Start by spending Day 1 & 2 in Dalhousie

Dalhousie and the Chamba Valley are comparatively lesser explored areas of the state of Himachal Pradesh. If you’re a lover of unspoiled air and striking natural views then Dalhousie is the place where you’d find them. Spread over an expanse of five hills, the town reveals the distinct relics of the British Raj. Its hotels are particularly indicative of the era gone by. Hill stations are always the most preferred among honeymooners for they make for the most picturesque location.

Spend Day 3 & 4 in Dalhousie – Khajjiar

Often dubbed the “Gulmarg of Himachal Pradesh”, the plush green meadows of Khajjiar are bounded by dense pine and cedar forests. The pastoral scenery can easily transport you to a different world altogether. Away from the bustling city life, Khajjiar makes way for an absolutely tranquil honeymoon location.

The saucer shaped meadow features a small lake that boasts a floating island. Due to heavy silting during rains, much of the lake portion has deteriorated into mud. Despite that the landscape here is a honeymooner’s delight.

Day 5 in Khajjiar – Dharamshala

Situated on the spur of the famous Dhauladhar ranges, Dharamshala is approximately 17 kms north-east of the beautiful Kangra town. This hilly settlement is surrounded with oak trees, conifer trees and snow-capped mountains on three sides of the town. It is said that the accessibility of snowline is generally more at Dharamshala than at any other popular hill station. Most honeymoon vacationers prefer to go for a day long trek to a snow-point on an early morning because that’s the most appropriate time to enjoy the serene landscape at its best.

Day 6 in Dharamsala – Kullu

The most pleasant and lovely Kullu valley spreads out its charisma on either side of river Beas. The valley stretches from north to south of this river and is 80 km long and about 2km broad. Come to Kullu for some mossy meadows surrounded by the rushing brooks and awe inspiring glens. A considerable space is open to travellers, trekkers, mountaineers, and for those who wish to breathe the fresh air of the Himalaya and enjoy the sight of the variegated mountain backdrop.

Day 7 & 8: Kullu – Manali

40 kms off Kullu to the north, Manali is located on the National Highway connecting to Leh. The scenery here is breathtaking in every sense of the word. On one hand you can see snow-capped peaks bordering the Beas River with its crystalline water flowing and on the other hand deodars, pine trees, tiny fields and fruit orchards do the magic. There is no dearth of places to visit in Manali, thus you can easily spend your time here. Undoubtedly, an excellent place for a honeymoon, Manali is also a trekker’s paradise. From sightseeing to adventure activities, from shrines to antiquity, Manali has it all for honeymooners.
