There are few other places in the world with such a harmonious blend of cultures. We recommend you take a cultural tour in the Kathmandu Valley to discover about the Newari founders, or perhaps an ox cart village tour in the Terai region to truly discover Nepal's fascinating mix of cultures.
Nepal is divided into three layers, according to its geographical settings - Himalayan region, Mid-hills, and Terai region (flat land). Himalayan region is the home of legendary Sherpas, who are renowned for climbing mountain Everest. Nepal's convenient weather, fertile soil, and natural setting provided a lucrative environment for many emperors and tribes to settle in times gone by. Mighty dynasties ruled Nepal throughout various episodes in its dramatic history, bringing a rich variety of cultural and religious groups to this relatively tiny land.
For those who are interested in the gastronomy of Asia, visit Nepal and you will discover a world of flavours! Nepal's tourist-friendly cuisine ranges from traditional favourites like dal bhat and ever-popular momos, to international dishes from continental to Asian and beyond. Nepal is also a fabulous destination for trekking, kayaking, rafting, bungee jumping, mountain biking and canyoning - meaning there truly is something for everyone!
