Most Beautiful Airports in India: Window Seat Essentials

All great journeys start right from where we board our means of travel. Air travel beats the rest here. The world-class airports that we have today not only create the much-required incitation for our trips but their unparalleled ambience creates a charm for domestic as well as international travellers.

We travel to distant lands.
We feel the air which smells different from ours.
We embrace varied cultures and gather memories worth reminiscing for life.

Glistening floors, attractive bookstores, lounges, clothing showrooms and a lot of restaurants are some of the numerous glamorous elements they have. However, some of the airports aren’t as plushy as the others. They still manage to woo us with their locations and spellbinding view.

Here’s a list of  8 most beautiful airports in India that are sometimes even more beautiful than the destination themselves. 

1. Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport, Ladakh

This airport located in Ladakh, the only unique hill desert of India is one of the highest airports in the world with an altitude of about 3,256 m from the mean sea level. All flights take off only in the morning to avoid the afternoon mountain winds. Passengers are not allowed to carry any hand baggage with them (with the exception of the camera and laptop bags).

A spectacular view of many complementing shades is owed to the snow-clad barren mountains.
