Cherry blossom, the onset of winters.
With slight chilly wind and pink and white flowers.
Just like Japan, year after year, Meghalaya turns pink. The cherry blossom trees on each side of the road make a beautiful gateway. In between greens, there is suddenly a patch of pink which makes the view so much brighter!
We waited for Umiam Lake Point to come to be awestruck. The road till Shillong was filled with these flowers. Wards lake gets filled with people taking numerous pictures with the beautiful background. Golf Course becomes the sunbathing arena for the locals.
Since the last couple of years, Government noticed how this season can attract a different, nature-loving crowd and started the “Indian Cherry Blossom Festival” where the locals perform, sell, eat, drink and be merry. But, this lasts only for three weeks, just before the chill starts to set in!
