When we think of a honeymoon, the first thought that crosses our mind is “where?”. It is the time when you and your spouse rekindle the sparks of your love life. A time spent just with the two of you without the distraction and worries of your rigid daily life. Away from the noise of the cities and preferably closer to nature. The typical recipe to cook up the most romantic dish, called the honeymoon often entails a gorgeous beach, mesmerising waterfalls, or a majestic mountain range. So when you are planning this once in a lifetime adventure for yourself and your significant other, it is best to keep these factors in mind. And so, to help the newlyweds, here are some honeymoon destinations surrounded by mountains for consideration.

Parasailing, hang gliding, hiking, cycling, and bathing in hot springs while having the love of your life by your side will make the activities even more enjoyable.
