Tour Details

Biska Jatra is an annual event in Bhaktapur and Thimi in Nepal. The festival is celebrated at the start of the new year on the Bikram Sambatcalendar, however, the festival itself is not related to Bikram Sambat. Legend has it that this celebration is the “festival after the death of the serpent”. Numerous areas of Bhaktapur City celebrate this festival according to their own ritual. The most eventful places in the course of the festival are Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Thimi Balkumari. A huge chariot carrying a statue of the God Bhairava is pulled by hundreds of people to the Khalla Tole. Approximately a month earlier, the chariot is assembled near the Nyatapole temple (five-stair temple). The most spectacular event on Bhaktapur Taumadhi is a huge tug-of-war between the Thane (upper) and Kone (lower) parts of town. Each team tries to pull to their side but later the chariot heads toward Khalla Tole. A huge approximately 25 meters Yoh si Dyo is erected in the Yosi khyo on the evening of New Year, the Yoh si is pulled down as the New Year officially commences.

Another part of Bhaktapur called Balkumari Thimi has a very spectacular colors festival (Sindur Jatra). Folks from various parts of Madhyapur Thimi gather, carrying their own chariots in Layeku Thimi. People celebrate and share greeting throwing Simrik (red/orange) color powder, playing Dhimay music. A place called Bode witnesses a tongue-piercing ceremony. One of the residents spends the whole day with an iron spike pierced in his tongue and roams different parts of the city carrying multiple fire torches on his shoulders. Juju Bhai Shrestha is the most renowned and frequent tongue piercer in the town.
