Namaste and welcome to the
Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. Nepal is still one of the few countries in the world where you
can escape from the excesses of Western Civilization and yet where tourist amenities are
sufficiently developed for your stay to be comfortable.
Outside Kathmandu, its teeming
capital, Nepal is a land of remote mountain villages, whose people survive by growing
their own food on the thousands of hill terraces that scale even the steepest slopes.
Mechanized farming is unheard of here; the fields are ploughed by water-buffalo, the corn
harvested and threshed by hand and ground by water mills. If you stay in a trekking lodge,
your bread will likely as not be made from flour ground that day, your vegetables freshly
harvested from the fields.
Nepal has been a unique meeting place for
mountaineers from all over the world. Some have come to scale an unconquered peak, others
to undertake scientific research in the high mountains. Today, Nepal sees tourists of many
nationalities; some come to complete an energetic trek or high adrenaline rafting trip,
others to enjoy the peace and cultural richness of Nepals lower slopes and valleys.
You can visit villages that are ten days trek from the nearest road, or ones that can be
reached in two hours.
