KATHMANDU : Khokana Tourism Festival is going to be held from 21th to 23th February, with the slogan "Save the local skills and culture".

The festival was announced at a press conference organized on Friday to establish Khokana village as an important rural tourist destination in Ward No. 21 of Lalitpur.

The festival will showcase the grand culture and popular Newar cuisine, traditional Dafa hymns as well as a large exhibition of musical traditions. The festival, which will have a lively presentation of the ancient lifestyle of Khokna, will also be seen and collected at the festival: New Architecture, Lakhe nach, local skills and production.

Khokana, which has gained fame for pure coriander oil, is the first modern electric lighting village in Nepal. There are not much celebrations in the Khokana that are drawing attention to cultural traditions. Pigs, bangles and poultry are completely forbidden in the local lifestyle.
 

The festival, which is being organized on the occasion of Visit Nepal 2020, will give the message that Khokana is emerging with renewed energy and self-confidence.
