The Jauljibi and Thal Fairs in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand are matchless. Both these places throb with life when these fairs are held. They are the meeting points of different cultures. Both these fairs are primarily commercial, but one should not miss out as you will get a great deal of insight into the culture of the Shaukat, the Nepalis, and the Kumaoni. 

How to Celebrate Jauljibi and Thal Fairs in Uttarakhand

The fairs started in the year 1914, and they have been continuing to this day. During these festivals, the rustic people of these hilly regions come together to meet each other and, at the same time to carry on some business. A variety of products are sold in both these fairs. People from the neighboring country of Nepal come over to sell horses, foreign goods, leather goods, and ghee. In return, they take back home food grains, jaggery, and woolen products. They are pointers to the mercantile and cultural prosperity of the region.

The Jauljibi fair is held on the auspicious day of Makar Sankranti, which falls in the month of January. Jauljibi celebrates at the meeting point of two rivers – Kali and Gori. Thal Fair is held on Vaisakhi Sankranti, which sometimes falls in April and is celebrated at Thal.
