Nepal is not just about Mt. Everest and Himalayan treks. For the first-time visitor, the culture and customs of Nepal can be an overwhelming experience. The reverence that Nepalese have for their lakes, mountains, and glaciers, their various elaborate rituals and the numerous temples everywhere you go give Nepal an aura of mysticism and spirituality.
Nepal has been inhabited for a long time, and written records provide proof at least dating to the 7th century BC. Various dynasties like the Mallas, Lichchavis, Kirats, and Thakuris ruled Nepal at different points in time and accordingly influenced its culture and architecture. The predominant religions have mostly remained Hindu and Buddhism and hence the huge number of Hindu temples and monasteries.
Being a valley nestled between high mountain peaks from all sides, Nepal has mostly preserved its natural ecosystem providing a haven to Himalayan flora and fauna to flourish.
