If you are looking for a honeymoon that is a mix of everything, Khajjiar has it all. Go zorbing, go to the Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary and pay a visit to its many temples when in Khajjiar.



Give Alleppey a miss and visit Kumarakom instead. Famous for its backwater cruises, it is also known for its paddy fields, canals and the Vembanad Lake. Honeymooners can enjoy a romantic stay here and if you two are nature-lovers, there’s plenty you can do.
