Honeymoon In Gangtok – Nothing Like Anything

Wreathed in clouds, Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim is located on a ridge at a height of 5500 feet. With a spectacular view of the Khangchendzonga, the town provides the perfect base for travel through the state. Once an important transit point for traders traveling between Tibet and India, it is today a busy administrative and business centre and presents an interesting mix of cultures and communities.

Gangtok is a city, which, till one sees it, one would believe exists only in picture-story books. In the mystery-laden mists prayer flags whip in the breeze; wheels spin in the hands of Lamas mumbling invocations to God, in the distance are the snows, on the streets amidst brightly painted pagoda roofed houses, lined with friendly smiling people are silver, silk and spice and jewellery to gladden an maiden’s heart, from across the seven seas are gadget and goods to delight the collector of “imported goods’, while directly overlooking the city is the hill Lukshyma, the ‘Mother of Pearl’ citadel of the magic mountain, Khang-Chen-Dzod-Nga.

For a view of Gangtok and all its surrounding, one can got to Ganest Tok situated on a ridge at a distance of 7 kms from Gangtok. From this Spot one can get a view of sprawling Gangtok town, while across the hills Mt. Khang-chen-Dzonga and Mt. Siniolchu loom over the horizon. A cafeteria serves hot tea, coffee and snacks. The view from here is truly breathtaking with snow peaks providing the perfect backdrop for a panoramic view of Gangtok town.

A great Honeymoon in fiji

The Fiji islands are an inviting paradise with some of the friendliest locals in the world. From the moment you arrive in Fiji you will be struck by the natural beauty of the islands but equally moved by the genuine and kind-hearted Fijian people. Any stress just melts away as you explore the stunning beaches, warm tropical climate and laidback island atmosphere. Bula (meaning hello in Fijian) is a word you will hear everywhere you go and is always exclaimed with a smile. It is this welcoming atmosphere and stunning natural beauty that make a holiday to Fiji the experience of a lifetime. Fiji accommodation is as diverse as the 320+ islands that make up this area. There are more than 50 hotels and resorts spread out over the islands ensuring whatever your taste or budget, there is something for you. Most accommodation can be found on Fiji's two largest islands, Vitu Levu and Vanua Levu however there are more scattered throughout the smaller islands. The facilities at each hotel and resort vary as much as the islands themselves. Depending on your particular accommodation, you can enjoy access to day spas, full equipped gyms and massive lagoon style pools. While some hotels target budget travellers, all are quality accommodation. Whether you prefer a quiet spot in the shade of a palm tree, sipping cocktails by the pool or you're up for a bit of adventure Fiji welcomes you. With maximum temperatures sitting between 26 °C and 31 °C year round this is definitely thongs and shorts weather. Conditions are perfect for working on your tan, sailing the crystal clear waters, exploring local reefs and discovering the rich culture and heritage that is so abundant in the local markets. With the best time to visit Fiji weather wise is between late March and early December, sunny days and a warm tropical climate offer endless options for exploring the sandy white beaches and rolling mountains of the island. A refreshing trade wind blows from the east south-east and will keep even the most active visitors cool, so whether you're climbing a village walk or tearing it up with a 4WD tour it's no sweat. Fiji does experience a wet weather season during November to April however these brief, heavy showers are localised. These bursts account for most of Fiji's annual rainfall, which ranges from 2000mm to 3000mm on the main islands and 6000mm in the mountains. As a tropical island, the wet season is a vital part of Fiji's climate and is responsible for the lush environment and plant life that is so plentiful there. Cyclones do occur in Fiji but are normally confined to the wet weather season. The Fijian culture is a relaxed, easy-going and friendly culture however it is still important to respect their customs. When visiting a village modest clothing is recommended, as is taking off your hat (it is considered an insult to the chief to wear one). If you are invited into a home, be gracious and thank your host, and take your shoes off before entering, leaving them at the door. Take note it is also considered an insult to touch someone's head – which is often tempting when surrounded by gorgeous children with big eyes and broad smiles. Also, be prepared to shake hands and answer personal questions like, where are you from, are you married, how many children do you have and so on. Kava is Fiji's most well-known social custom and an essential experience to make your Fiji holiday complete. If invited to try kava, don't hesitate, just accept the offering and enjoy the unique ritual (and the unique numbing effect the drink has). As a sign of thanks it is tradition to offer a gift, usually kava (or yaqona in Fijian), when you visit a village. The sevusevu (or gift) generally costs under F$20 for a half kilo and will be taken care of by your guide. Presented to the Turaga Ni Koro (traditional head of the village) it will be ground into a powder, added to water and served in the Turaga Ni Koro's house. Fijians are some of the most friendly people in the world and are eager to welcome you as a guest into their villages and homes provided you respect their traditions and customs. This will provide a fascinating insight into their traditional way of life and adds a unique element of depth to your Fiji holiday or for a great honeymoon.

