Heaven on earth just got more mystical and it’s high time that you must consider a trip to the Himalayan land! March-April is the time when Asia’s Largest Tulip Show Goes Live in Kashmir’s Tulip Garden. The exotic flowers, in their full bloom, exude unparalleled charm and you have to see this, for you wouldn’t have experienced anything like this ever before. The pristine view of Tulip Garden spread over 30 hectares, looks like a sea of colors aligned in a seamlessly flowing stream.
On 25 March 2018 (Sunday), the Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden in Srinagar was declared open for public viewing and given the popularity of the garden, it’s going to remain jam-packed for the remaining of the days. If there’s anything more that could make the prospect of visiting the Tulip Garden more fascinating, it’s the picture-postcard location of the garden. The garden lies on the banks of the Dal Lake and the lower slopes of the Zabarwan Hills make a breathtaking backdrop, which looks just perfect for the photography session.
