Nepal is surrounded by the world's highest mountain - the Himalaya to the north, and the Mahabharata range to the south, the once forbidden Kathmandu Valley has long intrigued intrepid travelers. The Himalayan kingdom - Nepal has the richest and most diverse culture landscapes anywhere. Nepal is one of the most peaceful multi-religious countries in the world. Here, we find more than 70 ethnic groups with their own religious cultures, languages and lifestyles.
Despite its remoteness, the Valley situated between Tibet and India has been an age-old center of culture, trade and learning, interfacing between the two great cultures of Aryan India (Whose history is recorded in its myths such as The Ramayana and Mahabharata) and that of the Tibeto Mongolians.
The valley itself consists of three distinct cities, Kantipur (Kathmandu), Lalitpur (Patan) and Bhaktapur. Each of these unique medieval cities vies with the other in the distinctive character of its architecture, colorful festivities, and the warm hospitality of its inhabitants. These cities pack a concentration of religious monuments unequalled in the world. Nepal has many remarkable religious places, which reflects the long history of Nepali art and architecture.
The small area of Nepal holds a considerably high number of places recognized by UNESCO as "World Heritage Sites". There are altogether ten World Heritage Sites in Nepal. Seven World heritages sites located in the Kathmandu valley are found within radius of 20 kms. Swoyambhunath, Bouddhanath, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changunarayan, Pashupatinath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square and Lumbini are placed in Cultural World Heritage Sites. While Chitwan National Park and Sagarmatha National Park are placed in Natural World Heritage Sites.
Nepal's first and most famous national park is situated in the Chitwan Doon or the lowlands of the Inner Terai. This ecologically diverse area is the last remaining home in Nepal for more than 300 of the endangered Asian one-horned rhinoceros and harbors one of the largest populations of the elusive and rare Bengal tiger. Besides rhino and tiger, Chitwan also supports a great variety of flora and fauna.
