Nepal New Year Festival Bisket Jatra

Just 18 kilometers east of Kathmandu is the ancient city of Bhaktapur, whose name translates to “Place of Devotees”. A very fitting name when the annual Nepali New Year festival and celebrations take over the city. The Nepali calendar follows the cycles of the Moon and so varies year by year from the Roman calendar. The end of the Nepali month of Chaitra and beginning of the month of Baisakh marks the end of one year and beginning of another – the Nepali New Year. But while the Nepali...

Swinburne University of Technology, Annapurna Poon Hill Trek, Nepal

The Poon Hill trek in the Annapurna Sanctuary of western Nepal is one of the most famous treks in Nepal and the entire Himalaya mountains.
