Public Holidays in Nepal 2021: Start Planning Your Holidays

The year 2020 was annus horribilis due to the coronavirus pandemic that restricted our holiday celebrations, festival gatherings, tours, and vacations. Hopefully, 2021 brings a fresh bout of happiness to your life.

With at least ten long weekends, 2021 brings some good news for people who like to travel and celebrate a lot.

Though Nepal is a small Himalayan nation, it is rich in cultural diversities of around 125 ethnic, tribal, and social groups. The Nepali Government has acknowledged a number of holidays every month to accommodate all the major festivals, traditions, and cultures.
