Nepal Traveller Holi Contest comes to a close
In light of the colourful season of spring and the festivities of Holi, Nepal Traveller celebrated in a different way this year. We came up with a creative and innovative Photo Contest where participants sent original, colourful pictures on Facebook and Instagram with the #nepaltravellerholi.
The winner of the first of its kind photo contest is Riyaz Shrestha. An MBBS graduate currently involved with an internship at Dhulikhel Hospital. He was also the Chief Editor of the annual magazine of Kathmandu University’s School of Medical Sciences.
Message from the winner:
“Holi is one of my favourite festivals and every year I enjoy it to the fullest. The picture I sent for Nepal Traveller’s Photo Contest was inspired by Miss Nepal 2018, Shrinkhala Khatiwada’s ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ video. Not only popular for Mount Everest our culture and traditions also hold great significance to our tourism. With my contribution I somehow wanted to promote Nepal as an ideal getaway, and the contest was a great platform.”
Shrestha adds, “Also, the ‘dinner for two at Hotel Annapurna’ further added to my delight. I will be giving it to my parents, a night just for themselves.”
