Nepal is a diverse country in terms of cultural and natural having a plethora of religious activities according to the different ethnic groups.

However, some foreigners are trying to promote their religion and forced to become their followers, such personalities will be punished by the government. For instance, Two Korean people are now behind bars because they walked into every door and asking for joining their religion by promoting and giving some sort of offers. 

Respect Every religion

Sherpa people are known as the guardians of the Himalayas. They have lots of the Mantras written over the large stones termed as Manistones and monasteries on the way. Mani stones (Stones covered with Mantras ), Small monasteries, Buddhist monuments are the best example of them. If you try to disrespect religious things, you’ll get punished by the local authority and might never be allowed to trek in Everest. Respect sherpa people, cause they are the one who is saving the mighty Everest from many aspects.

World highest Buddhist monastery is located in Tengboche (3,860 m).In Buddhist religion killing and harming any kind of animal by a person is termed as a sinner.

If possible, do not eat meat also (Avoiding eating meat is the best way to avoid altitude sickness).  If you are found attending such activities you’ll be subjected to the punishment by local authorities.
