Nepal views

By end of March to early April the new year starts in Nepal according to the Bikram Sambat calender which considers the moon phases. The new Year is celebrated in a festival lasting some days. In Bhaktapur young men each from one of the four districts compete to track a ton-weighted carriage with man-high wheels into their own quarter; success is said to earn luck for the winning team and its quarter, but at the same time is a quite dangerous adventure, see the picture from the 2071 B.S. celebration (April 2014)
