Maghi at Bhada

Our experience “Maghi at Bhada” creates an opportunity to connect with the Tharu community and learn about their culture while enjoying an important festival amongst locals.

Maghi holds special value in the Bhada Community Homestay. Family members receive blessings from the family’s elders and the women of a community are involved in the preparation of foods like Dhikri and Roti. Other than Dhikri and roti, meat items are also enjoyed as delicacies. The Tharu community believe the day of the festival is an auspicious day to start new things, be it a new business or finding a new community leader. In order to celebrate this special occasion, the day is filled with family gatherings and varieties of local food.

At Bhada Community Homestay in the Western Terai, you can immerse yourself in rural village life and experience the rich culture and customs of the ethnic Tharu community up close. This hidden gem is nestled between Bardiya National Park and Shuklaphanta National Park.

Embark on an exploration of the Bheda Baba Temple, an important site for the locals residing in this area and witness the Tharu Cultural Program at Bhada Community Homestay, where you’ll be treated to a unique showcase of traditional dances and songs by the local community.
