Heaven is a myth

Nepal is real

Here you see a monastery

And there, you find a temple


A land of beauty

Where one goes to unwind

To sit and meditate

And de-stress their mind.


Roads may be narrow

But their hearts are quite big

Hair is so lustrous

They don’t need a wig


Houses are colourful

Orange, red and pink

The paths are steep and winding

But are a sure link..


The Nepalis are an industrious race

They are full of charm and grace

Very respectful when face to face

Though a bit laid back, in many ways..


Most people always respond with a smile

And are willing to go the extra mile

Their land is beautiful and serene

It’s truly worthy of being seen

    mass tourism and pollution .

    • Doggerel Dave

      Lorenz – please write on mass tourism: I’d quite possibly back you all the way.

      • NafisaSB

        mass tourism yes- because that is their main source of income..
        pollution - living in a place like mumbai, nepal feels like a breath of fresh air; you have to go to Delhi to know what pollution really is.

        During a previous hospital stay (not my last) I, a public patient was popped into a private hospital, (not to go into the intricacies of the Australian health system, but the surgeon had pull).
        The nursing staff were 99% Nepalese. Really caring sharing young women. I had a great time, or at least as great as one can have as a surgical patient. Did wonder, beyond my situation though, what made so many come halfway round the world…..

          Nepalese are a basically hospitable race, and i have found more in the hospitality sector than in any other. the money that they earn is used to send back home, to construct their own small abode. some are in the valley, some on the hills, they are a hardy race who can climb peaks easily because of the terrain they are accustomed to [which we are not, and with our arthritis, avoid]
          so yes - they are a caring and sharing race who will go the extra mile to ensure your comfort.
          would you believe that the resort we stayed in gave us a farewell thank you cake, and sang for us, on the day we left. that I believe is true hospitality from the heart - we were definitely impressed
