Celebrate Holi with Trekking Planner
Spend your holiday with friends in the most colorful way by literally playing with color. This year the Trekking Planner team has put together this special package to celebrate Holi together with our guest. Holi the festival of colors is celebrated in many regions of the world in early springs and 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 are crowded as people start shopping in regard of the preparations for the festival. 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 and once people are done applying the colors, sweets are offered and savored on. Holi songs are played as well as at some places small plays are organized which epitomize the spirit of Holi.
In this package, we have put together sightseeing, trekking and Holi celebration. So after your arrival, we’ll go for 1 day full sightseeing of world heritage (Kathmandu Durbar square, Patan Durbar square, Pashupatinath, Swaymbhunath temple, Bodhanath). Next day, we’ll celebrate Holi in Kathmandu. The street of Thamel and Kathmandu Durbar square are the best places to celebrate Holi in Kathmandu. Our trip further continues to Pokhara. After a full day sightseeing in Pokhara, we’ll go for short trekking in small beautiful village Ghandruk. It offers a superb mix of lush vegetation due to geographical diversity, unbelievable landscapes, terrains, close and spectacular mountain view, especially during sunrise and sunset, and unchanged local people and stone built villages. And we’ll drive back to Kathmandu after this amazing short trek.
