This is it. THE HONEYMOON. An unforgettable, priceless, and the most cherished time of your life. But the question remains where? 

It has been a trend nowadays to travel to exotic honeymoon destinations abroad. But if you think it through, starting a new phase of life with a reckless splurge does not seem as much of a good idea. If you are someone who is wanting to save for something bigger in your future, India, the land of Kamasutra is the perfect love-nest for you! Okay, we get it. You want romance. But why is romance always associated with a sunset cruise and fancy dinners? Here is a list of some of the best, yet somewhat unexplored honeymoon destinations in India.

1. Khajjiar: Mini Switzerland of India

Switzerland is romantic and everybody knows that. But it does not have the small town vibe like Khajjiar. Watching saucer-shaped meadows and dense forests from your honeymoon suite? The only thing that could top this moment is never having to leave this place. The hotels like Mystic Village offer you the best ambiance amidst fragrant pine forests and solitude for a passionate honeymoon.
