The festival is celebrated with music, dance and throwing different colours to each other. Millions of people in Nepal and around the world celebrate this colour fest to promote, love friendship and equality.

You could see the celebration begin even before the big day. On the eve, large bonfires are lit in many corners of the street and people pray for their internal devil be destroyed along with the bonfire.

Holi will be your great opportunity to observe the unity seen in people. Religions, casts, social status doesn’t matter. Everyone is equal, at least for a day. Everyone is throwing colour at everyone. This is a festival of colours, emotions, happiness and equality.

On the celebration day, you could see the country is painted in mesmerising hues of blues, yellows, magentas, greens, violets, and more. Clouds of colours dancing in the wind carry the message of love and happiness across walls, neighbours, and hearts.

You will join the masses at Basantapur Durbar Square for one the biggest celebrations in Kathmandu. Get few packets of different colours, pour it over to your friends or to anyone else. Dance with the crowd. Cheers with them. Play with them. Take home the best memories from Nepal.

Holi provides you with the rare opportunity to capture those precious moments through your lens and treasure them forever.
