25 Best Spots To Catch Stunning Sunsets In India

At around 6:30 pm every day my father calls everyone out in the terrace to witness yet another stunning sunset sky. This activity is relatively marked in our daily calendar since the last 2 months now, and thanks to the lockdown, the entire family can simply step into the terrace to witness the newest painting that the sky has framed.

My Instagram feed is filled with stunning sunsets, which makes me believe that across the world, we’re all in awe of these pre-monsoon bursts of colours that fill the sky. Every city is lucky to have it’s own version, or an artist’s rendition if I may, of a dual or triple toned sunset, one that gives tough competition to a Pantone colour wheel. 

I’ve rounded the best spots to catch gorgeous sunsets across India for you. With states slowly opening up, and travelling now made hassle-free with an e-Pass, you should head to these stunning locations to catch some stunning twilights:
