CULTURAL TOURISM
 

First Environmental Trekking believes that tourism should be based on the mosaic of places, traditions, art forms, celebrations and experiences that portray this nation and its people, reflecting the diversity and character of the Nepal. Whether through a visit to a museum, an art festival, a heritage area, a performance or a historic building, authentic cultural attractions educate, elevate and entertain travelers nationwide. Our guides and porters respect local culture and traditions, use home-stays, locally owned hotels and lodges or campsites as much as possible to support the local livelihood.

Nepal is a small country with different varieties. This country is famous for its unity in diversity, in language and lifestyle, caste and religious. Although there are different religions like Hindu, Buddism, Christian, Muslims etc live in Nepal, there is no discrimination among them. Every religion is prevailing with equal respect. Different religious sites can be found here like The Pashupati Nath temple the greatest deity of Hindu, Swayambhu stupa and Boddha Nath stupa of Buddism, different Mosques of Islamism and churches of Christianity etc. Nepalese are religious people. So, they have strong faith on divine Power.

In Nepal, the typical Nepali costume of women is Gunnau Cholo, Dhoti and Patuka and the Nepali costume of men is Daura Suruwal and Dhaka topi. But except it there also can be other costumes like Bakhu, Lehnga, haku patasi, kactihad etc. It also represents the culture of the specific society. The rituals and language of one society may or may not be similar to other according to the human race.

There are many typical dance in every society like kauda dance related with Magar, Ghatu dance is related with Gurung, Dhimal dance is related with Dhamal etc. like wise festival also differ from one caste and religion to other like Dashain, Tihar, teej, etc is celebrated by Chhetri, Bhraman and Hindu and Fagu, Maghi etc celebrated by Maithali, Bhojpuri and Losahar clebrated by Tamang and Sherpa. Some festivals like Dashain and Tihar are celebrated by many religions like Hindu and Buddhist but they celebrate it according to their rules and norms. While celebrating their festivals every people meet their relatives near and dear ones.
