The country, known for its rich cultural heritage, diverse landscapes, and warm-hearted people, is all set to welcome the new year with open arms and a lot of enthusiasm. Nepal follows the Bikram Sambat calendar, which is 56 years and 3 months ahead of the English calendar. Therefore, the Nepali New Year, known as Nepali Bikram Sambat 2081, falls on the second week of April of the English calendar.

The Nepali New Year is a time for family gatherings, feasting, and festivities. It is a time to reflect on the past year, make resolutions for the new year, and seek blessings for a prosperous and peaceful year ahead. The celebrations of the Nepali New Year vary across different regions of Nepal, with each region having its unique traditions and customs. However, some common practices include visiting temples, offering prayers, exchanging gifts, and indulging in traditional Nepali cuisine. One of the most significant aspects of the Nepali New Year is the exchange of greetings and well-wishes.

People greet each other with the phrase "Naya Barsha ko Subhkamana" which translates to "Happy New Year" in Nepali. It is a time to forgive past grievances and start anew, with a positive attitude and a renewed sense of purpose. In Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, the celebrations are particularly grand. The city is adorned with colorful decorations, and the streets come alive with music, dance, and laughter. The famous Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the epicenter of the New Year celebrations, with cultural programs, traditional music and dance performances, and food stalls.

The New Year is also a time for charity and generosity. Many Nepalis donate to the less fortunate, visit orphanages and old-age homes, and participate in community service activities. It is a time to give back to society and spread joy and happiness. The Nepali New Year is also a time for family reunions.

Families from different parts of the country travel to their hometowns to be with their loved ones. The New Year's Day is often spent with family, feasting on traditional Nepali dishes such as Dhal Bhat, Momos, and Sel Roti. In the Terai region of Nepal, the New Year is celebrated with a unique tradition called "Ghode Jatra," or the Horse Festival. The festival is celebrated in the city of Tundikhel, where a grand procession of horses and their riders takes place.

The festival is believed to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck and prosperity. Similarly, in the Newar community of Nepal, the New Year is celebrated with the Mha Puja, or the worship of oneself. The ritual involves cleansing oneself, dressing up in new clothes, and offering prayers for good health, happiness, and prosperity. In the hilly regions of Nepal, the New Year is celebrated with the "Chaite Dashain," a festival that marks the victory of good over evil. The festival is celebrated with the sacrifice of animals, feasting, and merrymaking. The Nepali New Year is also a time for tourism. The country's scenic beauty, rich cultural heritage, and diverse landscapes attract tourists from around the world.

The New Year is a perfect time to explore Nepal's hidden gems, from the serene lakes of Pokhara to the majestic mountains of the Himalayas. It is the best time for climbing the mountains and trekking in the high Himalayan regions. Everest Expedition, Ama Dablam Climbing, Makalu Expedition and several other mountains are attempted in this season and there is the high possibility of climbing in this period.  As Nepal welcomes the New Year 2081, it also looks forward to a year of growth, development, and progress. The country has made significant strides in recent years, with a growing economy, improved infrastructure, and a focus on sustainable development.

The government has also launched various programs to promote Nepal's cultural heritage, traditional crafts, and local products. The New Year is also a time for hope and optimism. Despite the challenges and uncertainties of the past year, Nepalis remain resilient and hopeful for a better future. The New Year is a time to turn over a new leaf, to start anew, and to work towards a better tomorrow. The Nepali New Year 2081 is a time for celebration, reflection, and hope.
