Best places to watch the sun rise and set in India

Watching the sun rise and set from a beautiful vantage point is highly emotive and a perfect sun rise or set can be the single most memorable thing about a destination. Whether its sun rise or sunset along the coasts or behind lush mountains, it’s all possible in India. With an impressive west facing coastline and hill stations perched in the mountains, India has a large array of wonderful exotic backdrops for the most beautiful daily phenomena in the world. We take you to seven top destinations to experience the best sun rise and set in India.

Fort Cochin– The famous Chinese fishing nets in the central square of Fort Kochi often define the landscape of this quaint town. There is nothing like a beautiful sunset with the silhouettes of fishermen working on these nets to get the catch home and have a lucrative evening. The fishermen also let the tourists give a helping hand to enjoy the experience.


Goa – As the sun sets down on Goa, you know it’s time to hit the watering hole. Watch the last of the football matches and people taking runs on the Goan beaches and then lie on the comfortable beach loungers and watch the sky turn orange as the sun sets.


Rann of Kutch – The Rann of Kutch is celebrated for its vast dry lands full of nothingness. A traveler’s dream, it looks even more fantastic as the sun rise on the arid landscape. Still not explored by many, take a trip to Kutch and enjoy the culture and simple living in the desert region of the country.


Sunset in Wayanad – The warm glow of the sun is a pleasant respite in the hilly and lush green terrains of Wayanad in North Kerala. It’s great to see the sun rise in the forests of the region, while the receding light makes for great photo-opportunities.


Varkala Cliff – Varkala is a great destination for beach lovers. Tucked away off the main highway between Trivandrum and Kollam, the beach of Varkala is overlooked by a massive cliff. Little shops and cafes join the cliff side from where you can enjoy a clear sunrise.


Homestays are a perfect option to admire the sunrise and sunset. If you wish to plan a travel and have an experience of a lifetime, kindly contact us reservation team, who would be happy to help you plan your travel.
