When you have cherry blossom blooming in Shillong why travel to Japan. North East is a place to see. Beautiful mountains, lush green forests, national parks, great food, warm & friendly people.

Beautiful, isn’t it?
The India International Cherry Blossom Festival held annually in Shillong may have been cancelled this year in the wake of COVID-19. But not cancelled are the wispy pink-and-white blooms that adorn the north-eastern town’s trees around this time of the year.
