A. The district of Kinnaur- Majestic Kalpa and Sangla valley

You will never forget your togetherness in this God’s most favorable romantic place. Kinnaur is perceived to be a magical land aka the land of fairy tales and fantasies which have a spectacular terrain of lush green valley, orchards, vineyards, snow clad peaks and cold desert mountains. It is a border district of Himachal Pradesh. Kinnaur is also rich in flora & fauna. The culture and language are different from other parts of the state. Kinnaur, the tribal district of Himachal Pradesh, lies 250 km away from Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh and is located on the Hindustan Tibet Road. The landscape of the area varies from lush green orchards of the scenic Sangla Valley to the magnificence of the Hangrang Valley. The massive snow laden ranges which provide a regal dignity to the scene are dominated by the reverend peak Lord Shive of Kinner Kailash. Kalpa is one of the biggest and the most beautiful villages of Kinnaur. One can enter Kinnaur district at Village Chshora and go down the road built on vertical rock and it is a rare treat to travel on this road which is a great engineering feat.

B. Chindi-Karsog Valley

A secluded paradise.  
The best or the must-do thing in Chindi is “Nothing” and spend your time with your love-mate. Seriously, it’s not easy to find a secluded place as this, so close to civilization. Laze around in the sun, enjoy the scenery, the silence and occasional chirps of birds. It is truly one of the most refreshing things for a city dweller. Take a book along, catch up on your reading list! We have forgotten the little joys of life in the urban race. In case you are not the one to laze around for long, you can take a walk to the village or to the woods – it offers some beautiful views of the Karsog Valley. You can also explore the numerous Ancient temples which dot the valley.
The only best option to stay is HPTDC resort THE MAMLESHWAR which has all the facilities with excellent service and economy. A nice cozy place

C. Naggar











Situated on the left bank of river Beas at an altitude of 1851m, Naggar - an ancient town commands extensive views, especially to the North West of the valley. Naggar was the former capital of Kullu. It was founded by Raja Visudhpal and continued as a headquarters of the State until the capital was transferred to Sultanpur (Kullu) by Jagat Singh in 1460 A.D. Today it is the converted resort of HPTDC. With excellent rooms, facilities and stunning views, this ancient and beautiful "Naggar Palace" is a perfect honeymoon spot.

D. Shimla

Shimla has always been a popular honeymoon places, what with its romantic climate, plush hills, snowy peaks, British architecture and The Mall, along with temples, monasteries, and churches. It is at its best during the summer, as well as winter months.
Then there is Kulu Manali, a favorite of Indian place for couples, with greenery and sprawling landscape. It is one of the best destinations for a trip filled with adventure sports, like hiking, skiing, trekking, mountaineering, biking, angling, and river rafting.

Athirappilly is largely untouched by the crowd that comes to Kerala for sightseeing and tourism, and there is a tree house resort in Athirappilly that provides unparalleled rumble, roar and views of waterfalls amidst the forests with seclusion and privacy.You can sit out on the lush green lawn in this resort and watch as the waterfall disappears at the end of the day as sunlight fades away and you can also have a pristine view of waterfalls while doing a swim in the pool that faces waterfalls. This honeymoon place that is the hidden gem in Kerala is an ultimate seclusion for any couple.

B. Chembra Peak Wayanad

Chembra Peak is the highest peak in Wayanad district of Kerala and a perennial heart shaped lake half way to the top of the peak is rated among the best honeymoon spots in Kerala.The lake is believed to be perennial and always has water in it at any time of the year. The heart shaped honeymoon lake is halfway to the peak and you need to walk and trek through about a km or two of dense trees to reach the top of the peak after reaching the lake. The Lake is mostly covered with mist and snow and is an ideal place for a couples hangout and is rated among the best honeymoon places in Kerala

C. Houseboat Cruise in Kumarakom

Best moments of Honeymoon:  Houseboat Cruise in Kumarakom
Best moments of Honeymoon:  Houseboat Cruise in Kumarakom


Kerala still boasts many of its original waterways in backwaters of Alleppey or Kumarakom. Take a cruise through the backwaters in Kumarakom for up-close views of verdant rice paddies and verdant coconut groves. I strongly recommend Kumarakom over Alleppey for couples as Kumarakom has vast backwaters unlike the narrow backwater ways in Alleppey which are much more crowded.

