What to Expect in Nepal Holidays
Since Nepal opened its borders in the 1950s, this tiny mountain nation has been irresistibly alluring to travellers from all walks of life. One of its greatest attractions is that the Himalayas offer some of the best hiking in the world, including the very popular rugged trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond.
Nepal is about the best place in the world for independent travel, and offers many trekking trails where one can visit the countryside in a different way and enjoy the stoic slow pace of the people there while enjoying some of the best vistas on this planet.
Nepalese people are divided into two distinct groups, the Mongolians and the Indo-Aryans. Nepal is the only Hindu Kingdom in the World and the birthplace of Lord Buddha, the Light of Asia. Buddhists and Hindus live together in perfect harmony in Nepal, and the the spiritual and cultural meeting point of these various groups is the Kathmandu Valley.
The people Nepal speak between 92 and 123 different languages, including Nepali, Maithili, Bhojpuri, Tharu, Tamang, Newari/Nepal Bhasa, Magar, Awadhi, Thulung (Rai), Bantawa ,Limbu, and Bajjika. Nepali, written in Devanagari script, is the official national language, and English is spoken in Nepal as a second language.
Nepal has a rich and unique cultural history that has evolved over many centuries. It encompasses all the diversity of Nepal’s many ethnic and cultural groups and manifests in art, craft, language, folklore, dance, music, literature, philosophy, festivals, religion, in celebrations and in their cuisine.
Nepali cuisine depicts both the cultural and geographical diversities of the region and includes a variety of culinary delights.
Dal-bhat-tarkari is a lentil soup that is eaten throughout the country; it is very spicy and is usually served over rice or another grain, with vegetable curry. This dish is often accompanied by small amounts of an extremely spicy pickle known as achaar, which serves as a condiment.
Some foods are a combination of Chinese/ Tibetan and Indian cuisine, such as the momo Tibetian dumplings with Nepali spices. They are very important in the Newa cuisine and used to be filled with beef, but can now be found with chicken, vegetarian or goat fillings too.
Both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes are made, although the majority of Hindu and Jain Rajasthanis are vegetarian. Jains do not eat after sundown, and they do not use garlic or onions in their food.
