At times, complicated and crowded and at other spiritual and life-changing, a honeymoon in India will be a rewarding, crazy shock to your systems.

Most couples will start with the Golden Triangle with bucket-list sights like the monument to love that is the Taj Mahal. The white marble mausoleum is an essential stop. There is so much more to explore, the pink city of Jaipur, bustling Delhi, the colourful markets of Jodhpur and spotting tigers of Ranthambore National Park.

You can also explore the more peaceful beach backwaters in Kerala in the country’s south, with its wild Indian Ocean coastline and beaches like Varkala. Or, discover Himalayan culture at Darjeeling at the border with Tibet and Nepal. One thing is for sure, you won’t be making this your only visit.


Generally, the best time to visit India for honeymoon is from October to April but as there are varying climates across the country, it can be visited all year round depending on what you want to see and do. Some parts, such as the northern part near the Himalayas experience cold temperatures during the winter months from November to February and in the summer hot temperatures and monsoon rains arrive particularly from July to September
