Holidays to Nepal 'are a dream for new year party-goers'

Travellers are too late to join in with the Kathmandu festivities which mark the beginning of 2010 for the Tamu or Gurung community. Thought to originate from Mongolia, the group mark the start of their new calendar today (December 30th 2009).

However, Thaindian.com noted that revellers still have plenty of other opportunities to join in with the celebrations in Nepal, saying: "For new year party-goers, Nepal remains a dream destination where ethnic new years pop up practically throughout the year."

It pointed out that on January 16th 2010, the Tamang community will welcome the start of ethnic year 2086 with a public holiday.

Furthermore, in mid-February the Tibetan people usher in their new year, while the new Nepali calendar begins on April 14th 2010.
