NEPAL IS A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. MOUNT EVEREST LIES IN NEPAL. NEPAL IS THE HOME OF THE HIMALAYAN CULTURE. This is what our travel and trek businesses tell their international clients. Or at least this is what we brag about our wicked nation-thanks to our biases- while answering foreigners' questions on Quora and Reddit.
