Ladakh to host Apricot Blossom Festival in April

Spring is a wondrous time full of beauty and divinity, and what better place than the ever-surreal Ladakh to experience this season. According to a recent social media post by the Ladakh Ministry of Tourism, you will soon be able to visit the Apricot Blossom Festival in the Union Territory of Ladakh.

The festival is poised to be a visual treat for travelers as beautiful apricot blossoms will mesmerize you during this time. The festival is held from April 13 to April 22, 2022.

According to Ladakh Ministry of Tourism, the theme for this year’s Apricot Blossom Festival is Chuli Mentok 2022. Apricot is popularly known as
Chuli in Ladakh.

Although we are all very familiar with Japan’s magnificent cherry blossom festival, little did we know that Ladakh could offer a similar experience. Apricot was introduced back when Ladakh was a popular Silk Road destination.

The festival takes place in Leh and Kargil. In Leh, you can visit the festival in Domkhar Dho, Achinathang, Skuru and Tertsey. In Kargil, the festival takes place in Garkhone, Sanjak and Karkichu.

The festival will be a great introduction for visitors to understand the benefits of nature in Ladakh. The Apricot Blossom Festival is sure to brighten up your visit to Ladakh.ti
