Manipuri cuisine has its own distinctive flavor because of the natural and indigenous ingredients used in preparing them. The ‘Cherry Blossom Festival’ at Senapati District is another special attraction of the festival and with Dzuko valley in the same district, the festival attracts a huge number of visitors during the festival.

The festival is an opportunity for artisans and weavers to showcase their creativity and talent through the indigenous forms of handicrafts and handlooms. One can also have insights into the living style of various tribes through the themed huts displayed at the heritage park.

Locals exhibit their skills in the native sports which include the famous martial art of Manipur – Thang Ta (a combination of Spear & Sword skills) along with other sports.

Apart from these sports, one may also enjoy and indulge in adventure sports like trekking, white water rafting, and parasailing at various locations.
