The thing every couple waits for. Every lover’s dreams to make a perfect and unforgettable honeymoon. Maybe a poet in love first uttered this beautiful word Honeymoon.

Imagine the majestic range of Himalaya in front of you and two nameless birds are making love, and you’re enjoying this site with your newlywed wife. She is blushing and sometimes quivering with cold and you are just wrapping her around to warm her up.

I know you must have made a long list of your dream destinations and may be thinking about International trips as well. But dear lovebirds, the diverse geographic demography of India can beat any of those International attractions.


Yes, I know. We all lure for white sand beaches, London bridge snaps and all (Thanks to Bollywood). We all shuffle fabulous Instagram accounts and wish to spend a day in Santorini Once in a lifetime. Those cozy surreal homestays, wooden isolated house on the top of a hill or amidst a forest. But after coming back from your dream trip you may have to go to your office on auto to save money because that trip has taken a toll on your bank balance.

Do you know India also have a white sand Sea-beach, exotic tree houses, Asia’s cleanest village, living Root Bridge, floating market, backwater and many more! Here, we also have the dreamlike homestays with panoramic views, secluded, peaceful and vintage. You can live your dream holiday within your budget and help some people economically.

If I try to pen down all the possible honeymoon destinations and homestays for the honeymoon, then I have to publish an E-book for sure. So here we will talk about three enthralling places and exotic homestays of Himachal Pradesh which will act as the aphrodisiac.


Himachal Pradesh is full of surprises. The Range of mountains, lush green fields, pine forest, and azure lake make it more majestic. Apart from that the Indo-British culture and the vintage houses will take you to a completely different era.

There is no shortage of amusing amazements that welcome you when you visit into Himachal. Manali, Dalhousie, Mcleodgunj, Spiti, Shimla- this list will be never-ending if we start talking about Himachal Pradesh.


Explaining about homestays is a really tough job for me. Loving something and stating the reasons of loving that is really hard. I am no one to advise you but to add a whole new dimension to your travel experiences, you can try homestays once.

Homestays are calm, different, warm and lovely. Homestays let you feel like a ‘Roman in Rome’ and I love to feel so.

The Homestay just justify its name itself. A view of sprawling mountains and a pine forest…the view will take your heart away. You can enjoy your breakfast overlooking the pine forest.

The perfect amalgamation of comfort, luxury, and nature. The large lawn with trees will introduce you and your honey with something called ‘the smell of mountains’.

In addition to the Full furnished kitchen and luxurious bedrooms, there is someone to wake you up every morning. I am talking about the ‘Mountain Parrots’ and ‘Mountain Bulbul’. Maybe, there is no definite explanation of pleasure. But I think pleasure is not pleasant than this.

And here is the most secluded homestay.

If you are searching for peace and seclusion then this is the place. It will allow you to spend quality time with your darling. You will spend your evenings with musky tea and the view of Golden Himalaya.

I am really feeling the scarcity of words to explain the beauty and royal feeling of staying in this homestay. Santila’ is an eco-friendly home with a humble yet fashionable Anglo-Himachali design.

Far away from city hustle, never-ending horns and numerous hoardings, Sanjauli is a peaceful hamlet with simple people and their modest aboriginal lifestyle. Give your beloved a scope to love an altogether different life and a lifetime experience.

Well, this balcony will definitely encourage the veiled poet inside me. The hidden Wordsworth in me will write a few words about the frisky lock on my ‘coy mistress’s’ face and her reddish cheek out of the cold. Few simple things can really bring heaven on earth.
