Barog is an emerging hot spot for vacations and honeymoons and it is rapidly gaining popularity. It’s no longer just a weekend getaway for Delhiites, but its picturesque settings, its pine woods and the history around its famous rail tunnel, makes it a good pick for a quiet honeymoon. It’s a good choice, especially if you want to ditch going to the conventional Kasauli, and try something different instead.

If your honeymoon happens to be anywhere between March and July, this is a good pick to enjoy your better half’s company amidst mesmerizing views and tranquility! Except for extreme winters and monsoon, you can enjoy paragliding throughout the year, along with winter sports like skiing in December and January.
But it’s view is not the only thing that makes this place special. There are quite a few places you could explore at Narkanda- The Jalori pass, the Mahamaya temple, the Stoke farm and the Tannu Jubbar lake.
Roughly an hour’s drive away from Kufri, a popular hill station and an alternative to Shimla, Chail has a view to die for. You could spend a pleasant, romantic time at this hill station, which is located on the slopes, overseeing an ocean of pine and apricot trees.
