Nepal

Located between China in the north and India in the south, Nepal is a country of high Himalayan Mountains, artistic monuments, exotic wildlife, multi-ethnicity and diverse culture. Lord Buddha was born over 2,500 years ago in this land of Mount Everest. Recorded history of Nepal begins with the Lichhavis who came to power in 400 AD. With them the nation began to prosper in art, culture, painting, architecture and sculptures. The Mallas who succeeded them gave a new turn to this prosperity by transforming, the small Kingdoms of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur into "Open air museum of Art and Architecture". Nepal is blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty and a consequent opulence of cultural varieties and at the same time she can offer new heights in conference facilities and incentive opportunities with the Himalaya as a backdrop.

Nepal is the "Land of Paradise" for cultural tourists, trekkers and mountaineers. The natural landscape of mountains, rivers, glacial lakes, forests, wild animals, favorable climate and the hospitality of the Nepalese people and their culture are major main attractions.

The most exhilarating titles with which Nepal has been admired and praised by various renowned travel writers in recognition of her cultural richness, viz., Living cultural Museum, Shangri-La, Roof of the World, Birth place of the Apostle of Peace, Country of Living Goddess, City of Golden Pagodas & Parasols, Himalayan Pilgrimage, Nature amphitheatre, Melting pot of Hinduism & Buddhism, Birth place of Sita, Abode of Shiva, Land of Mysticism & Exoticism, Land of non-stop festivals etc. are explicit and self-explanatory. They tell the world about our incomparable & prosperous cultural heritage.

Nepal covers an area of 147,181 square kilometers, and stretches 145-241 kilometers north to south and 850 kilometers west to east. Elevations are varied in the country. The highest point is Mt. Everest (8848 m) in the north and the lowest point (70 meters above sea level) is located at Kechana Kalan of Jhapa District. Altitude increases as you travel south to north. In the north temperatures are below –40 degrees celsius and in the Terai, temperatures rise to 40 degrees celsius in the summer.

In Nepal, Hinduism and Buddhism are the two main religions. The two have co-existed down the ages and many Hindu temples share the same complex as, Buddhist shrines. Hindu and Buddhist worshippers may regard the same god with different names while performing religious rites.

Nepal's heritage is alive and dynamic. Shamanism, Pan-animism & Witch-craft are still practised in remote regions. Temples, shrines, monuments and monasteries are extremely active with devotees burning butter-lamps, singing hymns, chiming temple bells and playing drums. The only country that has living goddess "Kumari".
