The festive moods are prominent on each and every villager. Holiday makers and tourists throng the place during the Festival and also participate in various events.

After this foremost ritual, Natives assemble together to visit the Dhangaspa family house to pay tributes to the family members. Drums are played and bugles are blown in order to greet and salute the heroic team that climbed up the hill top to accumulate the flowers.

Villagers carry war weapons to depict and display the ancient war scenes while they perform during the Phulaich fair.

A procession, surrounded by gold and silver idols of the deities, is an attraction which can be seen on 20th of the month.

All the deities are brought back to their original abode (temple) on 23rd day of the Bhadrapada. Goat and lamb sacrifices are quite common. This marks the end of the eventful festival.
