If you are an adventurous couple who would love to learn a new sport on your honeymoon, you should consider Gulmarg. It is known as one of the best ski destinations in India and December is the time when you can truly enjoy skiing here. Gulmarg is one of the places where you can see a white winter due to snowfall, making it look absolutely magical. Even if you don’t want to ski, if you love winter and snow, Gulmarg can be your honeymoon destination. Sightseeing attractions like Nagin Valley and Apharwat Peak make for some beautiful backdrops for photos.

The mesmerizing backwaters of Kerala are a perfect honeymoon destination and more so in the month of December when the weather is pleasant but not too harsh to bear. For couples who aren’t big fans of the cold, a trip to Alleppey is our ideal recommendation. Cruzing on the backwaters surrounded by ample lush greenery is not just peaceful but also picture-perfect. Experience a stay on a houseboat that is anchored in the water at night and enjoy authentic Kerala cuisine served on a banana leaf. If not a houseboat, you can stay in a luxury resort that is along the backwaters.



For those couples who love living like royals, a honeymoon in Udaipur is perfectly apt. One of the most picturesque and romantic destinations, Udaipur is known for its Lake Palace which is now a heritage hotel. If you are ready to splurge, you should book a room here and enjoy the royal pampering that comes with it. If not, there are several other heritage hotels and havelis that offer a view of Lake Pichola and the palace and are ideal for honeymooners. Udaipur also has other attractions like the City Palace of Udaipur, Jag Mandir and Eklingi Temple. December is a good time as the temperature is ideal for venturing out in the day and the nights can be chilly.

If you are a couple who’d rather escape to an offbeat destination than do the usual romantic escapades, Shillong is ideal for you two. The northeast of India is rather unexplored by tourists yet making it a hidden treasure where you will find fewer tourists and more beauty. This makes Shillong a great honeymoon getaway. Along with Shillong, you can also explore nearby areas like Cherrapunjee, Dawki and Mawlynnong which are just as beautiful or we’d say even more. December however means that it is going to be cold and chilly in the northeast so brace yourself and carry your woollens along.

December is one of the best times to visit the Rann as the climate is perfect. It is not too hot during the day and the nights are pleasant to chilly.

Pristine white sand beaches, blue waters of the ocean and some moments of solitude: if this is what you are looking for in your honeymoon, then Andaman Island is one of the best destinations for you.

Last but not the least, we cannot end the list without having Goa in it. One of the best seasons to visit Goa is the winter and December in particular when the vibe is electric thanks to the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s. Goa is spectacular during this time and if you are a couple who loves to party, it is perfect for you. However, you can also enjoy some peaceful, romantic moments in south Goa where the beaches are cleaner and secluded and not too many tourists as in north Goa. The days are pleasant and the nights slightly chilly in December.
