Top 5 Honeymoon destinations in India

With super views of the Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal Ranges, and with mountain adventures beckoning from all directions, Manali is a year-round magnet for tourists. Backpackers come to hang out in the hippy villages around the main town; adventure tourists come for trekking, paragliding, rafting and skiing; and Indian honeymoon couples or families come for the cool mountain air and their first taste of snow on a day trip to Rohtang La.

Shimla sprawls for miles, but the official centre of town is Scandal Point. From here, the flat open area known as the Ridge stretches east to Christ Church, where trails lead uphill through the forest towards the Jakhu Temple. A jagged line of snow-covered peaks is clearly visible from April to June, and in October and November. There are some particularly rewarding forested walks in this eastern part of Shimla. The town itself is a fairy-tale town , small and charming and totally worth spending a few romantic moments with the man of your life.

Beside shimmering Lake Pichola, with the ochre and purple ridges of the wooded Aravalli Hills stretching away in every direction, Udaipur has a romance of setting unmatched in Rajasthan and arguably in all India. Fantastical palaces, temples, havelis and countless narrow, crooked, colourful streets add the human counterpoint to the city’s natural charms. If Jaipur is the pink city and Jodhpur the blue, Udaipur is the city of cream, rose and honeysuckle hues. The huge, cupola-crowned City Palace lines the eastern shore of Lake Pichola, with its balconies gazing out at Udaipur’s other famous landmark, the Lake Palace – a fairy-tale confection that seems to float on the lake’s waters, gleaming by day and spotlit by night. Eastward, away from the lake shore, extends a tangled inner city of lanes lined with homes, temples, shops and businesses that is fascinating to explore.
Been said as the heaven on Earth,Srinagar ( Kashmir) is one of the oldest found honeymoon spot. Beautiful surreal lakes and landscape will utterly make you forget all the worries and you'll be left embracing the beauty of the place. The romantic nights in the house boats is one must-have experience when you are in the valley.

Know for the sandy beaches, Rave parties, Hippy lifestyle and cheap booze . Goa can be a crazy choice for honeymoon but on the other hand it can be a favorite spot for gay couples where there are a lots of means for entertainment. Casinos, bar, massages, sun bath, water sport etc. Goa also a very beautiful natural side to it. The out-scuds of Goa are beautiful and unplucked making it a perfect spot for love birds who prefer calm days and rocking nights.

A two nights gang-bang.

During our last gay weekend getaway to Alwar, we received a lots of suggestions from guys who wanted to have a gay group holiday in Rishikesh. Thanks to those guys, a ton, for such a brilliant idea.  Many Dudes have shown a keen interest for the gay weekend getaway to Rishikesh and now the boys are up and ready for a gang-bang on "an all gay" adventure holiday in Rishikesh by PINK VIBGYOR in  April. The adventure lovers have surprised us with their overwhelming response & have encouraged us to let on more guys to make it a bigger gang. We have decided to keep it completely simple & hence guys will be accommodated in tents, luxury tents. There will be a bonfire on both the nights with cold beer. River rafting on day II is arranged by Pink Vibgyor for all the sports lover (yes gay guys love dangerous sports, well many does!) & that is included in the tour package, awesome isn't it!

The idea of gay group weekend getaway holidays is to bring the fragile Indian queer community closer & be able to be ourselves for at least a weekend. Our holiday destinations ensures safety, privacy & discretion. We want to make all guys comfortable. From guys who are struggling with their new found self & guys in deep closet to the loud slutty queens. We strive to keep our tour prices the minimal so that even students can join us. Everyone above 18 years can join us in the tour, be it single or a couple of love birds or friends. Guys from all ages are welcomed as in the gay community everyone has an audience. We have had guys from Bangalore on our last Alwar trip that sparked a hope that our team will have friends across the country.
We are expecting this idea of  weekend gay group holiday in India to be a trend so that guys from across the country can feel comfortable with the society and more importantly themselves.

