I am getting married in December end and planning to go on honeymoon for the first 2 weeks of January. I come from south side of India, from a place where temperature on average is around 28 deg and I am about 1km from the beach.

My fiance and I discussed and we want to go to a place where there's a lot of greenary, mountains. But I also heard that most of the common locations such as Shimla, Kullu Manali are too cold in January. Is that so ?

If they are too cold, could someone please suggest alternatives ?

Mountains + January = Cold. Too cold? . . . that's up to you

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have decided Himachal to be my destination. Now comes the next step. The package.

I browsed around and found one from yatra.com for 10 days to be attractive. However, it isn't specifically a honeymoon package. There was another package for honeymoon but that was for 8 days. It had inclusions such as room decoration, candle light dinner, honeymoon cake, each for 1 day. When I asked the customer care if I could customize the 10 day package to have these inclusions, the cost was increased by Rs.8000. That's steep, isn't it ?

I was wondering about couple of things.
1. The 10 day package isn't for honeymoon package but is twin sharing. So does it mean that room will have 2 single beds or one double bed ?
2. Even though we have made bookings with package, can we make special request with the hotel we are staying (for additional fee, ofcourse) for stuff like room decoration, candle light dinner reservation ? which I m guessing will be relatively less expensive.

Hello, Shimla and Manali are really cold in January. But the cold can be prevented if you are dressed well for the weather. You can also consider places like Gangtok, Changu lake, Darjeeling, Manipur, Nagaland and Tripura for greenery.
