Nestled cozily between the Himalayan trail and India, Nepal is the place to quench your adrenaline rush for outdoor treks and picturesque views. Here are some interesting facts on Nepal:

The world’s most dangerous airport is the Lukla Airport in Nepal. The Lukla Airport in Nepal serves as the main airport for those visiting Mt. Everest. Part of what makes this airport so difficult to land in is how it is nestled in between mountains and the incredibly short length of the runway.

There are about 14 peaks in the world that are more than 8000 m above sea level in the world. Out of these 14 peaks, Nepal is home to 9 of them. This makes Nepal the ultimate goal of mountain lovers. 

Nepal’s unique treasure – Kumari or Kumari Devi or living goddess – is the tradition of worshipping young pre-pubescent girls as manifestations of the divine female energy or devi in Hindu religious traditions. To witness this one of a kind festival, you must visit Nepal in September when the Kumari Jatra is held.



There are about 12 varieties of momos. If you are in Nepal then you have to taste the jhol momo’s. Jhol means liquid, and jhol momos are momos that are drowned in a bowl full of sauce called jhol achar. 

The Nepali calendar is approximately 56 years and 8 months ahead of the English calendar known as Gregorian calendar. The new year starts from the middle of April.
