THE ROOF OF THE WORLD
Nepal, with its irregularly shaped flag and ineffable charisma, is a land of extremes. To the north are the Himalayas, the mighty peaks of old, Earth's roof, and simply the greatest mountain range on this planet. Words cannot do these granitic masterpieces justice. It must be experienced. Trekking side by side strangers turned to friends is one such way, slowly and steeply gaining elevation, fueled by tea and dal bhat.
At the heart of the nation lies the Kathmandu Valley filled with ancient wonders and living traditions. Palace squares, towering temples and utmost devotion is observed around every weaving corner. The southern borders are filled with swampy jungles of lurking animals as well as the birthplace of Buddha. Whatever angle you tackle this nation, a sense of awe will fill you as you explore the roof of the world.
