What a great time I had in Kathmandu with the Holi Festival.

It is a public holiday and people are just enjoying themselves with water and coloured powders!
You will be a mess if you join them on the streets (which you should do). So, old clothes are important and protect your camera if you take it with you.

I was invited to join a family in the celebrations. We walked through the streets of Kathmandu and had great traditional Nepali food.

Joining the festivities of Holi was one of my highlights of my second visit to Kathmandu.
