Readers pics: Spellbinding aerial views of India
We invited readers to send in their favourite travel pic -- that one photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place they visited. And we have been inundated with stunning pics of every corner of India.
First, BS Sanjeev's picture of the famous Tawang Monastery shot on a bright December morning. He writes, "This Buddhist monastery is the largest in India and the second largest in the world. It is located at a height of 10,000 ft and provides a breathtaking view of the nature around it. The 12-hour-drive from Tezpur via Sela Pass and a visit to the China border are the experience of a lifetime."
