Navavarsha & Bisket Jatra

We'll be arriving in Kathmandu on 9 April. Can anyone tell me please if anything special will be happening for the Nepalese New Year and Bisket Jatra ?

Happened to be in Bhaktapur for Bisket Jatra this year. Absolutely incredible ! Chariots, pole erecting & climbing, huge crowds. Ideally best if you are staying there overnight - the chariot was parked opposite our hotel.

Hello,

If you are in Kathmandu around that festival then it's good idea to attend that. I attended only once and that was awesome. Lots of people, new experiences for you. Enjoy !
