Most Memorable Sunrises, Sunsets and Night Skies of India

Out of all the incredible gifts the nature has showered on us, the spectacular combo of daily sunrise and sunset is perhaps the most remarkable one. They are celestial, an artist’ inspiration, a poet’s muse and a traveler’s companion. India is blessed with immense natural beauty, it quenches a traveler’s heart with its cascading waterfalls, its fabled jungles are home to diverse wildlife, rare birds and endangered species, and the sirens rising from the mighty Himalayas in the northern frontier have made adventurers into devout spirituals and inspired the globetrotters to come, explore and be one with it.

Along the incredible culture and varied destinations, India is home to some of the best sunrises and sunsets in the world. This daily cosmic phenomenon at such places are simply breathtaking and a riot of scintillating colors that one can only helplessly gawk at and be enthralled! Let’s take you to such places in India with an unforgettable sunrises, sunsets and night skies which you cannot forget.

Sunrise in Tiger Hills, Darjeeling – imagine the sky in front of you turning to pink then brighter shades of orange and some layers of crimson and a big gentle sun germinates out from the massifs like a yolk. That’s the magical moment when the first golden rays of sun kiss the mighty Kanchendzonga which starts changing its color from being ice blue to white to pink and then hot gold! All these go on while you are on Tiger Hills at an elevation of 2600 m and realize the beauty of mundane things like sunrise is not that ordinary after all.

Sunset in Havelock Island of Andaman – as the saying goes, every sunset is different as it spreads a dash of warm colors on the horizon differently. One can head towards the pristine Radhanagar beach post lunch to frolic at the beach or engage in water activities like Frisbee throwing, swimming in the crystal clear water, sea diving and body boarding. One can simply lie on mat or swing on a hammock to enjoy the sedative beauty of this immaculate beach while you suddenly see the sky rushing to pink, orange, red, crimson, purple and molten gold, you realize the primeval ache of experiencing something beautiful that’s inexplicable – the sun sets in the Bay of Bengal and you are still speechless by the color carnage you saw in one of the archipelagos of Andaman.

But do you know this humble terrain is one of the best destinations to stargaze. With a clutter of glimmering stars in the sky and a mesmerizing lake beneath reflecting the glow of an unforgettable starry night in a traveler’s life.
