Kathmandu, also known as Kantipur, is the capital of Nepal where a tourist would typically land by air. This is where the temple of the living goddess – highly revered by Nepali people – is located. To the South of Western Nepal lies the world heritage site of Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautama Buddha. Lying 4600 feet above the sea level, just outside Kathmandu, Bhaktapur or Bhadgaon – meaning the city of temples – is home to medieval art and architecture.
Pashupati Nath temple is one of the most celebrated and holiest temples in Nepal. It lies on the sacred bank of Bagmati river, 6 kilometers outside the capital city. Tourists seeking spiritualism and relaxation visit the Boudanath pilgrimage center that is often frequented by Buddhist monks for meditation. And, for those wanting some adventure, visit the Nagarkot valley for trekking, mountain biking, and spectacular view of the Himalayan range.

Nepal is a multicultural, multilingual, and multi-ethnic country where Hinduism and Buddhism are dominant religions. Folklore is an essential part of the Nepali culture, and their folktales are often beautifully expressed through music and dance. Living at high altitudes, its people are deeply religious. Family, art, mutual respect, literature, delicious food, and music are a way of everyday life for its people.
Traditionally conservative, the people of Nepal draw their many traditions from Hindu and Buddhism religions. They love to celebrate every moment of their life and events that hold religious significance, which is reflected by the fact that they have the highest number of public holidays (of 36 days in a year) in the world. Tales of evil versus good, love, affection, demons and ghosts will leave everyone captivated.