Honeymoon Destination the beautifll Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands draw thousands of visitors every year, including scientists, students, naturalists, photographers and more.
Galapagos Islands have almost an embarrassment of riches, an influence and reputation far beyond their physical size. Natural beauties range from the world's deepest and densest rainforest in the east, across mountain landscapes patchworked into tiny fields by indigenous Indians, over the world's second-highest volcano and skim Pacific waters to Darwin's 'Natural Laboratory' of the Galapagos. There are great beaches and hikes on the islands, as well as snorkeling and other water sports. The towns on the islands have a surprising amount of quality souvenirs from all over Ecuador and South America. You can even decide between land-based and cruise ship tours. The Islands are on many people’s “bucketlist” of places to visit. Many retirees go to Galapagos because they finally have the time and money to do so. Unfortunately, by the time they get there, many seniors find that some of the hikes and islands are too challenging for them and they miss out. The Galapagos Islands are best enjoyed by those who are old enough to appreciate them and still young enough to hop from one lava rock to the next, perfect for young newlyweds. Many young couples are not yet established and may avoid seemingly pricey destinations like the Galapagos Islands. Although the costs are undeniable – airfare to and from Ecuador and then to the Galapagos, plus park fees and the cost of cruises or lodging – they are relatively low right now. The worldwide economic downturn has had one positive effect: fewer people are visiting Galapagos and the tour companies and hotels are willing to make deals they would not have considered before.

Kilimanjaro – A Place For Your Perfect Honeymoon

Honeymoon should be devine and different from everything. Centering around massive Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, rising to nearly 20,000 feet), the national park protects the area above 8,850 feet. On ascent, the mountain’s foothills morph into lush forests, serving as home to elephants, leopard and buffalo. Further up are moorlands covered in giant heather, then alpine desert land. Higher still come the ice and snow that make Kilimanjaro famous. Hikes to the top (Uhuru Peak) take six to seven days.

The southern and northern highlands boast a number of impressive mountain ranges, typically rising 500m to 1,000m above their surroundings. Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in the northeast are ancient volcanoes rising to 5,895m and 4,500m respectively. The Relief is characterised by Equatorial to Arctic vegetation (passing through near tropical rainforest, savannah grassland, semi-arid to arid, semi-desert, temperate, moorland, alpine desert to the permanent snows of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

One of the most amazing aspects of the mountain in the present day is the accessibility of its peak to climbers with no mountain climbing equipment or real previous experience of scaling such heights. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain that regular tourists can climb, although it remains a considerable feat of human endurance!

The breathable oxygen at the top is less than half the amount than is common at sea level, and climbers cover at least eighty kilometres on nothing but their own two feet over the five days it takes to reach the top and return.

The coastline is over 804km long with the nearby Islands of Unguja (also known as Zanzibar), Pemba and Mafia. The Islands offer an array of natural, cultural, historical and archeological attractions. Other natural resources are Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest lake and the source of the Nile. In the many game parks and reserves, wildlife roam about free.

Honeymoon Cruise Dream. Have you ever dreamed of a cruise?

Honeymoon CruiseHave you ever dreamed of a cruise? Intimate dinners with family or perhaps someone new? A close evening of dancing followed by a moonlight stroll around the deck, watching the full moon? Perhaps you dream of a huge family reunion as you go from port to port and re-establish closeness. Whatever your fantasy, it undoubtedly is peaceful, joyous, and loving.

