Our 5N/6D Kashmir Honeymoon Brought Us Close To Nature & Closer To Each Other!

If there’s something that fascinates me the most about traveling, it is the opportunity to unwind amidst nature’s breathtaking beauty and getting to explore new places. One such place on our list was Kashmir since both my wife & I had been hearing about its glory, and so it seemed like the perfect pick for celebrating the start of our new lives.

After the destination was finalized, we were looking for someone who could plan our dream trip, and that’s when we came across TravelTriangle’s honeymoon packages for Kashmir on Google. The idea of getting three quotes from different agents impressed us and we quickly requested for one. It was great to see how everything from booking to planning happened so smoothly. Since I’m more of a nature admirer than someone who loves man-made experiences, we also got our package customized by getting all the surreal places to see on a Kashmir honeymoon included in our trip itinerary.

Here are the details of our Kashmir honeymoon package:

Our honeymoon kick-started the moment we arrived in Srinagar, which is actually a paradise on earth. We were welcomed by Mr. Bashir, who was our driver and guide for the whole trip. He took us directly to the houseboat on the Nigeen Lake where our stay was reserved for the day. And just like Srinagar, the houseboat turned out to be equally glorious.

From its ambience to the hospitality, everything was top-notch. But there are a lot of things to do in Srinagar that make it such an amazing place to see during one’s honeymoon. Later in the evening, we went for a shikara ride, which undoubtedly proved what makes Kashmir so exquisite and famous. The romantic ride was one of the most wonderful moments of our trip, and even getting it captured wasn’t enough.

Apart from the first day, the last two days of our honeymoon in Kashmir were again spent in Srinagar, given how beautiful and accessible it is from the other places. So, we skipped Sonmarg for a rejuvenating time in Srinagar and spend the last two days visiting the gorgeous gardens of Kashmir. While all of there were a sight to look at, what left both of us in awe and smitten was the popular Tulip Garden. The blooming tulips added color to our overall trip experience, and there’s definitely no doubt about it!

2. Gulmarg: Enjoying the snow

Amongst all the places to see on a Kashmir honeymoon, Gulmarg is the most surreal and serene. We drove to this hill town on the second morning of our trip and it was an experience of a lifetime. The smooth drive, stunning landscapes, and snow left us pretty awestruck.

While we were in the town of Gulmarg, we stayed in a heritage hotel, which was again a marvel to look at. Both of us spent the day together exploring the town and indulging in all sorts of adventures. Needless to say, a romantic trip to Kashmir would stay incomplete without visiting Gulmarg.

3. Pahalgam: Visiting Betaab Valley, Aru & Chandanwari

For a very long time, we had only heard how beautiful Pahalgam was, but on the third day we witnessed nature’s magic with our own eyes. And what further added to our romantic experience was the mild rain and the refreshing breeze that had just touched Pahalgam.

Both of us spent the day enjoying the view and relaxing in out hotel, which was located right opposite to the Lidder River. Later, we had a scrumptious dinner and called it a day.

We began the next morning in Pahalgam on a sweeter note with a visit to the Betaab Valley, Aru Valley, and Chandanwari. I must say that these places to visit in Pahalgam were a sheer delight for both our eyes and souls.

High Points Of Our Kashmir Honeymoon

  • Houseboat stay in Srinagar
  • Visiting Chandanwari

Low Points Of Our Kashmir Honeymoon

  • There weren’t any low points during our trip as such except that we wished our hotel in Srinagar could have been better. It was decent in comparison to our other stays, which were incredibly blissful.

Tips For Future Travelers

  • Kashmir is a beautiful place for honeymooners and there are a lot of places to see. However, it’s best that you do not spend your time running from one place to another, and stick to 2 or 3 major destinations.
  • Plan your romantic trip to Kashmir in a way that the duration is at least 5 to 6 days.
  • While shopping in Kashmir or opting for rides, make sure you bargain a bit. A little bit is always accepted. Though, make sure you show your gratitude to those who actually provide the service by giving them a tip.
  • Pack your clothing essentials keeping the weather in mind.
  • If possible, do visit Sonmarg.
  • Also, don’t forget to carry a good camera.

Our overall experience with TravelTriangle was beyond impeccable. Their efficient planning of our honeymoon in Kashmir ensured that we had a hassle-free vacation. Even our travel agent, Peacock Holidays was very supportive and approachable at all the times. Our honeymoon turned out to be so blissful that if there was a chance to relive it, we would do it right away!