D. Your Private  Sexy Kerala Cottage in Marari Beach with swimming pool

Marari's shimmering turquoise-blue waters are an attraction in their own right with bright sun, and delicious food attracts honeymooners and seasoned travelers alike. Maybe you would prefer that dip before you start the morning with a beach walk in the morning in a swimming pool inside the private cottage. Swimming in a vast pool where privacy is secluded is an instant pick-me-up for any partner. Make some great memories and play some couple games, maybe. Nothing relaxes tired legs after a day’s could walk and stroll like spending some the couple time in the swimming pool before a good nights sleep as well

3. Tamil Nadu


Hills: The beautiful Tamil Nadu

Most of the time valley falls in right side of the train while going towards Araku from Vizag and waterfalls remain at left side. On the way, you can see small and big water falls. The green valley and river combination give a spectacular view from the train. The train also passes above the World famous Borra caves, eventually reaching ARAKU in 4 hours ending your dream sequence.

Exotic Zuluk from Thambi point
Exotic Zuluk from Thambi point


Why are you a third-rate tourist

1. You follow the beaten path where thousand have gone
2. You are not a tasteful
3. You love urban life and not interested in exotic, hidden and less traveled places
4. You are impatient and always in a hurry
5. You take holidays because of compulsions and not because you love traveling and nature
6. You are NOT a discoverer
 Change your life before you die!

See India and visit exotic Zuluk in Sikkim before run-over by mediocre tourists


Why Zuluk


Or Dzuluk is a small hamlet that resides amongst the serene, beautiful landscape of the Eastern Himalayas. At a height of about 9800 ft, this perfectly painted village is still virgin for it is a newly discovered tourist destination and remotely accessed. The natural beauty which Zuluk offers is a treat for one's eyes. With a population of about 750 people, the tranquility of Zuluk is in the air. One can feel the rejuvenating freshness in spite of the chilly wind that travels from the Himalayas.
Zuluk is an abode of peace. Situated at an altitude of around 10,000 ft above the sea level and perched on the rugged terrain of the lower Himalayas in East Sikkim, Zuluk is a hamlet close to Indo-China border. Zuluk is located on the famous Old-Silk-Route. Zuluk is a relatively new offbeat destination of Sikkim and has a primitive charm.

Zuluk is the name of the valley with a small hilly village and famous for the zig-zag roads which is a definitely an eye-catching landscape. Zuluk offers an excellent view of the sunrise on the Himalayas. There is a place called Ganek, which is situated at the height of 10600 ft which is famous for its exquisite view of sunrise at dawn.The rising of the sun is a phenomenon which is beyond description. During the sunset, the landscape view becomes more breathtaking. The snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas along with the guardian of the Sikkim, Mt. Kanchandzongha make an excellent showcase in the entire north.

Winter is severe in Zuluk with heavy to very heavy snowfall and freezing temperature while summer is wet and foggy. During the summer, Zuluk and its surrounding hills are covered with thousands of blooming rhododendron. Zuluk during these months is a riot of colors due to the variety of rhododendron that can be seen here.

In the travel circuit, this territory has been opened to the tourists very recently. Even now most of the route is restricted area due to its international boundary with ( Tibet) China and the route is controlled by the Indian Army named as – “ Cloud Warriors”.

Zuluk is full of nature’s boon

Surrounded by virgin wild forests, it has a large diversity of the Himalayan fauna. It’s quite common to get a view of the variety of birds such as Monal Peasant, Blood Peasant, Snow Peasant, Khaleez Peasant and others. Viewing Red Panda is a rare luck in Zuluk. Himalayan Weasel are also can be seen in the capering mood.

