Nepal - The Himalayan Country

Himalayan Kingdom, Nepal - a country of amazing extremes, is the home of the world's highest mountains, historic cities and the forested plains where the lordly tigers and the great one-horned rhinoceros trundle at the ease. In fact enchantment is everywhere for any one in search of Shangri-La!

Nepal has one of the unique in the world that it has within a 20 km radius seven World Heritage Sites namely Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Bouddhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Stupa and Changu Narayan Temple. The Scholar Kirkpatrick remarks that Nepal is a country with more temples than house and more gods than the people. Here Festivals over number the days.

Nepal and Himalayas-the two names go side by side. Nepal, in political maps, is a small country but it has the most diverse culture and beautiful landscapes. Nepal, situated in the lapse of mighty Himalayas, is regarded as Dev Bhumi the land of gods and world’s two major religions Hinduism and Buddhism co-exist in perfect harmony.
