Welcome to Hunza Explorers, your go-to tour operator for a fixed departure tour of the Hunza Cherry Blossom season. We offer the best and most reasonably priced tours with top-notch service and the most experienced local tour guides. Our team has been working in the tourism industry across Pakistan for two decades now, and we’re excited to share our passion for this stunning region with you.

The Cherry Blossom season, also known as Sakura, marks the end of the chilly winter weather in Hunza, Nagar, and other valleys of Gilgit-Baltistan. This beautiful season starts in the second week of March and ends by the end of April, depending on the altitude. Many tourists from around the world visit Hunza valley in the Cherry Blossom/Spring season to witness the valley’s transformation into a picturesque scenery of white, pink, and green.

Cherry blossom viewing began in ancient times when aristocrats wrote poetry and sang songs under the flowering trees of Cherry. Japanese, Thai, Singaporean, and Malaysian cultures are particularly fond of cherry blossoms because the shape and color of the petals reflect people’s ideal notions of purity and simplicity. They are also touched by the blossoms’ fragility and short-lived beauty, which scatters just a few days after the flower.

At Hunza Explorers Treks and Tours, we invite you to spend your spring holidays in Hunza valley with us. Let our team of experienced guides show you the best of this incredible region during the Cherry Blossom season.
