Nepal is the land where Gautama Buddha, 'The Enlightened One', was born - Buddha, the symbol of peace; it is also the country in which Sita, the wife of Lord Rama was born. Thus, the country is of the utmost religious significance for two of the world's most enduring religions – Hinduism and Buddhism. Evidence of these two predominant faiths are omnipresent in the variety of gods and goddesses, numerous temples, stupas and monasteries that literally pepper the region and reflect the deep spiritual beliefs of the people. Consequently, it is a popular destination for Hindu and Buddhist devotees, and pilgrims from all over the world flock to Nepal in droves. Apart from its religious attractions, Nepal is one of the most exciting destinations for tourists. Given its intriguing history, where myth is often indistinguishable from fact, fascinating art, distinctive and varied architecture, vast diversity of peoples and cultures, innumerable languages and traditions, the country is bound to enthrall anyone. The panoramic mountain scenery, diversity of spectacular landscapes and incredible wildlife all contribute to making a visit to this land of fairy tale and fable a truly enchanting and memorable one for the world traveller. These attractions also provide the casual sightseer, the research scholar and the adventure seeker with a bewildering array of things to see and do. Most visitors find their allotted time insufficient to experience the entire spectrum and return again and yet again. Such is the magnetism of this charismatic country.
The Kathmandu Valley is a representation in miniature of the nation as a whole. Almost all of the attractions the country has to offer are available there either for viewing and participation, albeit on a smaller scale: views of magisterial mountains; botanical gardens; mini-game reserves; scores of temples, including Pashupatinath; Boudhanath stupa; mediaeval style villages; ancient wood and stone carvings; adventure sports.
