The country of Nepal is most readily associated with the Himalayas and Mount Everest. Nestled along the sacred mountain range, this tiny country has a history and tradition harking back to thousands of years. The origin of Nepali culture is heavily linked with ancient Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions. Over the years, it has evolved as a unique mix of Indian, Tibetan and Mongolian cultures.
Though Nepal is aptly called the “roof of the world”, there is much more to this tiny country than just mountains and mountaineering. Granted, a majority of the tourists who visit the country come to climb the Himalayan peaks. But Nepal also has plenty to offer for people interested in culture, religion, spirituality, nature and wildlife.
