Nepal | Festivals in October

October is one of Nepal's busiest months for festivals. Communities from all over the country gather to celebrate a multitude of spiritual events including one of the largest Tihar, where people pay tribute to Hindu gods with celebratory days dedicated to the dog, the crow, the cow (in more rural areas), light and the unique bonds of family. 

Our ethos is about the sharing of and the preservation of Nepalese culture and festivals have a large part to play in the day-to-day lives of Nepalese people. When traveling through Nepal it's difficult to put your camera down, even on the most regular of days, during October it's even more difficult... Here are some of our captured moments, taken throughout the month.
