In India a honeymoon is the culmination of a long drawn wedding process. Among affluent families the process commences with the engagement of the bride and groom at a lavish function to herald the union of not just two individuals but two like-minded families. In a more lavish function bordering on opulence the two individuals tie the knot literally and exchange vows in the presence of a huge gathering that has assembled to shower blessings on the newly wedded couple. Soon after, the couple embarks on a journey popularly called as the honeymoon where the two can exchange vows in intimate privacy and discover each other to undertake the journey of married life.

Ooty is truly a honeymooners’ delight for the enchanting and intimate settings in which two lovebirds can cement their relationship. There are several great places of interest that honeymooners would love to explore.
The Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden is a lovely place for the honeymooners to bond. If one of the honeymooning couple is claustrophobic then it makes sense to get out of the hotel room and gallivant in the greenery of the gardens. There are lots of nooks and corners in the garden that can be explored without hindering privacy. The garden hosts several special sections designated as Conservatory, Italian Garden, New Garden and Lower Garden. Each one is a veritable feast for the eyes sporting a variety of plant species of all types including 127 species of ferns. The Botanical Garden is a must-see in Ooty.
The Pykara New Boat House
The Pykara River offers a tremendous opportunity for newlyweds to blend with nature. The paddle boat is as good a vehicle as any for the honeymooners to spend quality time. Paddling to the center of the Pykara Reservoir and letting the guard down is an activity that is very private. The honeymooners can spend hours on the serene waters of the reservoir lapping against the boat setting a rhythm that lulls the couple to experience nirvana.
Reaching the highest point of a romantic holiday in Ooty is incomplete without a visit to the highest peak in the Nilgiri Hills. Just imagine the panoramic view of the valley below that can be witnessed from a height of 8650 feet, the elevation of the Doddabetta Peak. The reserve forest located in the area surrounding the peak is a nature lover’s dream. Nature’s magic comes alive in this area with lovely scenes etched in memory. For the more daring couples the trek in the reserve is a great way to get to know one another.
Ooty is truly a honeymooner’s paradise as it were.
