Historical tragedies, timeless traditions and clanging bells that call upon the gods, A Nomad’s perception. It hits you the moment the wheels of your plane touches the tarmac of Nepal’s main airport; within moments of arriving in Nepal - an irresistible sense of friendship, history, community and spirituality. Nepal is a complex and persuasive country and it’s impossible to overcome the excitement of actually being there. From the colourful and chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the hilltop village of Bandipur or the laid-back lakeside town of Pokhara, you quickly become a willing participant in local life. Taking time to strike up a chit-chat with roadside chai sellers, sharing a joke with a taxi driver and exchanging smiles while bartering for a bargain are all part of the Nepalese appeal. You don’t have to trek Nepal to discover its natural beauty, but hiking the Himalayas is a stunning highlight for most who muster the energy. Nepal gives you the valuable opportunity to discover a world beyond your own it’s a country where the traditions & culture defy time.
Nepal is known throughout the world for its color and contrasts - a hidden Shangri - La of nature, culture, and adventure. Its hallmark, undoubtedly, is the majestic snow - capped Himalaya, home to eight of the world’s 8,000 meter peaks. There is, however, a whole lot more to Nepal than its heights. Powerful rivers rush out from the Himalaya providing world class rafting opportunities as they cascade down the middle hills and empty out into the steamy flatlands of the Terai in the south.
Indeed, the breath taking biotic diversity of the Nepal is mirrored by the equally diverse population whose rich cultural heritage colors this nation with festivals and rituals, songs and masked dances, and a piety the level of which is matched by few places on earth. This piety is reflected in the many artistic temples and monuments its people have built. This peaceful Himalayan state is thus an adventurer’s paradise, a naturalist’s dream, and a living ethnographic museum. Nepal’s history & culture can be explored in Kathmandu; on its narrow cobbled streets with temples, stupas & pagodas at every turning as you hike the walks. The three ancient cities of Kathmandu, Patan & Bhaktapur are filled with a medieval culture where intrigue, grandeur & religion embrace in diverse characteristics, leaving behind a rich legacy of impressive sights that are virtual feasts to the eyes of visitors. Its rulers of the time created mysterious traditions that are devoutly followed till this very day Nepal Nomad have designed out of the ordinary tours that take you into ancient history as if it happened yesterday get friendly with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
