You don’t have to fly to Japan or USA to feast on Cherry Blossoms. Witness the grandeur of Cherry Blossoms in Autumn this November in Meghalaya’s Khasi Hills. From 8-11 November 2017 the Cherry Blossom Festival in Shillong will celebrate the flowering in this International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, with community events such as guided night walks, live music gigs, a beauty pageant, and stalls showcasing the cuisine, wine, arts and craft of the region.

Alongside, there will be a rock concert, traditional folk music, unplugged western music and dance performances from all over North East India, choir performances, bicycle rallies, storytelling sessions of local and world folktales, and a Japan Higher Education Fair .
