Tendong Lho Rum Faat In 2021

Date Day Celebrated In
08 August 2021 Sunday Sikkim

This is a festival that begins with prayers to Mount Tendong (''the hill of the raised horn'' in the Lepcha dialect). This mountain is situated in the town of Namchi in South Sikkim. It is so called because according to Lepcha mythology, it is believed to have risen from the horns of the great deity during the great flood in order to save the people of the tribe. The great deluge lasted for 40 days and nights drowned the region of Mayel Lyang (modern day Sikkim) but the Lepcha tribe was saved because they were able to stay on the elevated land of the mountain. This is the reason why it is venerated on the very first day of the festival that lasts for three days.
