Nepal is a country that attracts people who love the mountains. Its unique culture can be seen in the numerous temples, shrines, Buddhist stupas and monasteries. The beautiful darbar squares of Kathmandu give an insight into the erstwhile kingdom.
As to its geographical diversity, this ancient kingdom happens to be part of not just the Himalayan range, but also the Indo Gangetic plains, and borders with Tibet. Tibetan, Nepalese, Indian and Chinese cultures are intertwined in this mystical land.
Mountain biking, kayaking, white-water rafting and trekking are par for the course. The choice of trails, from easy to tough, or day-long to week-long, is simply mind boggling. For the initiated there is Everest Base Camp, the Annapurna Sanctuary, besides other less explored treks.
In addition to the highland experiences, the Terai region and the grasslands have wildlife safaris, sanctuaries that are home to diverse species of plants and animals. Chitwan National Park is home to the Asian elephant as well as the one-horned rhino. Sunrise at Nagarkot, sunsets in Phewa Lake, and a trip to the gigantic Boudhnath Stupa are awe inspiring.
Street food and local cuisines are also quite distinct in this ancient yet cosmopolitan land. Newari food is a reflection of the vast rural expanses and fertile Himalayan lands.
Nepal is a growing country, emerging from an ancient Kingdom but learning through its diaspora to bring in changes in the cities as well as smaller towns.
