1. Beautiful Country

Small in size but it is rich in its aesthetic beauty; Nepal is located in the Himalayas. The scenes are so mesmerizing and breath-taking. If traveling by airplane, peeping down from the window you get to see the whole terrain is hilly and mountainous. The long stretch of Himalayan range can be seen from so high above the sea level as if it is running parallel to us. The view is worth watching.
