Nepal is not only a land of mountains. It is also known for its colorful vibrant festivities. In Nepal, there are more than 50 annual festivals that are celebrated by people of the Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Christian faiths. Despite the diverse ethnic background and practices, Nepali citizens of every faith unite for these major celebrations. Learn about these rich traditions with CultureALL Ambassador Shweta Agrahari.
