Nepal is a diverse country with rich history, assorted landscapes, and home to multiple religions, race, tribes, and culture. In an audible sense, the country is a melting pot of many languages and ethnicity. So if you are going to Nepal, please travel as a traveller, not as a tourist.
Press your hands together and say Namaste to watch the people of Nepal return your gesture with some of the largest most welcoming smiles in the world. It may seem cliche but Nepal's people are some of the most friendly you will ever encounter. Namaste is a common form of greeting each other in the Nepali society which is a Sanskrit word that equates to "the divine in me bows to the divine in you".
Records states, there are 101 ethnic groups and 92, individual, languages spoken every day in this blissful country situated between China in the north, and India in the south. In such delighted country, one may expect to meet many friendly inhabitants at every turn and corner. Nepali people are famous for their friendly nature, genuine hospitality, resilience, and their smile faces.
And, people of Nepal, interestingly, ask "Have you had your tea?" or "Have you had your lunch?" instead of asking "How are you?". However, the primary intention is to know about your health. So, if you honestly answer that you haven't, then there is a high probability that you'll get invited to their place in the very next conversation.
Though there are numerous ethnicity living under the same roof, people of Nepal have always admired each other's culture and tradition, which contributes to the religious and cultural harmony in the country since centuries.
Perhaps, this is the major reason, why a tourist cannot remain tourist for a longer period. Once a tourist begins to know the place and its people, he is no longer a stranger - he is a valued guest, and guests are considered Gods here.
