Nepal is a country rich in biodiversity, water resources, mountains, hills, religious and cultural heritages etc. Nepal is therefore one of the best destinations for adventure tours and best travel holidays in the world. We have unique geographical position, best landscapes and the beautiful natural structures. Not only the mountains and the hills, Nepal also carries a unique history of culture, civilization, tradition and heritages. Nepal is a Hindu country but we also have Buddhists, Christians and Muslims as the part of our country thus having the special cultural sites for all the religions residing here.
Although the majority of Nepalese belong to Hindu Society, both Buddhism and Hinduism have blended together and they co-exist in the most unique way possible. In the Kathmandu valley itself there are any UNESC religious sites, temples, monasteries, Stupas and what not! Not only in Kathmandu but places like Pokhara, Lumbini, Muktinath, Gasaikunda all holds the best importance due to the religious and cultural meaning the places and the sites have to offer.
