Autumn or the festival season in Nepal is the best time to visit Nepal for both nature and culture exploration. The weather is neither hot nor cold. People prefer to trek in the Himalayas during autumn and tour around Nepal.


Tihar is regarded as the second greatest festival in Nepal. It is celebrated for 5 days. It is also known as the festival of light and color. People color their surroundings, hang colorful lights and enjoy the festival with the Tika ceremony from their sisters. Tihar is better known as the festival of brothers and sisters, to strengthen their bond. Crow, dog, ox and cows are worshipped for the 4 days. The 4th day is also very special to worship the goddess Laxmi, the goddess of wealth. The 5th day is Bhaitika, when sisters put colorful tikas on their forehead. The blessings are given for the long and healthy life. Delicious varieties are cooked.