“Traveling for me is meditation. Whenever there is too much chaos in my life, I plan a trip with my friends or family, pack my bags, and leave all my worries behind. Travelling is essential for me as it helps me declutter my life.

I usually plan all my trips by myself. But for our honeymoon, I wanted to make all the arrangements in advance to spend all my time with my wife. Among all the travel websites, I found my requirements best met at TravelTriangle. So, I wasted no time in booking my honeymoon trip with them.

We really had an awesome experience on our honeymoon trip to Bali. It was an eclectic mix of romance, thrill, and leisure. Here are the details of our trip”:

Trip Type: Honeymoon

Day 1: Arrival in Bali

IMG-20180525-WA0206 1

We reached Bali late in the evening and headed straight to our hotel in Kuta to get some rest. Our stay in Grand Istana Rama in Kuta was an exuberant affair. Right from the Hindu-style entrance to its plunge pool, everything in the hotel was appealing. We got a nice and cozy waterfront room with the resplendent views of the Kuta Beach right from our balcony.

Day 2: Thrill in the exotic Bali Waters

IMG-20180525-WA0210 1IMG-20180525-WA0212 1

After having a good night’s sleep and recharging our batteries, we were ready for all the adventure in Bali that we had planned. Bali is famous for its numerous thrilling water activities and our plan was to strike them all. My wife and I had a lot of fun Parasailing, Scuba diving, Jet Skiing, Banana Boat, and Sea Walking. We were exhausted by the end of the day but our little adventures in the exotic waters of Bali were worth every ounce of energy. I recommend everyone to partake in sea activities when you visit Bali during your next vacation.

Day 3: Mount Batur and Monkey Forest

IMG-20180525-WA0274IMG-20180525-WA0275 1
IMG-20180525-WA0215 1IMG-20180525-WA0214

We reserved this day for sightseeing around Kuta. Our first stop was the Mount Batur, the sacred mountain in Kintamani which is also an active volcano. Not even my words can describe the exhilarating scenery of the Batur Mountain and the crater lake. It was stupendous! We clicked so many photos to capture memories and the beautiful essence of this place.

Our next stop was the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary which we found out to be fascinating. One of the most popular attractions in Bali, we found the notorious Balinese long-tailed monkeys swinging through canopies around the sacred temple and fed them bananas. The mossy relics and statues inside the sanctuary were equally charming.

Day 4: ‘Best Museum Visit Ever’

IMG-20180525-WA0227IMG-20180525-WA0226IMG-20180525-WA0225 1IMG-20180525-WA0222 (1)

After having two exciting days in a row, we decided to slow down and chillax in our hotel. In the afternoon, we went to the Dream Museum Zone, a 3D museum in Bali. Generally, I find museums boring but this 3D museum was so much fun and entertaining. Our phone gallery is filled with our innumerable photos from this place. This was the best museum I had ever visited in my life.

Planning your honeymoon in Bali but confused about what to do? These Bali honeymoon stories help you find your best honeymoon trip ever!

Real honeymooners. Real stays. Real opinions to help you make the right choice.

Day 5: My first experience of River Rafting

IMG-20180525-WA0233 1

One of the water sports activities was still left on my list. Since I had never done river rafting before, it was a special experience for me. Rafting on the strong currents of the river gave a great kick to my adrenaline levels.

In the evening, we checked into our one bedroom with private pool villa at Transera Grand Kancana Villas Bali. The stylish retreat was designed in a traditional Balinese village and was our high point in terms of staying experience.

Day 6: Tanah Lot Temple Tour & Romantic Evening Cruise

IMG-20180525-WA0237IMG-20180525-WA0236 1IMG-20180525-WA0242 1IMG-20180525-WA0269 1IMG-20180525-WA0218 1

One of the most important landmarks of Bali, Tanah Lot Temple stupefied us with its picturesque backdrop and amazing stone architecture. One of the best experiences was crossing the waters to reach the temple. The holy water around the temple was so clear and refreshing that you could even taste its sweetness.

In the evening, we boarded the Bounty Cruise in Bali to spend a romantic evening in the waters. We were ushered with a traditional Balinese Welcome and a dance performance. After having a sumptuous complimentary dinner, we danced our night away on the cruise. It was one of the most cherished experiences on our honeymoon trip to Bali.

