Speaking of the Expo Friday marks the National Pavilion Day of Nepal. With the theme "Tales of Kathmandu", the Nepal Pavilion is offering a quiet space for visitors to see the soul of a city.

Signature architecture, symbolic wood sculptures... Nepal takes visitors through a time tunnel of 2,000 years. The pavilion recaptures important historic periods via its legacy of art and culture. It also depicts the current urban expansion in Kathmandu, shedding light on the opportunities and challenges in environment protection and development of renewable energies.

An art form that traces Nepalese culture from its earliest beginnings right to modern times is sculpture. The recreation on wood provides an insight into the religion of the country, the life of the people, and of course the talent of Nepalese artists.

Nepal, a landlocked country in South Asia, is located in the south of Himalayas. It's a home to some 30 million people who own a rich and diverse geography, culture, and religions.

The mountainous north has eight of the world's ten highest mountains including MT. Everest -- the highest. So it's no wonder Nepal is a never-ending outdoor adventure play-ground. It's one of the best ever popular choices for hiking, trekking, rock climbing, peak climbing, rafting a long list of activities await you.
