December is the coldest season here in Nepal. Though temperature is low during
morning and night time its warm during day time. Sky is also clear during day
times. There may be snow fall in the higher altitude but not in the terai
regions and in popular tourist destinations like Pokhara, Kathmandu and

Some of the swing’s height exceeds twenty feet and you can swing really high.
You can also make a visit to khasi

who came for buying the goats. A large number of goats are consumed during

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
