Spectacular Srinagar from the sky!

Written by Poorna & Brinda

We are writing this from Srinagar. We don’t have to tell that this city is beautiful having been there twice in the last two years. We love the city, its beautiful vistas, the people and cuisine.  We came here to see the lovely and colorful Tulip garden in full bloom.

Whenever we travel to Himalayas, we make sure that we get a window seat. When we got our boarding pass this time, the guy at the desk didn’t give us window seat. We were disappointed but were keeping our fingers crossed when we boarded the flight. As luck would have it no one turned up and we are able to get a window seat.

Twenty minutes into the landing, we spotted the first mountains. After that, it was a spectacular landscape of mountains and valleys which greet us till we landed. Let us share you what we saw from the sky. Please click on the pictures to see them in larger size.

We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon city” or “Garden city” of India.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.

  • […] Our flight from Bangalore touched Srinagar airport around afternoon. As the flight took off from Delhi, the excitement mounted. The last thirty minutes of flight before landing Srinagar is a pleasure. Provided the weather holds good and not cloudy. We were lucky this time. The weather was clear. The mountains became visible half an hour before the scheduled arrival. We could see some mighty snow covered peaks. Some of them were covered partially in cloud. The view of the mountains from the sky was spectacular as we came closer to Srinagar. We did post a story on it on this blog Srinagar from the sky […]
