Nepal at a Glance!
Probably BBC Holiday rightly said that Nepal is one of the 50 places to see before you die. It surprises you within moments of arriving in Nepal – an overwhelming sense of friendship, culture, community and spirituality. More than that, it will thrill you after seeing the beauty and diversity of this country. From all of the highest mountains in the world, eight are in Nepal including Mt. Everest at 8848 meters of altitude. This is the country where Buddha was born and where millions of Hindus worship Gods and Goddess in their daily life. This part of the world is just different, more like a spiritual world which directly links with people’s day to day life.
Many people dream to visit Nepal once in their life time. Nepal is a dream place to experience culture and history, thousands of years of artcrafts, great landscapes and trekking trails, elephant safaris into dense forest, and one of the best places in the world for outdoor and extreme sport activities and many more. You will find Nepal very small on the world map, between China and India, but as the saying goes “small is beautiful” and Nepal really enforces that saying.
Nepal is distinctly known as the world of colorful vibrant festivals. Most of the festivals celebrated in Nepal have religious connotation and some are based on important events from ancient mythology and epic literature.
Nepalese have diverse beliefs and ethnic backgrounds. Despite these facts, all unite in the celebration of the year’s major festivals. Festivals such as Dashain and Tihar are of national signiﬁcance; such as Bisket Jatra or Rato Machchhendranath Jatra, belong to the traditions of the old Valley towns and still others, such as Chait, are observed only by a particular ethnic community.
The vivid cultural diversity of Nepal can be observed in the difference of different festival celebrations. Here are depicted the 10 major festivals in Nepal.
