Every September/October, during the Dashain festival, these simple (but huge!) bamboo swings are built all over Nepal for the kids to play on. There’s one in every village and plenty of kids enjoying the ride. The swings disappear pretty quickly after the festival. We’ve wondered why they don’t just leave them up, but perhaps they become unsafe over time? As it is, that’s a long way to fall….they’re pretty good at it, though!
