Cherry blossom (Sakura) signals the end of chilly winter weather in Hunza, Nagar and in the other valleys of Gilgit-Baltistan. Cherry Blossom season starts from the second week of March and ends by the end of April (depends on altitude). Many tourists around the world are coming to explore Hunza valley in Cherry blossom/Spring season to see the all valley in 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, Vietnamese and Malaysian like cherry blossom the most because the shape and color of the petals reflect people’s ideal notion of purity and simplicity. They are also touched by the blossoms that they are so fragile short-lived scattering just a few days after the flower.
