MODE OF TREK
Teej or Haritilak, is a nationwide festival celebrated by Nepali Hindu women. In the meantime, tourists are spellbound by surprising festive. The festival is retraced from the ancient Hindu scriptures explaining the story of a union of the god Shiva and goddess Parvati (Teej Goddess). It is believed that Parvati fasted for 108 years for Shiva to show love and dedication before he accepted her as his wife.
Following the rituals, the festival involves three days of celebration followed by singing, dancing, women adorned in Red Sarees, bangles, jewelry, red Tika, hands covered with henna, and delicious food preparation. Meanwhile, Teej is also celebrated for the end of the monsoon. On the first day, called DarKhane din, women are invited to their parents’ or friends’ homes for celebration and dining for delicious traditional cuisines.
From the second day, women fast for 24 hours without water and food for the happiness of their spouse, well-being, and long life of their husband, worshipping the god Shiva and goddess Parvati. Subsequently, women break the fast after performing the Sapta Puja and bathing in holy rivers on the last day, known as Rishi Panchami followed by several celebrations and worship. This festival falls in late July or August.
Nepal is rich in culture and believes in “Atithi Devo Bhava-the guest is a god”; hence, most travelers get an immense opportunity to celebrate this magical festival, especially women travelers being a part of it (not necessarily fasting). The trek during the Teej festival leaves you flabbergasted, seeing the valleys and villages preserving the culture and celebrating on the high mountains abandoned far away from urban. The celebration of Teej, such as dancing, singing, wearing beautiful attires, and delicious food surrounded by beautiful landscapes, natural beauty, dense forests, high mountains, and rivers are surprisingly mesmeriz
