Nepal has always been a dividing line between cultures and civilizations, and a crossroads for the commerce and culture. Here the plains of the subcontinent climb up to the high plateau of Tibet, the languages and people is India give way to those of china and the Hindu religion blends in to Buddhism. Nepal is often a complex blend of the two influences and this vitiation is further complicated by the diversity of ethnic group within the country.
Surrounded by the greatest of the heights of the Himalaya, the country Nepal is a land of eternal attraction, a where one visit is hardly ever enough. It is a land of colorful cultures, ancient history and people, superb scenery and some of the best walking on earth.
Nepal’s history is closely related to its geographical location, separating the fertile plains of India from the desert-like plateau of Tibet. Its position between India and china meant the country was able at times to play the role of intermediary – a canny trader between two great powers – while at other times it faced the threat of invasion. Internally, it’s history was just as dynamic, with city states in the hills vying with each other for power until one powerful king, Prithivi Narayan Shaha , overran then all that history is very visible today with the three great towns of the Kathmandu valley – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur – still bearing witness to their days as fiercely completive mediaeval mini kingdom. Indeed, in Nepal it is often possible to suspend belief and mentally roll the clock right back to the mediaeval era.