Day 7: The Stellar Uluwatu Temple

IMG-20180525-WA0257

We ended our honeymoon trip to Bali with an exciting visit to the great Uluwatu Temple where we realized the conception of Bali. The stellar Kecak dance performance by the temple dancers depicting the tale of Ramayana was simply superb. It was a great end to our romantic holiday in Bali.

My wife and I had a long list of experiences on our honeymoon in Bali and brought back a huge bundle of memories from our trip. Thanks to TravelTriangle, it could not have been better.

Wow moments from our honeymoon trip to Bali

Every moment on our honeymoon trip to Bali was WOW. It’d be a great injustice to leave any. But still if I have to choose, my wow moments would be:

  • Scuba diving in the ocean and swimming with the fishes
  • Kintamani Tour left us dumbstruck.
  • Admiring art in the 3D museum
  • Comedy Circus on the cruise
  • Winning the kissing competition on the cruise
  • Fire Dance at Uluwatu Temple

Did you stumble any negative experiences on the trip
Even though we had no inconvenience of any sorts at our hotel in Kuta, the experience could have been better.

Do you think you missed out on anything
Bali is surrounded with so many exotic islands. I wish we had more time to hop on the Island Tour to soak in the beauty of these islands.

How was your overall experience with TravelTriangle
Our traveling experience on TravelTriangle was nothing but perfect. I can rely on TravelTriangle for planning all my trips in the future.

Future tips for travelers
I would recommend all the couples on their honeymoon to stay in an exotic villa with a private pool.

Isn’t this couple such a darling?

If you also want to get all lovey-dovey with your spouse, book a romantic holiday in Bali and have exciting adventures together in the exotic locations of Bali island.

So, make the most of where you are and live in the moment!

4. Trying New Things And Experiences

travel resolutions for 2018: Try New Things And Experiences

It’s no use going to a foreign land and looking only for Indian food and Indian supermarkets. Get a taste of the culture, cuisines, and local experiences like festivals and social gatherings. Explore those crowded flea markets than fancy shopping malls. Eat at roadside cafes than lavish restaurants.

5. Less Hotels, More Hostels

Hostels are a blessing for solo travelers and group vacationers alike.

6. Getting Travel Insurance

travel resolutions for 2018: Get Travel Insurance

Action-packed gigs like skydiving, cliff jumping, skiing, rock climbing, paragliding, and scuba diving are taking over the travel scene like anything. With such adventure oriented travel becoming more popular, it is imperative to get your travel insurance in place. Depending on the company, your travel insurance shall cover flight cancellations, damage or loss of baggage and personal items, emergency medical needs, and even accidental death and dismemberment. A good travel insurance will account for only 5% of your ticket price, which is a very small price to pay for your safety while on the road.

7. Blending In With The Locals

travel resolutions for 2018: Blend In With The Locals

Travelers are usually skeptical of meeting new people in a foreign land. “What if he’s a thug?” “What if he robs me?” “What if he’s not friendly?” Get over your assumptions on what people might be. Instead, take a step forward and find out! You’ll be surprised as to how friendly and welcoming people can be in other parts of the world. Got invited to a party or dinner? Don’t hesitate to join in!

8. More Road Trips

Car ride on the extensive motorway and widespread coastal roads of Mauritius

Road trips are a great way of exploring not just the destination you plan to visit, but all the ones falling in between. Though more time consuming, road journeys are a more enjoyable way of travel than flights and trains. It lets you explore more places en route, meet new people, bond with your friends and family, experience the changing landscapes, and the best part – go wherever you want to go!

9. Making Use Of Long Weekends

travel resolutions for 2018: Make Use Of All Long Weekends

Explore nearby places and witness how different cities and states celebrate major festivals. Short getaways are the best way to refresh yourselves and charge up your energy.

10. Traveling Responsibly

travel resolutions for 2018: Travel Responsibly

The reason many beach destinations are now being tagged as ‘polluted’ is only because of us travelers. We take home happy memories and pretty souvenirs and leave behind a pile of broken bottles and plastic bags for others to cut themselves over. This year, say no to polluting the destination you’re visiting, and stick to local laws enforced to ensure cleanliness and hygiene.

 

With these travel resolutions to make for 2018, you’re guaranteed to turn this year around and explore more of this world than you ever did!
