniferous forests, soft rolling meadows, bountiful orchards, serene lakes and frosty glaciers. This is also a land that infuses spirituality in the non-believer, evokes the spirit of adventure in the most passive of personalities, and draws city-tamed folks to the untamed wilds of its national parks and sanctuaries.

What's more, apart from the popular locations that Uttarakhand is already famous for, there are a lot many destinations within this generously endowed state that are tucked away from the mainstream and just waiting to be discovered. Consider Khirsu, if you've ever dreamt of staying in a cottage right in the midst of a thick forest of pine, oak and deodar, and your gateway to the outside world is only through a path of apple trees, exotic herbs and wild flowers. Sit back and count at least 300 peaks that ring your little cottage. Or, if you want to be a part of the celestial playground of the Gods, take the road to Govindghat and walk into a wide alpine valley studded with a million flowers in psychedelic hues. To explore the Valley of Flowers from end to end, wade through shallow streams, walk over log bridges and sink into a palette of chest high foliage. This Garden of Eden reveals itself only during the months of July and August, so plan your trip accordingly.

If you want to pack in some adventure along with the solitude that Uttarakhand offers, head for Munsyari in the east, from where you can trek up to the Milam and Ralam glaciers and the Nanda Devi peak, the world's third highest. Clad in soft mists that lift lazily to reveal the snow clad peaks of Trishul, Nanda Devi, Nandakot and Panchchuli is the incredibly beautiful hill town of Kausani. Having inspired the writings of many a poet, Kausani is a year-round destination nestled away from crowds, yet accessible enough from major railheads and highways.

Cutting a different picture is the bowl-shaped Chaukori where tea plantations alternate with orchards and pine forests amidst the magnificent peaks. Again, Binsar, hidden from the glare of the crowds that throng Nainital just 95 km away is a haven of peace with mesmerizing views and splendid trekking trails.

Taking a solitary road to the right at Joshimath is Auli, Uttarakhand's skiing capital. Between January and March, Auli beckons skiers to its smooth snow covered slopes protected from the chilly winds by deodar and oak trees.
