Visiting the Srinagar tulip garden or the Kashmir Tulip Festival was always on our bucket list.
Somehow, we were not able to plan the trip to coincide with the blooming time. Last year, we decided to go. A holiday for the office on a Friday helped. We took another day off and went to see the lovely garden.
Our flight from Bangalore touched Srinagar airport around the afternoon. As the flight took off from Delhi, the excitement mounted. The last thirty minutes of the flight before landing in Srinagar are a pleasure. Provided the weather holds good and is 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
Mushtaq was there to take care of us at the airport. We were with him when he drove us around when we went in August 2014 for the Markha Valley trek in Ladakh. An amiable gentleman took us straight to our regular adda in front of the tourism centre for a cup of Kashmiri Chai. After sipping the chai with buttered buns we went straight to the hotel, freshened up and left for seeing Srinagar tulip garden.
We were all excited to see the garden. But Mushtaq had another plan. He said he would show us some spectacular scenes of the garden before we reached it. We started driving towards Taj Vivanta which is on a small hillock. As we started climbing and came halfway, Mushtaq stopped the Scorpio and asked us to get down. He then asked us to look down the hill towards Dal Lake.
What we saw was stunning indeed! Srinagar Tulip Garden is a sight to behold. Check it out here!

“Saab, this is the Srinagar tulip garden you are going to see,” said Mushtaq.
We could not believe our eyes. We asked them to take us fast to the garden. We couldn’t wait anymore. Mushtaq brought us down and took us behind Chashm-e-shahi garden. There was a small crowd. The weather was cloudy and we did not want it to rain. It was chilly and good that we both were wearing a pullover.
We took tickets costing Rs 50 per head and entered. We don’t want to write about what we saw. It is not possible to describe the beautiful landscape. It was sheer bliss.
