It is said about Nepal that every other structure is a holy shrine and every other day a festival. Well, if the number of annual festivals, both religious and national, is any indication, the saying couldn’t  be more true .Festivals are an essential part  of Nepalese life that garner tremendous local participation. Festivals also offer visitors a valuable opportunity not only for having fun but gaining insight into various  aspects of Nepalese culture.

The religious festivals follow the lunar calendar, while national festivals have   fixed dates.  Wherever of whenever you arrive in Nepal, you can be pretty sure of being at the right time for one or more special events.  Some of the major and interesting festivals are presented below.
