Nepal is one of the friendliest nations on earth. On the roof of the world, the scenic beauty quite literally takes your breath away, with nearly 250 peaks, including Mount Everest; the world’s highest at 8848m. But Nepal is also a deeply spiritual and culturally diverse country steeped in a fascinating history and is a spiritual place of pilgrimage for many worshippers.
 
Over 2500 years ago Nepal’s spiritualisation commenced when Prince Siddharta Gautama renounced his claim to royal power and devoted his life to meditation and attained enlightenment as Buddha. Today, Buddhists are mainly found close to Tibet, where the landscape conceals sacred shines. Hinduism is the most practised religion in the country, although most Nepalese temples serve both Buddhist and Hindu worshippers.  
 
Nepal has also become ever more popular with adventure travellers and outdoors enthusiasts looking to do everything from trekking in the foothills of the Everest or Annapurna regions to white-water rafting, and from observing wildlife to taking part in religious ceremonies. This rise in demand of tourism has fuelled the growth of sprawling cities such as Kathmandu and Pokhara, and there has been an explosion of new hotels and restaurants opening up to serve this new thriving audience. And with the increasing popularity, job prospects, and opportunities in the local communities has improved – not to mention the education and health improvements of this desperately poor nation.
 
Outside of the main cities, Chitwan National Park provides a haven for Wildlife observation. Here visitors can search for the native species including the Royal Bengal Tiger, the one-horned Indian rhino, and the Indian elephant.
 
The capital Kathmandu is the main driver of modernity and social change in Nepal. Politically, Nepal has undergone massive transformation in recent years, having overcome its war with rebel Maoists and shifted from a monarchy to a democratic republic in 2008. But turmoil has continued, and in 2015, a different force came into play when Nepal was hit by a massive earthquake, which killed thousands of locals and tourists. Thousands were left homeless and Nepal reached out to the rest of the world to ask for help to assist with the rebuilding of this intricate country.
