Gyalpo Loshar

Nepalese folk celebrated the Gyalpo Loshar yesterday (March 2nd, 2014). There was also a public holiday on this special occasion. This festival marks the commencement of the Tibetan New Year. Sherpa and Tamang ethnic groups along with some other communities observe this festival which mainly lasts for three days.
On the very first day, an alcoholic drink called Changkol is prepared by the family members of the celebrating group. The second day is the main day, i.e the New Year day. In the third day, people gather at a place and have foods and drinks together. They also sing their traditional songs and perform cultural dances. Houses are cleaned and decorated intensively and the merriment of this fiesta can be observed everywhere.      
So if you happen to be in Nepal during this day, do not forget to observe the celebration and do ask your Nepali friend to take to a store where you can buy Khaapse, a special dish prepared on this occasion. we Nepal one tours best travel agency of Nepal provides you a best service tours in Nepal,If you think to visit Nepal.