In Zuluk, there is no conventional Hotel or Resort. Some home-stays are there which run by local people with attached bath and basic necessities. But those homestay cottages are clean and hygienic. Room Heater or fire Places which are called “ Bukhari” in local language arrange by home-stay owners to make bedroom warm and comfortable.

Tourist Places Around


1. Lungthung, Zuluk


Lungthung, one of the well-known sightseeing, is at an elevation of around 12,400 ft above the sea level. The site offers abode to different species of pheasant such as monal pheasant, khaleez pheasant and blood pheasant. Along with this, tourists can also spot red panda, the national animal of Sikkim, at this site.

Tourists can also explore the famous Laxmi Chawk, which lies in the proximity of Lungthung. It is a dense forest that houses mosses, lichens, rhododendrons, and ferns.

The village of Lunghthung-Dhupidara located at almost 11,500 feet is perched on a hilltop with panoramic views of Mt. Kanchenjungha on one side and the winding roads of Zuluk on the other. This shot has been taken from winding roads of Zuluk near Thambi

About 4 kms ahead of Lungthung is Tukla, known for the battle of Tukla. A contingent of British army led by Lt. Col Francis Younghusband invaded Tibet through this route in 1903. They faced fierce resistance from the Tibetan fighters and the battle of Tukla ensued. The Tibetan soldiers suffered heavy loss in the face of British firearms. It is said that close to 2000 Tibetan soldiers lost their life in this battle. There is a memorial here remembering the British soldiers who fought and fell here.

3.The Kalpokhari Lake

In summer Kalpokhari Lake


It falls on way to Adi Baba Mandir. Wild ducks swim in the transparent water oh the Lake which freezes during the winter. The Adi Baba Mandir is a memorial built in the honor of Sepoy Bhajan Singh (23 Punjab ) who met with a tragic accident in this area and died. His Samadhi was constructed near Chhokhya Chho but was later shifted to the Watershed Memorial near LOG BR. Wreath lying ceremony is held at this site in the memory of all those Valliant soldiers who laid their lives at the Watershed defending their motherland. The road to Gnathang Valley is very often covered with snow. This area is being developed as a Ski point in Sikkim. Chinese Water Towers on Jelepla are visible with naked eyes.


Permit
You need to pre-arrange special permit for visiting this restricted area that is issued from a place called Rangli. The permits are also issued from Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. At the time of writing this article, Sikkim government has not come out with a clear policy on tourism in the area. Hence the permit related issues keep changing and please consult our travel experts for the latest update on Zuluk permit.

How to Reach Zuluk



A memorable zig-zag road to Zuluk
A memorable zig-zag road to Zuluk


  1. Zuluk is about 4 hours from Gangtok (90 km). Technically you may travel from Gangtok to Zuluk through Tsongo lake and Baba Mandir, but the permit for this route is relatively difficult to get. The more common route goes through Pakyong and Lingham.
  2. If you are traveling from any other place, such as Darjeeling, Pelling or NJP / Bagdogra, you have to first travel to Rongpo, the entry point of Sikkim. From here a less trodden route will take you to Dzuluk through Rorathang.
  3. People traveling to Dzuluk from East Sikkim adjacent Bengal region, that is the Kalimpong subdivision, would do better to travel through Pedong, Reshi, Aritar route.


The travel time and distance from different major destinations 


The actual travel time will depend on prevailing road condition at the time of travel. Trying to guess travel time based on distance and average vehicle speed mostly proves futile in this region.

  • From Gangtok – 90 km, about 4 hours
  • From NJP / Bagdogra - 160 km about 6 hours
  • From Kalimpong – 90 km, about 3.5 hours
  • From Pelling – 150 km, about 7 hours
  • From Darjeeling – 140 km, about 5 hours


Places to Stay

In my view, the best place is:


Home-stays

  • +Dilmaya Resort-Phone:098301 07780
  • Zuluk Sojourn Homestay-Phone:099032 95920
  • Palzor Home Stay-Phone:097341 50546
