WHERE: IN NEPAL
Nepal, as it is known, is nestled between Tibet and India. The majority of its territory is covered by mountains (there are some “eight thousands “ ) and is one of the poorest countries in the world. It is very rich in history and culture indeed. It is the meeting point of two old and important cultures: the Tibetan culture and the Indian one. These two cultures with its isolation, (the consequence of geographic and political factors), have helped to make Nepal a wonderful country.
The region of Solu Khumbu is not far from Mount Everest, in the south direction. It is not touched by tourists and trekkers directed to the Everest National park (they fly directly to Lukla). The Economy of the Solu Kumbu region is based on a poor agriculture and on the salary of the people working in foreign countries. The population is mainly Sherpa, but there are some other ethnic groups such as Ray, Gurung, etc. All ethnical groups live together in harmony.
