Known as the Kingdom of the Himalayas, this nation is also popular as Gautam Buddha's birthplace. The current population of Nepal is 30 million. However, Nepal is not just about the high Himalayas; 17% of Nepal consists of plains, and it is the bread basket of Nepal. 

Nepal is a diverse country with a rich cultural heritage. It is home to over 125 ethnic groups, each with its own unique language, customs, and traditions. The official language of Nepal is Nepali, but many other languages are also spoken. known for its stunning natural beauty, this nation is also home to a variety of wildlife, including tigers, rhinos, and elephants.

The economy of Nepal is largely based on agriculture, with rice, wheat, and maize being the main crops. Tourism is also an important industry, with visitors coming to explore the country's natural beauty and cultural heritage. Nepal has a rich history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to the Neolithic period. Throughout its history, it was under the rule of various dynasties and kingdoms before becoming a republic in 2008.

Nepal is rich in the natural landscape, as it covers 0.03% of Asia. Hilly, Terai, and Himalayan are three different regions of Nepal where various people have been living for thousands of years. The cultural values and norms are different according to their cast and region. We, Nepalese people, have an ethnic number of castes and cultures living in peace and harmony.

Nepal has hundreds of mountains (about 866), while eight are above 8000 m above sea level. Our Mystic team wants to climb the mountains and we aid and assist our guests to climb the mountains as we are professionals in this activity. We have experienced guides and climbers to support you in every step of the Trek. 

Nepalese Food is our emotion and occasion combined as we eat different types of food in different festivals, such as Kwati (a sprout soup of nine kinds of beans). Dal Bhat is our National Food.

Nepal is a backpacker’s paradise. The land is stunningly gorgeous, the people are generous and friendly, and the prices are dirt cheap. It’s no surprise that both “trekking” backpackers and “tour” backpackers alike have been flocking to the country for quite some time. But fear not; authentic experiences are still around, despite the number of tourists that visit each year.

One of the reasons for this is that the Nepalese take their tourism industry very seriously. we want everyone to have a great time and genuinely understand why people visit their amazing country.
