Why trek in Nepal?
Surrounded from all the four sides with the contrasting lands and resting on the rocky bed of the magnificent Himalayas along with the portions of Indo-Gigantic Plains is a heartland country of the South Asia Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. How the nation came about to be called as “Nepal” has various versions. Some say its a Sanskritization of the local Prakrit term “Newar” when others believe that it’s a colloquial arising from the modification of various alphabets. Anyways, most of the historians believe that when the first time the place was documented and said to be as “Nepal” has been in the Vedic Period of Indian history. The people of Nepal or Nepalese believe that a protector, teacher and the sage named Nemi had come to the ravines of Kathmandu and from then the name of the region was established as, “Ne-pal” where Ne is from the sage’s name and Pal comes from the word “Pala”, which means protection in the ancient language of Pali.
Nepal has not only its own long chronicles but a great deal of its existing history has also been discovered and recovered because of its neighboring nations, Sikkim, China, Bangladesh and especially India. The historians were able to find and further proof the presence of Neolithic in the valley of Kathmandu. Studying the various pieces of evidence, like stone inscriptions from the valley of Kathmandu and the written recorded texts from the late Vedic period, various archaeologists, have found that Nepal was a prominent trader of blankets and has remained a border country of India from the last eleven thousand years of the human history. Various ancient texts from the several surrounding and far away kingdoms have written in particular about the elegance and prestige of Nepal.
Amongst the first controllers of Nepal were Kiratas, and Gopal Bansal is often said to be as the valley’s first resident. The Shakya clan and it’s very famous revered prince Shakya, who later founded Buddhism was Gautam Buddha. The state has later come under the territory of Muryans of Northern India and then Guptas, during the 4th century. Xuanzang, a Chinese priest, has turned out to be a major contributor for the present-day known rich and detailed records of Nepal. Other dynasties were of Licchavi which declined by the eighth century and Newar or Thakuri under the ruler Raghav Dev. Then during the middle era, Malla (meaning wrestler) rulers, entered and won the state. By the end of the fourteenth century, the nation unified and was divided between three nations of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Patan. In the 1850s, a Gorkha emperor, Prithvi Shah, settled the borders for the present day Nepal, completely vanishing the borders from the kingdoms in mountains, winning the Kathmandu area in 1769 and also Terai region later. There were further wars with Chinese, Tibet rulers, and the Britishers. There were internal conspiracies too after which the rule of ruthless Rana dynasty started. Under Rana rule, Nepal and the UK signed the agreement of friendship. After a lot of bloodsheds, civil wars, communist rule, democratic movements, and overthrow; after two more rulers, finally in 2008 Nepal got its federal republic and its constitution was declared in the recent year of 2015. After such a long history, presently, the nation’s one of the major source for economic growth has become tourism, which also helps it to connect to the world.
Physiographically, Nepal is divided un Himal, Pahad and Terai spread from east to west and crossing the brooks starting from north to south. Terai or lower parts of the nation at South are known as northern Indo-Gangetic Plains, with Churia ranges marking its ends. These hill ranges are adorned with the extremely beautiful Narayani, Karnali and Kosi rivers, with the sultry and subtropical climatic conditions. Internal valleys of these plains are valleys of Tarai, which are actually northern valleys of foothills of Indo-Gigantic region. Pahad ranges are more deserted-rocky-rough belt and rise till 13,000 ft, thus experiencing the weather of alpine above and around 3,900 ft, the subtropical climate. The Lower Himalayan Belt have usually the subtropical ravines and ridges. In the snowy terrains, population density remains relatively low. Himal ceases the Greater Himalayan Belt and somehow makes the northern natural border of Nepal. Embellished with the elevations towering above 29,000 ft, the region is highly gusty, snowy, glaciated and is the reason why the Nepal tourism lists the area as one of the most adventurous trekking zones in the world. The Himat ranges connect with the borders of China and are crowned with the toughest, famous peak, the Mount Everest which is at 29,029 ft and so, is one of the ultimate excursions.
