Dashain on Swing

Dashain Festival

Dashain is one of the biggest festival in Nepal and it is celebrated pompously.

Erecting a swing (made of bamboo branches and ropes) as part of enjoying Dashain has been very symbolic, though this tradition is gradually in decline and are now seen only in the suburbs and rural areas of the country.

Nonetheless, people still enjoy the ride very much, regardless of the age.

NOTICE THE BOYS & GIRLS QUEUE UP SEPARATELY WAITING FOR THEIR TURNS.
