We are located on the edge of the Durbar Square in Baktapur. Directly in front of us is the Pashupatinath Temple and right next to it the Vatsala Durga temple. Between the two temples in the background is the Shiva temple and the Krishna temple to recognize. The striking building behind us is the Shiva Guest House.
Home to Mt. Everest and a wide range of ethnic groups speaking almost 100 languages and dialects, Nepal is a study in diversity. Climate ranges from sub-tropic to arctic, offering an unparalleled variety of ecosystems – humid plains, tropical jungles, forested hills, frozen valleys, and of course the Himalayas. Hinduism is the major religion although Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, was born in the south of the country and Buddhism has a strong tradition in Nepal as well.