Celebrate Holi in India, with PINK VIBGYOR

With the end of February, the month of March brings a lot of excitement in store. The change of season from the coldest to spring and summer – the time when flowers start to bloom, one puts some vibrant shorts and tees and head out under the sun, showing some skin is nearly on. The arrival of summer is the arrival of a new routine. In the month of March, India brings one of the most famous festivals in the country, Holi – a celebration signifying the arrival of spring season.


Gay men holi 

Holi is a very distinctive cultural festival that evokes the cheerful spirit of the spring season. Well known for its lively and energetic celebrations, the Holi festival is eminently linked with colors and water. People engage themselves in playing holi – hand size balloons are filled up with water, everyone takes color powders in their hands – and they apply the colors on and throw the balloons at one another. This is how the celebration goes and it is companied with a lot of fun and merry-making.


Holi India 

 This beautiful festival is linked to ancient stories and myths. The generally regarded and popular story is the story of the two deities, Krishna and Radha. Legend has that young Krishna, who had dark skin tone wanted his complexion to be like his beloved, Radha's extremely fair skin. In a mischievous disposition, he applied color on his beloved’s face. Following this ancient legend, even now, lovers apply colors on their beloved’s faces in a playful way and as an expression of love.

 Holi In India, pink vibgyor

 Travelling to India during this festive month of March is an experience of a lifetime. Visit places where Holi is celebrated most exuberantly. You will come across a very different and unique scenario where you will see people having fun and enjoying themselves playing with colors and water, but the more amusing part is when you participate in playing it – no matter what, it leaves you with fond and cheerful memories.

In a village in Uttar Pradesh, Barsana, the womenfolk beat up men from neighboring village of Nandgaon with sticks, which is particularly known as ‘Lathmar’ Holi celebrations. It is worth visiting the village for a dose of experience. In the areas of Mathura and Vrindavan, the celebrations begin much prior to the actual time of the festival. Mathura, four hours from Delhi is the place where Lord Krishna was born, and Vrindavan, the place where he spent his childhood days. The capital of the country is also nonetheless energetic and lively; Delhi brings an occasion of color, music and madness during this period, including the Holi Cow Festival. Holi festival continues to spread in places like Shantiniketan and Purulia in West Bengal and Jaipur in Rajasthan. The southern states of the country are quite subdued and solemn regarding this festival. The festival of Holi is truly a wonder with all the fun, enjoyment and energy. The festival has now gained a lot of popularity even across the globe.

A town where there is so much of diversity in activities.Rishikesh is a small town in Dehradun, Uttrakhand. The town is the gateway to the Himalayas. The holy Ganga flows in Rishikesh. Pilgrims come to the city to take a dip in Ganga and cleanse all the sin.

It is a hub for thrilling water sport  like river rafting, Kayaking, waterfall trekking, Canoeing etc.  Rishikesh has a vast natural area where activities like Camping, Hiking, Bungee Jumping, Asia's longest 1 km long Flying Fox, Gaint Swing, Cliff Jumping, Trekking, Rock climbing and Backpacking are also very popular.

Such is the power of traveling. The visions you see: a stretch of yellow mustard flowers from a distance, massive hills with details in front of you - the sound of river flowing visiting your ears, or feeling the chilly weather around a misty atmosphere; these are the joys you have while traveling.

Dedicated team 

 Pink Vibgyor is a team, a help and assistance to travelling. Pink Vibgyor is a service dedicated exclusively to gay and lesbian travelers. Our team has awesome gay (or friendly) members who work hard to keep up to our fabulous guests.

We can bend..... your itinerary

 Okay so this is one important reason why you should travel with us, we offer maximum flexibility in the itinerary. We realize that our clients are super moody and might want to take control over the tour and decide where he wants to go and we totally respect that and are thus adjustable.

Insight experience
Gay scene in India is too closeted in most of the cities and good parties and spas are hard to find but we know where to take you, be it a Thursday, Saturday or a Tuesday night. We also introduce you to the local guys of the cities you travel to for some more fun facts and places.

The right ingredient

A normal tour is made a gay tour by adding just the right components of gay friendly operators, hotels, restaurants (ofcourse with the best ratings!) , friendly guides , drivers etc. but overdoing it can make it cheesy. More than the right amount of gayness makes it too gay, which we don't... animate.
