Simple Guide to Nepal: Customs and Etiquette (Simple Guides)

Simple Guide to Nepal: Customs and Etiquette (Simple Guides) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new title is essential reading for all visitors to the 'thrones of the gods' (the Himalayas) and the way of life practised by a wide variety of ethnic groups involving more than 30 different languages.

Synopsis:

In the past decade, Nepal has drawn an increasing number of Western visitors for its sheer natural beauty, its extraordinary cultural history, its warm and courteous people, and its spectacular vistas — offered up by nothing less than the Himalayas (known locally, and justifiably, as the "thrones of the gods"). Celebrated as the last Hindu kingdom and birthplace of the Buddha, Nepal is as bewildering as it is enticing — home to a dizzying number of ethnic groups (including the famous Sherpas) speaking more than 30 different languages. For travelers who might otherwise feel daunted, this concise guide lifts the veil on Nepal's culture and mores, with essential advice on social occasions, business etiquette, getting out and about, the natural environment, the people and their language, and more. Also included is an invaluable list of words and phrases.
