HIMALAYA – the name derived from Sanskrit word, “Him” means snow and “Himalaya” means abide; thus referring to the abode of snow.

It is not just the height that gives the Himalayas their grandeur but it is also the tremendous contrast with the deep valleys that wind between the peaks. That is why, Nepal with only 1,47,181 Sq Kms land area wears physically a contrasting look with diversified attractions of wild life in deep forest of south in tropical feature to the unique vegetation of temperature and arctic feature in the high north.
