There are few other places in the world with such a harmonious blend of cultures as Nepal and we welcome you to discover the fascinating mix of Nepal culture.
Gurung, Rai Magar, Tamang tribes
Before the unification of the modern Nepal, Gurung, Rai, Magar, Tamang had their independent countries, and still have their independent culture, manner of practicing religion, language, cuisine, music and dance, and their architectural settlement is distinct to each other.
Newar, Chhetri, Brahmin tribes
Newars, being indigenous the Kathmandu Valley, are rich in metal works, arts, crafts, and building castles and temples. Chettries and Brahmins are Hindus by religions and historians state they are ancient settlers of Karnali region of Nepal.
And Tharu tribes too, have distinctive cultures and lifestyle, though their social life is influenced by Aryan culture and Hindu religion.
Photography & Filming
Filming is always an excellent experience in Nepal as it offers spectacular range of locations with its natural, architectural and cultural richness for everyone. The scenery is spectacular, with phenomenal mountain ranges and remote villages, culturist nomadic people, as well as many ancient and beautiful monasteries. Diversified range of locations and themes are available in Nepal for filming including hill stations and valleys, wildlife parks, monuments, rural areas, cultural events like fairs and festivals or Nepali weddings.
The three main Nepal trekking areas and therefore the most easily accessible are the Everest, Langtang and the Annapurna regions. Annapurna and Langtang have a slight advantage in so much that they can be reached via road connections. Great Himalaya Trails has extensive information on other trekking regions, which are accessible by domestic flights, such as Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Dolpo, and the Far West. Several days of trekking is required to reach the higher mountain areas from the local centers of population and administration.
