What if we call Nepal is the land of the world's best cultural heritage? Nepal has all those kind of vibrant cultural events which none of the worlds has it. Normally the world judge Political and economic growth for the cultural heritage which is complete doesn't make any sense. Let's keep the Unique ancient culture in one place and the Political geography in another hand.

Nepal looks small on geography because of two giant apples next to us and forgetting the diamond in between those Apples. It's a true fact that some big countries were not even listed on the global map while Nepal was celebrating the unique kind of cultural events. Sounds like ego on these words but the true and bitter fact is Nepalese corrupt leadership didn't understand the value of our history. 

I was googling about the world's best culture and heritage but sadly I didn't see Nepal cultural part just the UNESCO world heritage sites. Every single day I am growing with some different kinds of events and cultural celebrations but not seeing the richest cultural heritage country is on the list. Maybe the lack of information or we don't have that big house media which can show the world of our ancient cultural movements. In another hand, we tourism-related people didn't understand the value of our culture and just showing MOUNTAINS, HIMALAYAS, EVEREST.


Explore Nepal from different levels of thinking and we Nepalese need to start from ourselves first. Anywhere in the world has this sheer diversity with hundreds of different cultures? Isn't Nepal is vibrant with Live Traditional Music, Food, Cheering, colors, and lifestyles. From the lower land 70m to 5500M we have hundreds of different cultural events, people, lifestyle, food, ethnic groups, and still, we are saying #Mountains #Trekking? 

We are forgetting to show the world that Nepal is the land of Buddha, Sadhus which suppose to be spiritual and wellness. Buddhism was not even in Tibet back in those  (before 5th centuries ) days but see how the world is moving and the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. I am not trying to show some other down but we are not putting effort to show our history to the world. Almost all the travel and trekking websites showing Everest Base Camp Trek, Langtang trek, Annapurna Treks but what about those who want to explore the unique cultures? what about for those who can't even walk an inch?  The Mountains are everywhere in Nepal which can be seen from the cities or from the hillside but we forget to mix the culture trips. 

Bhaktapur Festival

Start Roaring to the world Nepal is not just the Mountains but a mini pack of the globe itself with all those uniqueness. We don't have artificial steel towers, waterfalls, skylines but we have god-gifted natural resources. If you visit Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, and other cities where you can see small kids cheering, running barefoot not just for the festivals but to accept and to preserve it. All the events have some deep connection with the spiritual process of life which we all can see in Nepal. Nepal is an open museum for the world to experience from their open eyes and they can take a deep breath for not having with them. 

Yoga is the most popular these days in different ways such as Naked, Wine, Beach, Goat, and many others way but Hello world Sadhus didn't practice that way. Nepal and the Himalayas, hundreds of years old caves, Hills were the Home of Yoga, Meditation for sadhus but see how the Yoga ruined. Just sitting on the lap of the Mountains itself is an Asana but we didn't have the guts to say the world... Don't need to learn the form of yoga or to join the Yoga classes to heal but reaching those spiritual places can heal itself, this the magic of Nepal.

All I wanted to say is Nepal is more than Mountains and the Himalayas, Trekking, Rafting but more than that we are rich in our cultural heritage.
