Nepal is home to the Annapurna Region which is known for having some of the world’s best trekking routes. The Annapurna Region compiles the wettest, driest, and windiest places. Seven of the world’s highest peaks are situated there. All of the peaks reach over 20,000 ft. Nepal is the only country in the world where the elevation will change from 60 meters to over 8,000 meters above sea level.
The various lakes are known not only for their outstanding beauty but also for their spiritual importance. There are over 200 lakes with glacier origin. Nepal has been regarded as a sacred place for hundreds of years. The tranquillity of the area will have a positive effect on anyone that is able to experience it. The people, the buildings, and the land are all symbols of serenity.
Over 35 different ethnic groups call Nepal home. This means there are multiple religions, languages, musical influence, and foods. Although Nepalese dishes do result from heavy South Asian influences like China and India, the food is usually healthier with more lean meats and veggies. Other common ingredients include lentils, tomatoes, cumin, potatoes, yogurt, and garlic.
