This is also a festival of thanks. A rich man's house is chosen and gathered for a festival prepared by rural women. A vessel of rice beer is contributed from every house and in the fields a dance called "Pakhupu La" is performed.

The number of days is not fixed for the festival of Lyuva Khutla, because the duration of the festival depends on the number of days of villagers to contribute food and drink.

Even today, this festival is celebrated in the district of Sihha in the beginning of March which is also called Malland. Traditional dresses are decorated on this day and cultural dances are performed by artists. People dance on the tune of folk songs and community festivals in the evening.
