Head to Srinagar for Tulip Garden Festival
Pristine natural beauty, lush green mountains and flower gardens blossom in our minds when one mentions Jammu and Kashmir to us. Indeed, it’s the Valley of Gods. If you haven’t been to the state yet, this is the perfect time to plan for a trip! And if you’ve been there before, its time to return to the Paradise on Earth.
The Tulip Garden Festival shall be held in the first two weeks of April at the Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, Srinagar. It is also known as Siraj Bagh. It is a vast garden spreading over more than 5 acres of land. The tulips are in full bloom during the period between end of March and early April – the festival is perfectly timed so that a visitor can carry back memories in myriad hues of tulips.
Be at this festival to witness a number of varieties of just tulips, some of which are from imported from abroad – countries like Holland, etc. The garden is a photographer’s delight – it appears like a silk carpet of radiant colours. During the evenings, you may take part in various cultural events and shows, taste the local cuisine, do some shopping for souvenirs and handicrafts, and more.
The garden is located on the fringes of the beautiful Dal lake, which is a famous tourist attraction of Kashmir. You may plan to stay in houseboats on the Daal, and explore the gardens during the day. And while you are there, you must visit Cheshmashahi Garden too, a beautiful garden that dates back to the Mughal times. Lots of movies have been shot in both these gardens.
The entry fee is very nominal compared to the once in a life time experience you shall have – and the Tulip Festival draws huge number of footfalls every year.
Srinagar is well connected by road, railways and air. Plus, lot of tourist infrastructure have been created. So all you have to do is just get in touch with us at The Other Home and leave your worries with us – we shall ensure that you have a trip that suits your budget and gives you much more than your expectations!
