Lhosar Dinner Ball on February 23
February 27 , 2013
As a part of celebrating Lhosar –
the New Year festival of different indigenous communities in the country,
Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) is organizing ‘Lhosar Dinner
Ball-2013’ at Hotel Yak and Yeti, Durbarmarg on February 23.
The fun-filled event will
showcase culture and tradition of communities like Gurung, Sherpa and Tamang,
among others. Though these communities celebrate Lhosar on different dates,
TAAN has been observing the festival in a combined way by bringing together all
these communities for a single program.
Lhosar Dinner Ball is an annual
event in TAAN’s calendar. In the initial years, TAAN used to organize Lhosar
festival as a fund-raising campaign. The association plans to include the event
in the country’s annual tourism calendar in the near future so as to attract more
foreign tourists in the country.
