  2. Dear Friend

    When does Lakhe jatra finish in Dolakha. Does it last only until janai purnima? or Krishna Astami. I am collecting data on this festival and would like to see it

    Thanks

  3. Hi! normally Lakhe Jatra in Dolakha starts from the day after Gathemangal (July 17) until Janai Purnima (July 18) almost daily . However, also on Krishna Astami, there is a Lakhe Jatra in Dolakha.
