Udhauli Nepal

12 December, 2019

NEPAL. Udhauli means ?descent?, which explains its connection to the down-slope movement of wildlife. The date of Udhauli Parva is set on the full moon of the month of Mangsir on Nepal?s calendar. It generally lands in December on the Gregorian Calendar.
During the festival, there is a worshiping of ?Mother Earth? called ?Bhumi Puja?, where the people thank the land for the most recent harvest.

Another key feature of the celebrations is the Sakela dance, wherein everyone dons special, traditional attire and dances round in a big circle to music played on instruments like the madal and the dhol.
