Best place for plane spotting- Jumbo point Delhi

Delhi is full of surprises and one of them waits for you here in Dwarka.  Jumbo point is a slang given to a landmark where you can see an aeroplane taking off or landing from a really close view.  As the old jumbo point near the NH-8 lost its value and charm due to protective measures by Police, now Delhi has got a new one. People and their experience suggest this one is better than the older one too.

Where train meets plane spotting

One thing that makes this spot different from others is the combination of trains and planes. As you reach the point the first thing you see is a railway crossing on one end and that gives you a wide view of the railway track. The noise of a Train approaching can be heard every 5-8mins, that gives you time to prepare for a nice click. 😉
