Updated: 25 August 2017
India, with its mountains and beaches was, probably, made for doe-eyed honeymooners! The country’s natural landscape is spellbinding, to say the least. Apart from the few commonly known places, there are many small cities that a newly married couple could visit for a blissful beginning of their marriage. Here’s some of the best.

Coorg

A relatively small town in Karnataka, Coorg makes a romantic destination for couples who aren’t fond of the hustle and bustle. Although the town is mostly known for its coffee, Coorg has much more to offer. There are endless roads lined with tall bamboo trees, three wildlife sanctuaries and a national park. In the heart of the town a 17th century fort stands humble and beautiful. Coorg’s locally produced wine, honey and coffee should not be missed!
