Various Poets, Writers, Painters and Theater Artists were participated in the campaign which aimed to look for local heritages and cultures. According to the Coordinator of the campaign Anita Lama, as Bouddha is considered as a hub of Mongolian, the campaign was organized in Bouddha due to Sonam Loshar.
Instead of going for hiking, participants of the campaign went around the Bouddhanath Stupa. Lama said, “This is also a hiking of its kind.” Various dignitaries were present at the event along with the local representatives and parliament members. Participants made paintings and poems reflecting the cultural, historical and traditional importance of Bouddha, a UNSCEO designated world heritage site in the country.
