Nepal culture is a consequence of blending of influences from its neighboring countries and the indigenous ethnicity over a period of centuries. It is a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual culture constituting some of the unique groups such as Ahir, Tharu, Yadav, and Newars. In fact, it would not be incorrect to say that in this landlocked country every aspect of life, clothing, and even occupations are guided by the norms of the culture.
Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 1300m from the sea level and is in fact the valley surrounded by the beautiful rolling green hills and the shimmering snow peaks to the north of it. On a clear day, you can see the crystal clear snow peaks of the Himalayan mountains. You cannot miss the main cities of Kathmandu & Patan once the petty kingdoms in the history, now merging into a common urban sprawl. A little further to the east is the valley’s third major city, Bhaktapur.
