About Nepal :
Nepal, the only Hindu kingdom of the world is situated
between Tibet and India has thus produced a remarkable
mixture of peoples and cultures offering us a fascinating
diversity of ethnic and cultural groups with their wonderful
historical background. Day to day life in Nepal is regulated
by the religious calendar and strict codes on ritual
observance. After Nepal's long period of isolation Kathmandu
has become the gateway to Nepal. The Kathmandu Valley, which
is the cultural and political centre of Nepal, is
magnificent for its wealth of unique temples. We see in
Nepal the greatest mountains of the world. Differences in
altitude in Nepal leads to great diversity in vegetation

mountains wastes to the high altitude west.

over 2,500 years ago. A landlocked country situated between
