Sonam Lhosar is celebrated by the Tamang communities of Nepal, North East India, Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Bhutan. They have their own culture and language which popular them from other ethnic groups. Tamang means Horse Traders.
Sonam Lhoshar falls on the first full moon of the month Magh in Nepali Calendar and the early January to mid-February in English calendar. So, the date is different in every Sonam Lhoshar in every year. During the day of Sonam Lhosar, Tamangs communities’ people clean and decorate their house to welcome the New Year and visit the monasteries and stupas in their traditional costumes
