Celebrate Holi with Trekking Planner

Spend your holiday with friends in the most colorful way by literally playing with color. Moreover, this year the Trekking Planner team has put together Celebrate Holi with Trekking Planner package to celebrate Holi together with our guest. Holi the festival of colors is celebrated in many regions of the world in early springs. Specifically, it symbolizes the victory of good over evil. This colorful festival is unique in its own way due to the fact that whole country participates in it in the same spirit. All the folks put on festive look and the markets left crowded as people start shopping in regard of the preparations for the festival. Furthermore, the shops present various types of colors, as well as modernly designed pichkaris in order to tempt the kids, who love to soak their friends with the colored water.

On the day of Holi, everyone wants to be the first one to color their loved ones. Once people are done applying the colors, sweets are offered and savored on. Likewise, Holi songs are played as well as at some places small plays are organized which epitomize the spirit of Holi.
