A perfect blend of Hinduism and Buddhism, trekking and village tour in the Langtang region around the mid-autumn is definitely a great holiday for culture and mountain lovers. Dashin, the biggest festival in Nepal, celebrated around this time of year and dates of ceremony vary each year according to the lunar calendar.
