Our Nepal program will help you discover the depth and complex of the Kingdom of Nepal. For Nepal, Mt. Everest is only the proverbial "tip of the ice berg." There is much more to be awed by. For starters, within 100 miles of its snowy mountain peaks are teeming jungles with countless ecological variations in between. Nepal is also distinctive for the friendliness of its people and the richness of its culture. The people are as variable and intriguing as the geography, offering an unfolding tapestry of ethnic groups, such as Newars, Tharus and Sherpas each with its own distinct language, customs, architecture and dress. While Hinduism is the official religion and practiced by the majority, many people throughout the country are Buddhists. The two religions have co-existed in harmony throughout NepalÔøΩs history. In fact, Hinduism and Buddhism are so intertwined that their temples sometimes share the same location and rites of both faiths may be practiced within a single family. Program participants have opportunities to see the royal capital city of Kathmandu, to meet indigenous people and explore a variety of unique ecological zones, including Royal Chitwan National Park. We will visit local markets, temples and development projects and to enjoy the extraordinary friendliness of the people and inspirational beauty of the country.