The opportunities on a cruise are almost unlimited for parties with old friends, or to seek out new friendships, or having an extended vacation with family and friends. When you book a cruise you open a door to a new way of life.

Being at sea is a great way to spend the first days of your married life together. There's nothing like romantic cruises to de-stress from your wedding. For the most part, everything is taken care of for you, so you have little to worry about. Just relax and roam the open seas! Make sure you pick the best honeymoon cruise for your style and preferences. All cruise ships are not the same in food service, cabin quality, expenses, entertainment and type of crowd. Although cruises have gotten a bad wrap for being "party ships", this isn't necessarily true, depending on which cruise line you choose. So do your research!! Luxury liners are a huge trend for high class travel and some cruise ships offer great packages that are affordable. A registry is also a great way to afford extra perks, like excursions or upgrades, while on your cruise. A lot of the upper scale ships include things like Champagne and flowers that are extra expenses on cheaper lines. But there is much to be said about an inexpensive cruise line from a local port – it's a great way to save on airfare!

Tips: Most cruise destinations are seasonal, so find out if ships travel to your preferred location during your wedding month or postpone your honeymoon until the right month.

Honeymoon in Kahajuraho, MP, India

Close on the heels of the Taj and the piousness of Varanasi; the enigma of Khajuraho, unfolds with the tinkling of temple bells and the graceful movement, of myriad forms, poised in dance and movement, with the beauty of the timeless sculptures. Once used to guard the city gates, Khajuraho, alludes to the imagery of the tall date palms.

While the gates have ceased to exist, the willowy date palms continue to grace this temple town. The temples are a fabulous example of Indo-Aryan architecture, an elegant combination of intricacy and simplicity.

Now a quaint cluster of commerce, set against the backdrop of the magnificent temples, the city comes alive every year, during its Annual Dance Festival, when the maestros of classical dance, perform against the dramatic temple backdrop.

Khajuraho, the temple city of central India, is famous throughout the world for its exquisitely carved temples in stones. Thousands of visitors and tourists from all over the world flock together to envisage this immortal saga of Hindu art and culture engraved in stone by shilpies (stone craftsmen) a millenia ago.

Today, apart from the temples, Khajuraho is a small village but a thousand years ago it was a large city of the Chandelas, medieval Rajput kings who ruled over Central India. Khajuraho is 595 km (370 miles) south-east of Delhi and can be visited by air, rail or road. An overnight train journey from Delhi takes the visitor to Jhansi, from where another morning train takes him to Harpalpur 85 km (53 miles) to the east.
The visitor to Khajuraho cannot but be attracted to the vivid erotic sculptures on the temples walls. The sculptures are mithunas i.e. couple in various erotic poses. There have been many interpretations of their existence and some have criticized them severely. According to one authority, a man and woman in erotic embrace typify the ultimate union of the soul such erotic figures save the temple from beings struck by the lightening. The reason given for this is that Indra, Lord of rainand thunder bolt who himself is a great connoisseur of Kama, will not damage anything pertaining to that.

There are others who attribute to the desire of the sculptor to show life in its naked reality. Some say that it is related to the fertility cult. But a more plausible explanation could be that as the life in totality has been depicted on the temples, sex, which plays a major roe in the life of a grahast should not be left out. The subject of erotic and its philosophical and religious interpretations is not new in the oriental world. They are deeply rooted the social life of the people. In a country where the Linga cult is the source of religious belief and its manifestations sculptures are but a continuation of that tradition which accepts procreation as a major function of life.

The presence of erotic sculptures show that there were no taboos or inhibitions against sex as we have now. The people of that time took a healthy view of things and gave sex its requisite place in its life. Kama or pursuit of pleasure was deemed to be one of the four purusharthas or legitimate aims of life offer a Grahast and was regarded as a stepping stone to moksha, or deliverance. Thereforere, these erotic scenes were not regarded as abnormal or unnatural.
