Nepal is one of the most beautiful dreamlands in Asia. Impregnable and enchanting Snowy Himalayas including the highest Mt. Everest (8848 M/ 29,028 ft), flat lowlands, lush tropical jungles full of wildlife and with varieties of flora and fauna, all lies within a distance of 150 miles/240 kilometers of each other. Nepal is a paradise for the tourists and a visitor's dream come true.
Kathmandu, the capital with its rich cultural heritage, exquisite temples and Pagodas dedicated to the Hindu Gods & Goddess, Buddhist Chaityas and old palaces with carved windows and doors are a sculptor's dream and an architect's delight. It is a land of incredible contrasts.
Its cultural landscape is every bit as diverse: a dozen major ethnic groups, speaking as many as fifty languages and dialects, coexist in this narrow, jumbled buffer state, while two of the world's great religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, overlap and mingle with older tribal traditions - yet it's a testimony to the Nepalis' tolerance and good humour that there is no tradition of ethnic or religious strife.
Nepal is a nation of unaffected villages and terraced hillsides - more than eighty percent of the population lives off the land - and whether you're trekking, biking or bouncing around in packed buses, sampling this simple lifestyle is perhaps the greatest pleasure of all.
Nepal is probably the most famous destination in the world for a growing range of outdoor activities, covered in a separate section of this guide. Trekking from village to village through the hills and up into high Himalayan valleys is an experience not to be missed. The scenery varies from cultivated terraces to lush rhododendron forests to glacier-capped peaks.
Mother Nature has showered her infinite love and gifts to this land and the visitors can witness these while trekking in the mountains, rafting in the thundering rivers and on elephant back safaris in the jungles.
