Mention Nepal, and most people will conjure up images of the Himalaya. Indeed eight of the worlds 10 tallest peaks are here. This country however is distinguished not only for its mountains, but for its rich cultural heritage, exotic monuments and protected wildlife, which are regularly reflected in the country's languages, architecture and the valued biodiversity.

Nestled in between Tibet of the Peoples Republic of China in the North and India on the other three sides, Nepal is the confluence of two great world religions-Buddhism and Hinduism. It is in this sacred land where Lord Gautama Buddha was born more then 2,500 yearsago and it's the birth place of Sita, consort of Lord Rama.
