Nepal Observes Ropain Rice Festival 2019

The monsoon season in Nepal marks the beginning of many festivals reminiscent of Nepal’s rich culture.

One such festival is Ropain- the rice planting festival, which is celebrated on Ashar Pandhra (fifteenth day of Ashar). On this day, crop planting season officially begins in Nepal.

Rice is planted between the last week of June to the first week of July and is then harvested in mid-November.

Nepali farmers go to their fields to begin paddy plantation on this day. They joyfully indulge in the plantation, which they accompany with singing, dancing and mud splashing.
