RESPECT CULTURE AND PEOPLEEvery nation has its own national culture, and it has specific characteristics and cultural history and traditions. Nepalese culture is remarkably different from western cultures. Nepalese loves to show that culture and share the experience with the tourists. We expect our clients to have exposure to Nepali culture and experience it. Meeting and interacting with the local people and experiencing cultures are often the most memorable highlights of a trip to Nepal. Deep into the culturally conscious activities, such as visiting villages, home-stay, trying local cuisine, and learning about traditional crafts, learning greetings in native languages makes your holidays immortal.
