Losar is celebrated by the Monpas who are a majority in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh. Belonging to the Mongoloid stock, the Monpas are mainly into agriculture and animal husbandry. It must also be mentioned that Losar is the most important festival of the Monpas in Tawang.

Commemorating the advent of the new year, Losar is the occasion when the Monpas feast, drink and make merry. Relatives and friends get together and celebrate this festival in a very pompous manner. The festival of Losar falls in the end of February or early March and is celebrated for 8 – 15 days. Indeed, the joie-de-vivre that characterizes this festival is simply fascinating.
