KATHMANDU: The Gurung community is marking the ‘Tamu Lhosar’ as the New Year from today by bidding adieu to the old one.

In the Gurung language, ‘Lho’ means year and ‘sar’ means new. That’s why the meaning of Lhosar is New Year. So, it is celebrated as the Gurung New Year.

Clad in bright and colorful traditional dresses, thousands of Gurung men, women and girls gathered at Tundikhel to celebrate the festival.

Here are a few glimpses of the celebrations at Tundikhel.
