Are you wondering where to go for your honeymoon? Do both you and your partner love the hills a lot? Well then a very nice place that you can consider going to is Ranikhet.
This is a small and quiet hill station in Uttarakhand.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay here, then you can always opt for a Ranikhet resort which will make your stay all the more exciting and comfortable.
Ways to reach Ranikhet
Ranikhet is a pretty well connected hill station, particularly when you are travelling from any other major metropolitan of the country. You can either fly or take bus or a train to Ranikhet. While there are direct buses to Ranikhet, when you decide to fly to this hill station your flight will land at Pant nagar which is the airport that is the closest, from where you can take a car and drive up to the hill station. When travelling by a train you will have to get down at Kathgodam and then again take a car from there. Ranikhet is only 360kms away from Delhi, so if you want to infuse the adventure spirit of a long drive in your honeymoon, then you can hire a car and drive from the capital to this cantonment town.
Getting your hotel reservations in order

Do check for reviews online so that you can be double sure that the place that you are making reservations in is a good one.
