The government of Nepal has announced that Sunday, September 27, 2015, had once again been declared a non-working public holiday in the Kathmandu Valley on account of the upcoming Indra Jatra annual non-working public holiday of Nepal.
The aforementioned announcement is in addition to the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2072 (mid-April 2015 to mid-April 2016), announced, earlier this spring (2015-03-03).
Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (2001-01-13), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays, meaning that, taking into account the recent declaration by Nepal of Friday, September 25, 2015, as a non-working public holiday across the country on account of the upcoming Baqar-Eid (Feast of Sacrifice), the Kathmandu Valley will be on public holidays for 3 consecutive days, from Friday to Sunday, September 25 to 27, 2015, inclusively.
