Nepal is a country of various ethnic groups and cultures. We have varieties of Festivals for every religion and ethnic group. It is believed in Nepal that every other structure is a holy shrine every other day of the Festival. The Festival also offers visitors precious opportunities to have fun and gain insight into various aspects of Nepalese culture.

Whenever and wherever you arrive in Nepal, be pretty sure that you will be attending one of the festivals of any religion, we have listed the months and names of the festivals that are celebrated by different ethnic groups and different religions such as Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, etc. The religious festivals follow the lunar calendar.
