The government of Nepal has announced that Thursday, September 15, 2016, had once again been declared a non-working public holiday in Nepal's three districts of the Kathmandu Valley, Dhulikhel and Dolakha, on account of the upcoming Indra Jatra annual non-working public holiday of Nepal.
The aforementioned announcement, contrary to some past years (25-Sep-2015, 16-Sep-2013, and 08-Sep-2011), in line with last spring's (02-Apr-2016) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2073 (mid-April 2016 to mid-April 2017).
Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (13-Jan-2001), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays.
