Chaite Dashain begins in Nepal in Chaitra Month of Nepali Calendar. Chaite Dashain 2020 begins on 25 March and ends on April 2.
In many places of Nepal Chaite Dashain is celebrated only for two days: Chaitra Shukla Ashtami (April 1, 2020) & Chaitra Shukla Navami (Sri Rama Nawami: April 2). Ghatsthapana is observed on 25 March for Chaitra Dashain.
