Come participate in this ropain festival cum event, play with some mud, get a bit wet, and mingle with the local’est of local traditions in the Kathmandu valley, planting rice.
Rice is one of the most important commodities in Nepal. Every summer, as the rains set in the valley, its time to celebrate the showers by making a celebration of the planting of rice (ropain). This year, we invite you to participate in this festival at Khokana, Bungamti, in the southern outskirts of the valley. Things cannot get more local than this. The memories of this day will stay on! Gauranteed.
Accompany this with a newari feast of sorts, and this makes for an excellent day out.
Children are most welcome (and will enjoy the mud part the most!)
