About Nepal and this Trip
Located between India and Tibet, Nepal offers a fantastic array of attractions for tourists. Itʼs best known as the home of Mount Everest, but there is much more to the country than just the worldʼs highest mountain. Nepal is a fascinating land of ancient history, scenic grandeur, and vibrant cultures & people. Itʼs also one of the richest countries, in the world in terms of bio-diversity, due to its unique geographical position. Nepal is situated between the worldʼs two largest & most ancient civilizations (China & India) and has an incredibly diverse culture because of this unique location. Nepal is the holy land of Lord Pashupatinath and Gautam Buddha, where the Hindus and Buddhists have coexisted for centuries in total harmony. Lord Buddha, the ʻlight of Asiaʼ, was born in Lumbini in Nepalʼs southern plains. This makes Nepal a sacred pilgrimage destination for all Buddhists. The temple of Pashupatinath is Nepalʼs most sacred Hindu shrine and one of the four most important sites in the world for Shiva worshippers.
