1. Check the predictions for ‘peak bloom dates’. The entire blooming period can last up to 14 days, which includes the days leading up to peak bloom, which means around 70% of the trees are blooming. The irony is that the dates are reliably predictable around 10 days before the peak. And rains don’t help either. But I realized that peak is a relative term, if you are there within 3 days before it starts or around 3-5 days after it ends, you still get to experience the beauty.
