Nature has always been the best of healers and stress relievers. Every time we think we know everything about it, we are left with nothing but to realize how wrong we are. Nature never seizes to impress and inspire us. We are left awe-struck at every sight of the breathtaking view of the nature. A mere stroll in the park amongst greenery in the morning can highly impact our mood to continue with the rest of the day. One gets a lingering feeling of happiness and peace when they spend time surrounded by nature. However, the best part of nature is observing the beautiful and vibrant sunsets and sunrises. Exposure to natural light can reduce stress and anxiety levels significantly. To witness the sun sink and fade slowly behind the horizon helps us to unwind, relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. The mesmerizing spectrum of the red and orange hues blending in the background gives us a sense of calmness and the time to reflect on ourselves too.

If you are looking for the best sunsets and sunrise spots in India, then here is a list of places below for you to explore:

    Renowned to be the best beach in Asia along with the Vijayanagar beach, the RadhanagarBeach is situated at the western end of the famous Havelock Island in Andaman. Find yourself soaking in the immaculate and pristine beauty of the beaches, coupled with the daunting presence of coral reefs skirting off the edges of the sparkling white sand. The greenish blue tinge of the oceanic water at this place serves to allay the senses.The skyline seems intent upon consummating its union with the ocean.
    Regarded as one of the best to follow the trail of the setting sun, the White Rann of Kutch is a salt marsh which remains flooded during the monsoons. An endless expanse of white flakes of sand as far as the eye is capable of taking in, the entire landscape is bathed in a deep-crimson hue at dusk.Visitors to this place vouch for the indelible impact this not-so-mundane phenomena left on their memories and psyche.
    In the God’s own country, Kerala, there are experiences galore. One such thrilling experience is witnessing the sunset at Allepey beach. As dusk approaches, the dark blue waters assume a multitude of colours, depending upon the saturation of clouds in the sky. What makes the soul-satiating sunset at this place more enriching are the remains of a decrepit bridge having trailed off into the waters of the Arabian Sea. Tearing your eyes off the entire scenery bathed in varying shades of gold may become difficult for you at times, mark my words.
    The sweet and inviting fragrance from the multiple fruit orchards nestled in the embrace of the valley hangs thick in the air, here at the northernmost part of Kashmir. Gar firdausbaroo-e-zaminast, aminastoaminastohaminast! Ingratiatingly soothing snow-capped peaks which are covered with delightful wild roses in summer and with equally mesmerizing lavenders once the rains have subsided. Get hold of a mug of local butter tea before you head towards one of those peaks for your adventure. And if you do not shy away from knocking down some alcohol, a glass of local change would do.
    If you haven’t already guessed why this place is on top of this list, then you, my dear friend, are not a bona fide traveler. Located at the extreme tip of peninsular India, the colossal statues of Swami Vivekananda and the Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar grace this place and give it a cosmopolitan hue.The fact that the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea commingle at this place provides a distinct aura. With a seemingly endless expanse of azure-blue water spread out in front of you, which takes on the color of attar of roses at dusk, you will surely be mesmerized by the striking beauty of the phenomena.
    Tiger Hills, a prominent mountain range, is renowned for its captivating sunsets and sunrises. As the sun begins to set, the hills provide a magnificent vantage point to witness a stunning display of colors. The sky transforms into a breathtaking palette of warm hues, with shades of orange, red, and yellow blending together. The mountains, silhouetted against the vibrant backdrop, create a striking contrast, highlighting their rugged features. The atmosphere becomes tranquil, and the fading light casts a serene ambiance over the surroundings. Similarly, at dawn, the sunrise at Tiger Hills is a remarkable sight to behold. As the first rays of sunlight peek over the horizon, the mountains are bathed in a soft golden glow. Shadows recede, revealing the lush valleys and meandering rivers below. The landscape awakens gradually, accompanied by the cheerful melodies of birds and the rustling of foliage. The colors of the sky transform from gentle pastels to a brighter, blue hue as the sun ascends higher. The combination of the panoramic views and the natural beauty of Tiger Hills makes it an ideal location to witness both sunsets and sunrises. Visitors can embrace the tranquility of the moment and immerse themselves in the captivating play of light and colors that grace the horizon.
    Umiam Lake, a mesmerizing man-made reservoir, is located at a distance of 15 kilometres north of Shillong which is the capital of the north-eastern Indian state of Meghalaya. The lake was formed after a dam was constructed to generate hydroelectric power. The scenic Umiam Lake is encircled by lush green East Khasi hills that form one of the best panoramic sights for nature-lovers in the country. The sunrise at the lake is a treat to watch and shouldn't be missed. The Umiam Lake has a park adjoining it which is a hotspot for picnics and frequented by locals for a getaway from their busy schedule.
    Kovalam, a serene coastal town located in the southern state of Kerala, India, offers breathtaking views of sunsets and sunrises over the Arabian Sea. As the sun begins its descent, the sky above Kovalam transforms into a vivid tapestry of colors. Vibrant shades of orange, pink, and purple blend together, reflecting off the tranquil waters and casting a warm glow across the horizon. The palm-fringed beaches provide a picturesque setting, as visitors gather to witness the mesmerizing spectacle. The rhythmic sound of crashing waves accompanies the fading light, creating a serene ambiance that embraces the senses. Equally captivating are the sunrises in Kovalam. As dawn breaks, the first light of day gently illuminates the sky, casting a soft glow over the vast expanse of the sea. The tranquil waters mirror the changing colors of the sky, creating a surreal reflection. The cool morning breeze carries a sense of rejuvenation, as the town slowly awakens to the new day. The sight of fishing boats dotting the horizon adds a touch of authenticity to the scene, encapsulating the coastal charm of Kovalam.
    Both sunrise and sunset are phenomenon to be reckoned with, besides other things in the temple town. You can sit for hours at the ghats gazing at the sun going down below the waters of the holy Ganges. Suppose you’re lucky enough and the sand at the other side of the ghats has thickened enough (which is how things are for a major part of the year). In that case, you can hitch a boat ride to the opposite side and allow yourself to be bewitched by the sheer plausibility of the phenomenon. Head towards Assi or Dashashwamedh ghat in the evening if you enjoy the company of people while taking in the bewitching phenomena.
    I can clearly envision the euphoria the prospect of visiting Mount Abu induces in the minds of prospective travelers. And to witness the sunset from one of the peaks of Aravalli range is an altogether different experience, bordering on the other side of the mundane. Located at the south end of Nakki lake, you need only visit this place once to fall in love with it. If you haven’t managed to fall in love with this exquisite creation already.

As the light fades gradually, you can almost hear darkness lapping gently against the visibly serrated edges of the day. With nothing else but a deeply comforting silence to keep you company, you can spend hours gazing at the near-perfect endings to the day if you love to spend your time doing just that.
