Lot’s of places have many flashy materialistic things to try and get attention, but Nepal doesn’t need any of it. It’s not a place  that is just about the new trends it’s somewhere that can be undeniably interesting just by being what it is. Even though it’s a small country it’s still one of the most fascinating. Because it’s an easy place to get around, has an infinitely fascinating culture and has different points of interest, Nepal is one of the places I love.

 

To start, Nepal is a very easy place to get around. While I was in Kathmandu, more specifically in Jawalakhel, I was a short walk away from shops where I could get anything I needed and different members of my family who lived in the area. I adapted quickly and easily found places that I liked going. For example, my family and I would go from my Uncle’s house to my Aunt’s shop that was just down the street and then to my cousin's house that was a short walk away. Everything was so close and easily accessible for me ,even though I hadn’t spent much time there. Then there was Bhaisepati, where again many members of my family were in a close area so I could always visit them. It was just always nice to know that when I was in these areas I could find my way around. 

 

 

Next, Nepal has an incredible culture and history that I always found extremely fascinating. For example, Lumbini, Nepal was the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha. The founder of Nepal’s second largest religion Buddhism. Also, in Nepal, most people speak Nepali, a language derived from Sanskrit. And on top of that, the culture in Nepal has many symbols from Hindu and Buddhist origins which go back in Nepal more than two millennia. An example of this is the Hindu swastika and Siva’s Trident. Another part of Nepali culture that it has a rich history in  the arts. The literature dates back only to the nineteenth century with Bhanubhakta Acharya's piece of the Hindu epic, Ramayana that is still told. A lot of Nepal’s graphic art is religious. Many Newari artist creates statues of both Hindu and Buddhist leaders as well as carefully painted tangkas that represent Buddhist cosmology.

 

Another part of the culture is the festivals like Dashain and Tihar. Dashain is the longest and most auspicious holiday in the Nepali calendar, it is not only celebrated in Nepal but by many Nepali communities in America. Tihar often known as Diwali is also celebrated in Nepal. In general, Tihar a festival of lights and many make designs on the floor out of rice, colored sand, or flower petals called rangoli. These are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for Goddesses and Gods. All of this shows Nepal’s vast culture and history that adds to why it’s an amazing place.

 

Lastly, Nepal has lots of different destinations  of interest that add to its appeal. A lot of these places have a lot of historical and religious meaning to them, such as Boudhanath, a stupa in Kathmandu that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also in Kathmandu, is Durbar Square which is in front of an ancient royal palace of the old Kathmandu Kingdom. This is one of the three Durbar Squares and another UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These are two of the most historical places that hold a lot of importance in Nepal’s culture. These are all places that add to why Nepal is an amazing place. Then there is the place that Nepal is the most known for, Mount Everest. It stands at 29,029 feet (8,848 meters) it is the world’s tallest mountain. These are some of the most interesting places in Nepal that add to it’s appeal.

 

So it’s not about how glamorous a place is it’s about how much it has to offer. That’s what makes it a place to love and Nepal has so much to offer. Because of the points of interest, how easy it is to get around, and the rich history and culture, Nepal is a place I love.
