Blooming almond trees paint a surreal picture in Kashmir Valley

Come spring and Kashmir's beauty increases manifold. The little pink and white flowers of the almond trees dot the Valley. Famous for their taste and sweetness, the almond bloom in the Valley is a visual treat in itself for tourists and locals alike. After months of bone-chilling cold, when locals are hurdled under blankets inside their houses, the arrival of spring gives them a reason to celebrate life. Almond trees are among the first to bloom in the Valley lending an aromatic air to the environment. The almonds from these gardens known locally as Badam Wari are known for their superior taste and high quality. Tourists visiting the valley said that they were delighted to witness the almond flowers.
