If your bae is as much of an adventure junkie as you are, and won’t mind following you on a bungee jump, why not have an adventurous honeymoon instead of the sterotypical villas in the Maldives and Switzerland? After all, love grows when you experience things together, right? By Shubhanjana Das

1. Lakshadweep Islands

AGATTI ISLAND Featuring:@rajiv_srivastava Agatti Islands is considered another jewel from the Lakshadweep group of islands in India. It is majorly known for its blissful beauty of coral reefs but the scenic beauty of the island is mesmerizing too. The island is situated on one of the coral isles of Lakshadweep islands and is few of the islands from the Lakshadweep group that is inhabited by people. Tourists often travel to Agatti Islands to bask in the sun, the white sand with crystal clear water under clear blue skies. With a total area of a little over 3 square kilometres, the island may be small compared to many other islands but it is nothing but a sheer paradise for beach lovers and offbeat travellers. The beautiful Agatti island stretches over an area of 8 kilometres, and it is sparsely populated with around 8000 inhabitants. There is, however, no dearth of natural beauty on this splendid island. One may explore the island on foot or rent a two-wheeler to commute. Every corner of the island is rich with natural vegetation and beautiful geographical formations. #lakshadweep #minicoy #beach #kavaratti #india #island #boat #lagoon #incredibleindia #blue #islandlife #photography #people #coralparadise #lakshadweepislands #click #lifeatmaliku #documentary #minicoyfest #traditions #traditiosaroundtheworld #coralislands

Sipping a martini by the beach in an exotic destination abroad may have its own charm, but basking under the sultry sun on the golden shores of the Indian Ocean with a humble coconut water in hand after an exhilarating experience under or above water is something many couples are opting for. From scuba diving to water skiing, canoeing to kayaking and of course, snorkelling, Lakshadweep is the off-beat honeymoon destination for water babies who love their daily dose of adrenaline.

2. Gulmarg

The perfect balance of opulence, comfort, luxury, adventure, surprises and adrenaline, Gulmarg is one of the few places in India where you can experience and try Heli-skiing. Besides, there’s skiing on some of the best powders in the country, trekking, a majestic Gondola ride over the snow-swathed mountains and of course, endless cups of the heavenly Kahwa.

3. Jim Corbett National Park

Okay, going to a national park for your honeymoon might not be the first thought to strike your mind but hear us out. The absolute piety of the moment when you, sitting hand-in-hand with your beau in one of its jeep safaris witness a wild beast on the way is unimaginable until you experience it. Angling, bridge slithering, rock climbing, river crossing and river rafting are the other options available to you in the green treasures of Jim Corbett.

4. Rishikesh

The north of India is home to some of the most unique adventure activities that you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. From a yoga retreat to bungee jumping and white water rafting, Rishikesh comes with a whole list of activities you can challenge your partner-in-crime for. Try your hand in waterfall trekking, rappelling, body surfing and even mountain biking for a honeymoon that will be a conversation starter amongst your friends.
