A soaring republic intertwined with the Himalaya, Nepal boats eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, making it a must for those drawn by the magnetic allure of rarefied peaks.
Bordered by China and the Indian state of Sikkim, this mythic country is believed to have coalesced from peoples of the Indus Valley Civilization (3300 – 1300 BC) expanding into the Kathmandu Valley. Small medieval kingdoms arose and a succession of empires saw Nepal’s principalities fought over, as the region thrived amid the essential trade of the ancient Salt Route. Today the capital of Kathmadu is still rich with colorful markets offering exotic shopping for handcrafts, spices, jewelry, and textiles of the finest quality.
Nepal’s cultures are a confluence of 125 distinct ethnic group, each contributing to a heady array of art, craft, folklore, religion, and festivals. And while Hinduism is predominant, Tibetan Buddhism holds a significant place, especially among the Sherpa people of Nepal’s mountain towns—and as the Lord Buddha was born in Nepal.
