Every year thousands of adventure enthusiast  come to see the bull fight marking Maghe Sankranti, the first day of the tenth month in the nation’s calendar.  Bull fights has been a tradition of Nepal from the past where huge concern have been raised by animal activists.

During the battle several pairs of bull entertained the crowd with the amazement and excitement. The bull are highly trained for the  annual fiesta where the  Nepali version of  the bull fight  is completely different from the European as no  bloodshed occurs,  bouts only go on until one animal tires and gives up.
