It's worn at the fanciest of dinner parties, it's worn during religious celebrations, it's worn during weddings and it's even worn while just chilling around the household. We're obviously referring to a saree, the quintessential attire for the Nepali woman. Be it in the countryside or bustling urban centers, Nepali women have always taken great pride wearing a saree. The fabric with which one is made and the intricacies of the designs differ, of course, but the folds and drapes with which it's worn remain the same.
How difficult is it to drape a saree? Well, it depends on who you ask. Many Nepali women are taught from a young age the basics of wearing a saree so to them it's intuitive and the entire process won't last more than 5 minutes. The host for this course, Navina Shrestha, is one such woman who's been draping sarees since her early teens. She's always been fascinated with saree, its significance in Nepali culture and more importantly she's very keen on teaching visitors to Nepal how this most basic (for her) process is done. Sign up for this course, get yourself draped in a saree and walk around the lakeside to see what it feels like to walk in the clothes of a Nepali woman. ;)
Note: The price includes a half day rental of the saree. For full day, there is an additional 500Rs surcharge.
