Kathmandu, Nepal-Gai Jatra Festival For The Bereaved

I’m in Kathmandu, Nepal! Just a quick update over coffee at one of my favorite cafes. It’s been quite rainy here over the past week at the tail end of the monsoon season. No surprise that there are few tourists here but in just a few weeks that will change and a busy fall trekking season will be underway. I saw my first Gai Jatra Festival this week. This is a beautiful event that helps to relieve the grief of pain of those who have lost a loved one this past year. September 12 marks the start of Teej also known as the “ladies festival” where married women honor their husbands by praying that they have a long life and for a strong marriage. I look forward to bringing you highlights from Teej on the podcast and on 360Today on Facebook! Please feel free to send me a message about anything travel related including activities in Nepal. Thanks again to Cam from Australia for reaching out this past week. Email:john@fareasttravels.com
