Nepal lies in the Abode of Snow: The Himalayas. The mountain kingdom has unique history of never being ruled by a foreign ruler or imperialist power although both of its neighbors India and China have a long history of being dominated by foreign rule since the late medieval times. This factor has contributed largely to the preservation of the originality of the century old Himalayan and Tibetan tradition and culture in the country.

People often tour in Nepal to witness its lofty peeks and Snow covered mountains. But besides this unparalleled natural beauty Nepal has a lot more to offer. Nepal has a very distinct culture, which has been shaped in isolation of the outer world. The Hindu and Buddhist religion have their own set of varied beliefs and practices in Nepal as compared to India and China. Nepal tour has been popular for its natural beauty but of late Nepal Culture Tour is becoming a favorite among the tourists who never get tired of exploring newer lifestyles and culture of the people around the world.

The Nepalese history is full of fables and myths about Brave kings, magic and politics. The royal past of the country can be witnessed in the Capital of Nepal: Kathmandu. The famous Pashupatinath temple gives an insight into the religious beliefs of the people of Nepal which is an inseparable part of their culture and lifestyle.

Many people in the semi urban and rural Nepal can still be seen wearing the traditional Nepalese costumes. Folk dances, music and cuisine of the people can be best experienced in these areas and the tour packages will make sure that the visitors do miss even a bit of the Nepal.

People on Nepal holidays are often spellbound by the richness of its architecture. Bronze figures and pottery offers very rich and beautiful art of the people. In a country that it mostly over 5000m above the sea level, such architectural marvels call for praises with the consideration that Nepal was mostly isolated from the rest of the world until the modern era of history and had very backward technology as compared to the western world.

Besides the temples, monasteries and the historical monuments, tourists can also opt for the trekking tours which can lasts from a few days to about a month. These tours are the best way to explore Nepal as the tourists get a chance to stay in the villages and interact with the people patiently. They will also be able to share their lifestyles.
