      Extra Reading for Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan 

      Learn a bit about Nepal- the Country of Mount Everest

      If you are visiting Nepal for the first time you may be wondering what to see and expect in your trip. So many things of interest for a traveler, such a spectacular topography, such a richness of culture, tradition and wealth of flora and fauna all packed in this tiny and beautiful country, a very rare combination anywhere. 
      The Capital Kathmandu together with the towns of Patan and Bhaktapur are medieval cities packed with hundreds of masterpiece Buddhist Stupas and Hindu Temples, some dating back even the second and fifth centuries. It is only in Kathmandu that seven UNESCO-declared world heritage sites lie in a periphery of just thirty kilometers. The medieval sights and sounds are so different but so friendly to take you in its spell.
      Nepal has such a topographical contrast that elevation ranges from 70 meters above sea level in Jhapa (430km east from Kathmandu) to the world’s highest mountain, Everest 8848m above sea level. This unique variation has given Nepal a varied ecosystem, both thick tropical and alpine forest swarmed with diverse wildlife, stunning peaks of the world, frozen lakes and valleys, deep gorges, mysterious caves, furious Himalayan rivers running down the hills and cool and calm lakes. In such a small country you can see tropical animals like wild elephants, one-horned rhinoceros, Tigers and also alpine animals like snow leopards, Himalayan Thar, etc...  
      This country is the home to two percent of all flowering plants in the world, eight percent (848 species) of the total birds of the world (more birds than in the USA and Canada combined), 11 of 15 butterflies’ families found in the world (500 species), 600 indigenous plant families and more than 300 species of orchid species and a population of 30 million people with about 60 ethnic groups speaking 70 different languages is a place with unique cultures, exotic traditions, and festivals, unique art and architectures and above all very friendly people, all very alluring to the visitors. 
      Being the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha, founder of Buddhism, Lumbini is southern Nepal is visited by Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. The great number of Tibetan refugees with their Lamas, Rinpoche, and Stupas make Nepal a place ideal for those interested in Tibetan Buddhism. Few people know that original Tibetan culture survives in remote and exotic Nepali villages bordering with Tibet, rather than in Tibet itself. Most of these villages can be visited in one or the other treks to the Himalayas.

      Tibet - The Roof of the World

      Tibet is located in the center of Asia, with an area of 2.5 million square kilometers. The earth's highest mountains, a vast arid plateau, and great river valleys make up the physical homeland of 10 million Tibetans. It has an average altitude of 13,000 feet above sea level.
      A land of ancient Buddhist culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries and centuries-old caravan trails, Tibet is a destination out of the ordinary. It is the place of ambiguity and mystery, and is renowned as the roof of the world. Long considered as the forbidden kingdom, Tibet’s mystical powers draw intrepid travelers from all over the world.  For many years Tibet remained shut off to the world, slowly travel routes are being opened up and travel restrictions are relaxed to allow travelers to experience this mystical place. 
      Tibet is situated on the biggest and highest plateau in the world. It melts down into the harsh Chinese interior in the north and is hemmed by in the Himalayan mountain range in the south. The eastern plateau blends with the dense forest and jungles marching up from southeast Asia. Most people conjure up images of Tibet as being a frozen and barren place but in fact, it is a diverse environment that is home to a surprising variety of animals, plant life and an agriculturally intricate and religious-driven race of people.
      Lhasa is the capital city of Tibet (elevation 3,650m) a surprisingly large and well-developed city. One can spend many days in Lhasa exploring its sites, the Potala Palace, the summer palace, its many Monasteries and other beautiful places. A road journey through Tibet from Nepal offers spectacular views of the Himalayas, as first, you approach them, then pass through them, then leave them in your rearview mirror. The place abounds with High Mountain passes, ancient monasteries, exotic cities, hidden valleys, extraordinarily enchanting local people and their ancient and gentle culture.  A road trip by jeep, bus or bicycle through Tibet is an unforgettable and at times mesmerizing journey. You should take the chance to visit this place while it still exists.
      Tibet’s a powerful place to travel, there are so much nobleness and grace about the Tibetan people, their religion and there simplistic way of life. It can sometimes be emotionally depressing when one sees how fast the Chinese are changing and taking over this incredible place. If you want to feel empowered by the magic of Tibet, just rise at 5 am in the freezing cold morning and wander down to the central square and allow yourself to be swept away in the mass of fur-clad, prayer wheel bearing, chanting Tibetans, its such a moment as fog and incense disorientates your senses, the harmonious deep throated chanting lulls your mind to a different place. Nothing compares to the first time you see yaks galloping across the high pasture, with burly nomads watching their progress. 
      There are those moments as you ponder life sitting on the frozen roadside, pray flags snapping in the wind and pilgrims painstaking prostrating their way past you.  Tibet is full of pictures and moments that will live with you forever. The air is always crisp and dry and heavy with the scent of yak butter and burning candles. This place emanates a sense of peace and wellness. This magical kingdom is a must on any traveler's list. It’s a truly amazing place where you can loose yourself and find yourself at the same time.

      Bhutan is a small and beautiful destination where the time stands still, nature and religion combine and maintains the tiny Buddhist kingdom as the last Shangri-La. Sandwiched between Tibet and India, Bhutan is the pearl of the Himalayas. Virgin peaks rise up to 25,000 ft to the north of the kingdom and beneath steep glacial walls, alpine highlands fall to misty forests. Mountain streams cut through gorges on their way down to warmer valleys and wide marshes in the heart of the kingdom. 
      One distinct landscape drops to the next before finally descending to the jungle and grasslands of the southern plains. To those people who have accustomed to this domain of extremes and have always led their life with the principles of Mahayana Buddhism, Bhutan is a paradise on earth where respect for life, in all its many incarnations, endures like the land itself.
