Officially the highest country in the world, Nepal is generally known as the "roof of the world". Quite a justified nickname for this Himalayan country, where high, snow-capped mountains disappear in the clouds. Of the worldโ€™s ten highest mountains, eight are located in Nepal making it a mountaineering dream, but Nepal has much more to offer than the great breath of the Himalayas alone.

As the birthplace of the Buddha, Nepal is an important place of pilgrimage for millions of Buddhists who come from all over the world. Wherever you go, you will be greeted with wide smiles. Nepalese are among the friendliest people in the world and don't be surprised if they invite you to their home for a cup of tea. Located on top of the world, Nepal is on the verge of paradise, and those who have discovered its charms certainly feel that way.

Nepal is the only Hindu kingdom in the world. A land of great contrasts with high mountains, vast Himalayas, huge ice glaciers, small houses, ancient history, artistic monuments, refuges of exotic wildlife and different cultures. Small, but full of irresistible experience and a real mecca for anyone who loves the mountains, Nepal is a wonderful experience, full of unforgettable rural culture.

The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu, a city of as many as four million inhabitants, of whom nearly ninety percent practice Hinduism. Kathmandu is actually a fusion of three great cities: Kathmandu, Patana and Bhaktapura and because of this it has as many as three main three central squares, three old palaces and hundreds of temples throughout the city.

The most famous tribe are the Sherpas, people with the largest lung capacity, so they can climb to the great heights without any problems. Sherpas have become sought after as guides to mountaineering expeditions heading to the Himalayas.

Every destination on this magical journey brings its own story, from the capital Kathmandu to rafting on the Trisula River, to the amazing views of the Himalayan peaks.

Climatic factors are very important in deciding when to visit Nepal. October and November, when the dry season begins, are the best months of the year. The weather is pleasant, the air is clean, the visibility is perfect, and the land is lush after the monsoon.

Traveling to Nepal and pictures stay in your thoughts for a lifetime, and the country and people of Nepal will make you change your view of the world.
