Holi or Fagu Purnima (March)

Fagu Purnima is one of the most colorful and playful festivals of Nepal. The chit pole, decorated with colorful flags and erected on the first day of Fagu at Kathmandu's Durbar Square, is a formal announcement to all; hide your good clothes, for througout the week you may be splashed with coloured powder and water balloons. The last day is the wildest, youths covered with red vermillion powder roam the streets as inviting targets.
