Nepal: Blessed Beauty

Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia bordered north by the People's Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the Republic of India. With an area of 147,181 square kilometers (56,827 sq km) and a population of approximately 35 million, Nepal is ranked as the world’s 41st most populous country. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city. For some geographical gist, some folks say Nepal is like a yam struggling to grow between two huge boulders.

Nepal is a country of highly diverse and rich geographical features, culture and religions. The mountainous region in the north has eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including the tallest in the world i.e. Sagarmatha, the Mount Everest. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. This small Himalayan nation has over 240 peaks above 20,000 ft (6,096m) above sea level.

With constitutional monarchy throughout most of her history, Nepal was ruled by the Shah dynasty from 1768, when Prithvi Narayan Shah unified many small kingdoms (principalities). However, a decade-long People's Revolution by the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) along with several weeks of mass protests by other major political parties in 2006 culminated in a peace accord. The ensuing elections for the constituent assembly voted overwhelmingly in favor of displacing the last Nepali monarch Gyanendra Shah and the establishment of a federal democratic republic in May 28, 2008.

Slotted amidst the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the ice-cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of the plains. It's a land of yaks and yetis, temples & cows, stupas, monasteries and Sherpa’s with some of the best trekking trails on earth. The Himalayan's most sophisticated urban cultures took shape here, in the three great medieval cities of the Kathmandu bowl shaped Valley - Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur - home to a world class artistic and architectural heritage.
The landscapes are unequalled in beauty and variety, cultural diversity, aesthetically built monuments, rugged beauty and tranquility of the snowcapped shimmering mountains, serenity and placid lakes and valleys, an unmatched collection of flora, fauna and wild life, diverse races, ethnic groups, dialects and languages all combined to make Nepal a visitor's dream for holidays. This is a land of immense contrasts.

Ancient Kathmandu, the capital city, can be described with a single word - 'striking’. Its array of Pagodas dedicated to every deity in the Hindu pantheon and Buddhist Chaityas are a sculptor's dream and architect's delight. Old and new jostle for space with one another in people’s lifestyles, buildings and cobbled stone streets.

Trekking in the mountains, rafting on raging rivers, steamy safaris in the jungles and sightseeing in Kathmandu – name it…its all up for grabs…and the ubiquitous clanging of temple bells throughout the day send you into blissful sleep at night! To miss it is a blunder… THIS IS NEPAL FOR YOU…YOU ARE UNLIKELY TO FIND THIS ANYWHERE ELSE ON THE PLANET…LOVE IT OR DUMP IT, MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD PREFER THE FORMER!!!
