Ghode Jatra

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we don’t have time to get bored. Today we want to take you to Nepal to tell you about one of the country´s most famous festivals: Ghode Jatra.

A festival is always a significant event for Nepali people. Each festival has a different purpose, such as having a good harvest or honour the family. Nepal is known for having more festivals than days.

Ghode Jatra, meaning Horse Parade, is one of the main festivals in Kathmandu. It takes place every year between March and April. It is a celebration related to Nepali New Year.

On this day horse race, athletics and acrobatics are performed. A large number of people, even from outside Kathmandu, visit the capital to witness all the excited activities performed by the Army.

The most important event on Ghode Jatra is the big horse parade that takes place at Tundikhel.
