Recommendation for Foreigners/ Tourist during Dashain in Nepal
If you are here in
Nepal during late September or in early October then you must observe the
Dashain festival. You may see the crowds in every market and must be surprised
about what is going on...? Actually Dashain is one of the biggest festival of
Nepalese people which is celebrated across the nation. I have some
recommendation for you about what you can do during this festive season?
Visiting the local market to view
the Dashain Shopping
can go to the local market where you can see the big crowd of the people who
are busy in shopping for the festival. During Dashain people buy new clothes
for the family members. You can specially visit Asan bazaar. It is one of the
oldest as well as busiest shopping market where you can find everything.
is one of the interesting things that can be done during your visit in Nepal
during Dashain festival. You enjoy the kite festivals as some of the local youth
clubs or hotels arrange an annual Changa chait program. Or you can either fly
the kites from roof top of your hotel too. During Dashain festival we can see
different age group of people flying colourful of kites in the sky.
Visiting different Temples
Dashain festival you can see a large number of people in different Temples
especially in the temple of Goddess Durga standing in a long line for
worshipping. The 10days of Dashain is celebrated by visiting different temples
of Goddess Durga. You can see the activities of people in the temples like how
they perform the puja, you can also see people sacrificing the livestock etc.
most important thing that should not be missed during your visit in Nepal
during Dashain festival is enjoying the Swing. Swings are made up of bamboo and coconut rope across the
nation during Dashain festival. It is said they we should atleast
leave the ground once.
It is enjoyed by people of all age groups. The swing is called ‘ping’ in
Nepali. You can also enjoy the swing as it is constructed in most of the places.
Some of the swing’s height exceeds twenty feet and you can swing really high.
You can also make a visit to khasi
bazaar where you can see the large numbers of goats and the crowd of the people
who came for buying the goats. A large number of goats are consumed during
dashain festival. Some people buy for the purpose of sacrificing while some buy
for just the purpose of meat and fun only.
Langur Burja is a kind of gamble which
is played during Dashain by the people of all age group. It is played in many
inner streets of Nepal. You can also engage in this game. You don’t have to
worry about how to play the game as the people around there will definitely
teach you how to play and what are the rules and regulations of the game too.
The most important thing during Dashain
is the Tika occasion. You can see people putting red Tika on their forehead along
with Jamara. Jamara is the made up of grains like maize & Barley. Some
people may also put the white Tika too. The Tika is received by the hand of
elder member of the house with lots of blessings. You can observe the Tika
occasion in the house of a local people.
