Directed by Kiran Chamling Rai and written by Rajan Mukarung, this play tells you the story of Khuwalung, a big boulder located at the confluence of the Tamor, Arun and Sunkoshi rivers. Khuwalung is considered the cultural epicentre of Kirati people to perform cultural rituals. 

The two-hour play being staged at Mandala Theatre, Thapagaun, will enlighten you about the significance of Khuwalung culturally and naturally. Hence, this can be the best option for culture-conscious people to spend this weekend in Kathmandu.

Khuwalung will run through August 14, every day at 5:15 PM except Mondays. There will be an additional show on Fridays and Saturdays at 1:00 PM. 

2. Read Hiti Pranali

Most art exhibitions happening in Kathmandu are either about traditional art or modern ones. But, this exhibition happening through this weekend in Kathmandu offers you both. The artworks presented are simple yet deep and have different layers of meaning. It will be a perfect treat for every art lover.

The exquisite exhibition that began on July 17 is likely to continue for around two months.

4. Listen to Tasbir by Monkey Temple  

After a hiatus of three months, Rock band Monkey Temple have recently released a new music video for their latest song Tasbir last weekend. If you have not got a chance to listen to it, this can be your best weekend music.

The song written and composed by the band’s vocalist Sareen Deoja is romantic. It sounds soft and easy on the ears while the music video directed by Kuhang shows different sides of the relationship. 

5. Go to Sajjan Raj Vaidya’s concert

6. Eat burgers at  Burger Shack

Located in Jawalakhel, burgers at Burger Shack are as good as they come. These American-style burgers are something everyone should try. They are meaty and juicy and come with their secret sauce that will make you crave more. The size of some burgers at one of the best burger places in Kathmandu is quite small, but the taste is simply awesome.

So, don’t you try it this weekend in Kathmandu?

7. Exchange plants
