New Year is one festival which is celebrated differently at different time of the year according to the religious calendar of the places. And hence one would find a different experience altogether every time even if the occasion is introduced with the world already. Like every other state or culture of India, Sikkim also celebrates its New Year distinctively on the day their year starts according to their calendar. Losoong Festival is similar to the new year celebrated in Tibet.

Major attractions of Losoong Festival

Cham Dance is the major eye-catching event that happens in the festival to welcome the year with positivity and happiness.

The holy men or the monks perform the dance by singing and dancing. Now common singing and dancing might not excite you hence people there wear huge masks and a heavy traditional attire which makes it all the more attractive and fun to watch.
