About Cherry Blossom Hunza Tour
Hunza is famous for its cherry and Apricot blossom season. In March, April, and May the valley is full of flowers, and the Panoramic view across the Hunza Valleys incorporates three snowcapped peaks over 7,000 meters (Rakaposhi 7788Mtrs and Ultar 7388Mtrs), providing a contrast to the natural environments of Hunza.
The view of Hunza from Karimabad in spring is incredible, though it remains spectacular at any time of the year. Upper Hunza Valley (Gojal) is one of the most beautiful places to enjoy blossom season, it incorporates more than 5 snow caped peaks over 7000 meters, and many peaks below 7000 meters. Blossom in Gojal starts in late March or early April. The best time to visit Hunza for cherry blossom visitors is the end of March or April when the color of the area changes to red, yellow, brown, white, and green.
This is a specially designed 7 Days trir to Hunza Valley in Apricot and Cherry Blossom when the valley blooms and the giant snow-capped mountains welcome the New Year. In the blossom tour to Hunza, you will be immersed in the spectacular views of the valley and the mountains. You will also experience the rich culture and food of Hunza.
Festival of Novroz
Novroz, a celebrated festival in Central Asia, holds a significant place in the hearts of Hunza Valley’s communities. This vibrant festivity, marking the New Year, unfolds on the 21st of March annually. Its correlation with blossom season is deeply rooted in the belief that blossoms symbolize blessings and new beginnings.
During Novroz, a profound ritual takes place as farmers sow seeds in the fertile fields, invoking prayers for abundant prosperity and a fruitful harvest in the upcoming year. The festival becomes a jubilant occasion, blending cultural heritage with nature’s bounty, where locals come together to commemorate the cycle of life and renewal amidst the blossoming landscape.
This convergence of the Novroz festival and the flourishing cherry blossoms adds an extra layer of charm and cultural significance to your visit to Hunza.
