A LOOK AT NEPALESE LIFE & CULTURE
Culture is embedded in the high peaks of Nepal, tradition flows with its rivers, art traverses through its valleys and religion lies in the heart of its people. Nepal, in short, is a country where art, culture and religion are a part of life of the inhabitants. People celebrate every moment with aroma, adding novelty to the traditions without affecting their essence.
ABOUT VILLAGE LIFE
IN THE MIDDLE HILLS
Life in the accessible "middle hills" of Nepal, the video opposite was recorded during the monsoon season (July) and in the dry season (November). The locations in this video all have road access and are easily accessible from Kathmandu. The Mahabharat Range of mountains lie between the ice clad peaks of the Himalayas to the north and the populous and flat Terai to the south. Elevations are between 1,500 and 2,700 metres. The southern slopes of the Mahabharat Range are steep and largely uninhabited, but the crest and northern slopes slope gently enough to support upland pastures and terraced fields. Nepal's densely populated middle hills begin along the crest, extending north through lower valleys and other "hills" until population thins out above 2,000 meters.
The culture of Nepal is a assemblage of music, architecture, religion and literature. This mountain land is multi-ethic and multi-lingual. The land is rich with unique cultural groups like Gurungs, Rais, Limbus and others.
