Nepal is popular for its scenic natural beauty and unique cultural impressions. Nepal is also known by the highest Mount Everest on the Earth having an altitude of 8,848 meters. Above all, Kathmandu is the centre of attraction for its lively culture. There are seven World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu only. Ancient palaces and temples are the major highlights of the capital city Kathmandu. Despite her wonderful characters, Nepal remained in shadow due to some political reasons and the devastating earthquake of 2015. But everything has become normal now and the beauty of this small Himalayan country is dazzling even more.

Question arises what to do in Nepal then? Apart from Kathmandu’s cultural delights, trekking to the Himalayas is truly a reward at this time of the year.

Dashain and Tihar are the great festivals of Hindus that occur in autumn.
