Useful Information

Tradition & Culture

Believe it or not, there is more to Nepal than the highest mountain peaks, the deepest river gorges and the highest plateaus! Nepal’s natural diversity resembles its peoples’ diversity. Nepal is landlocked in the Himalayas, confined between neighbouring giants China and India, which results in a multi-ethnic and multi-spiritual group of people. Nepal has over 123 different ethnic groups – each one with its own unique language, culture and traditions. 90% of the indigenous languages are still spoken today amongst their tribes!

Bhutan is a Buddhist country and people often refer to it as the last stronghold of Vajrayana Buddhism. The Bhutanese constitution guarantees freedom of religion and citizens and visitors are free to practice any form of worship so long as it does not impinge on the rights of others. Christianity, Hinduism and Islam are also present in the country.The Bhutanese are a fun-loving and social community that enjoys weddings, religious holidays and other events as the perfect opportunities to gather with friends and family.
