The government of Nepal has announced that Tuesday, March 12, 2013, had been declared as a non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming Gyalbo Losar Sherpa festival.
The aforementioned announcement is in line with last spring's (2012-03-29) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2069 (April 2012-April 2013), however the date seems incorrect to us, as it appears to use the incorrect lunar calendar to determine the date of the 2013 Gyalbo Losar non-working public holiday, leading to a 1-month error in 2013.
