Choosing a honeymoon destination can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. India as a honeymoon destination is yet to be fully explored, especially northeast India. Places such as Sikkim and Meghalaya are mostly frequented by honeymooners, and all for good reason. These Himalayan states share pleasant weather, untouched beautiful places, and outstanding local hospitality that makes the experience worth every penny.
Sikkim is gaining immense popularity as a honeymoon destination as it offers the beauty, serenity, and adventure that make up for an unforgettable couple experience. You can either stay in the modern capital city of Gangtok or go offbeat and explore South or West Sikkim.
Sikkim is often clubbed with Darjeeling, which is 4 hours away. This gives honeymooners an opportunity to experience different cultures, food, and iconic spots unique to each state. Sikkim is famous for its monasteries and high-altitude lakes, whereas Darjeeling is popular for its British architecture, tea gardens, and UNESCO World Heritage Darjeeling Toy Train. Sikkim’s cuisine is interesting with influences from Tibet and Bhutan. Souvenirs vary from Buddhist trinkets to spicy pickles and organic tea. Handmade carpets and woolens made by Tibetan refugees and local artisans are also prized.
Ropeway rides, yak rides, helicopter rides, and paragliding let you explore Sikkim in unique ways, and the stunning natural landscapes offer romantic moments to star gaze, take solitary nature walks, and take stunning photos for the album.
