3) 10 World Heritage sites.

Nepal, though a very small country, is home to 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Nonetheless, Kathmandu, the Capital city of Nepal itself is illustrated by seven world Heritages that include –

  • The Buddhist Stupas of Boudhanath.
  • Where you can find an affectionate harmony between Buddhism and Hinduism, on the hill of Swayambhunath.
  • The ancient Hindu temple of Pashupatinath.
  • The Oldest Changu-Narayan temple.
  • The Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur.

Apart from these the other world heritage sites of Nepal are –

  • Lumbini is the birthplace of Lord Buddha.
  • Chitwan National Park and
  • Sagarmatha National Park (Everest National Park)

Positioned at the foothills of the high Himalayas and vibrant hills, Nepal displays these magical inheritances that can’t be overlooked. These world heritage sites certainly reflect the unique culture, ancient history, and amazing legacies that are preserved with admiration and significance. They reflect the genuine harmony between Hinduism and Buddhism that prospered in Nepal for ages. Furthermore, these monuments reveal Nepal's exceptional culture, traditions, incomparable craftsmanship, and unique architecture.

All these Heritage Sites are a landmark that has so much to do with Nepal’s historical and cultural significance and it justly answers your question as to why visit Nepal.

4) Religious Harmony.

Nepal is the land of multilingual, multiracial, multicultural, and multi-religious societies. However, religious acceptance among the diverse societies in Nepal is marvelous. Everybody has the right to choose or practice a religion of their choice on the contrary living in the same society is united and mutual. Therefore, Nepal can truly be called a model for religious harmony. Though Hinduism dominates the majority yet the Stupas and temples prospering simultaneously in legendary religious sites prove their harmony with one another. In this tiny country besides Hinduism and Buddhism, Islam, Sikhs, Christianity, and many other local communities including the Kirats thrive hand in hand. Nevertheless, all their traditions thrive harmoniously without eccentricity.

5) Unique Culture:

While trekking in Nepal Himalayas you would be surprised to witness the very rich culture that this country sustains. Further, it’s very unique in its features in the entire universe. However, you would see the influence of Tibetan, Mongolian, and Indian culture yet with these mixtures it has evolved with distinctiveness over the years. If truth be told this small country has over 125 ethnic groups and more than 123 languages spoken. In different parts of Nepal, diverse customs and traditions flourish yet the wonderful harmony. This religious harmony is what makes Nepal so exceptional.

Though Nepal is known as the only Hindu Kingdom in the world however, it is charmingly interwoven with Buddhism, Hinduism, Shamanism, and other beliefs. Religious tolerance and mutual harmony are nowhere to be found. In fact, traditionally Nepal has a beautiful intermingling of traditions, festivals, beliefs, and philosophies that blend in together with tranquillity.

However, Trekking in Nepal Himalayas involves a lot of excitement. Come over and witness the real trekking experience. Meet the locals, enjoy our delicacies which are awesome, and ‘FEEL THE DIFFERENCE’.

6) Very responsive and peace-loving people

In the midst of modernization and Western influence, prosperous culture still thrives among the Nepalese. Nepali people are very approachable and peace-loving. Though they live under diverse geographical conditions yet they always bore a smile on their face. They always welcome you as special guests with the traditional salutation of “Namaste”, a universal greeting. Interact with the Nepali people who have a tough lifestyle, but despite that, they are very friendly and have a positive outlook towards life, and enjoy every second of their existence.

Even after the disastrous 2015 earthquake and the tragic COVID-19, it is very strange to see the Nepalese being very cheerful and welcoming. Happiness among the people of Nepal masks the sad realities of the country – as we believe in the phrase “we never know what tomorrow brings, today is a good day to be the last – let’s be HAPPY”. Accordingly, we appeal and deliver this message to every Nepal lover around the world to “VISIT NEPAL”.
