SPRING SPLENDORS

Spring is an unbelievable time to indulge in the tranquil moments of nature, the sudden explosion of colors and ephemeral spring blossoms and at Beyond X Boundaries, we know just the right spots to avoid the crowds while allowing you to bask in the delightful hues of pink and white. There are no fixed itineraries when Spring Blossoms comes to mind, hence, let us tailor make an exceptional journey for you. 

AOMORI PREFECTURE, JAPAN

Why Aomori Prefecture?

Often an overlooked prefecture in the northern-most prefecture/region of mainland Honshu but this is home to probably Japan's most incredible cherry blossoms. Hirosaki Castle represents one of the most photographed sites but the magic lies in the Tsugaru and Shimokita Peninsula where you will find some of the most unknown but jaw-dropping sakura sites in Japan.

Best Time To Go

End April to early May is the best time and is more consistent than anywhere else in Japan for "full hanami". However, this period also coincides with Japan's Golden Week and hence, do plan the journey way in advance if you do not want to miss out some exceptional accommodations/lodges in Aomori Prefecture. This is a region in Japan you just can't miss!

VALLE DEL JERTE, SPAIN

Why Valle del Jerte, Spain?

The Valle del Jerte or Jerte Valley is located in the province of Extremadura, one of Spain's least-visited region. Yet, this region is probably the most beautiful with stunning landscapes and farmlands, magical cherry blossoms in Spring and spectacular foliage in Autumn. Combine that with exciting rural cuisine and under-radar wine regions, this is Spain without the commercial tourism.

HUNZA VALLEY, PAKISTAN

Why Hunza Valley, Pakistan?

Seriously, the apricot blossoms in the Hunza Valley is not the only reason to pack your bags for Pakistan, a seemingly-distant frontier for most. Yet, this is one of the most spellbinding destinations in the world for avid trekkers with indomitable peaks - the gateway to the mighty K2 - second highest peak after Mount Everest.

VAN, TURKEY

Why Van, Turkey?

Cherry blossoms in Turkey? Yes, we're not joking. In the south-eastern frontiers of Turkey lies Lake Van, the largest lake in Turkey, blessed with its proximity to Mount Ararat, not far away from the border with Armenia as well as close to the ancient cities of Mardin, the endangered Hasankeyf and ancient civilizations of the Commagene Kingdom. This is a Spring journey with quite a punch!
