Nepal in Google’s top 10 travel destinations of 2015

In spite of being home to Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain on earth and the birthplace of the Buddha, Nepal remained a virgin paradise for tourists until the 1950s.Having had enough share of anonymity to the world, last week the Asian destination discreetly amazed the world by ranking 9th in Google’s “Top 10 Travel Videos of 2015”.

Google Maps’ dynamic tour of the Khumbu region made Nepal rank 9th on the list of “Top Ten travel videos of 2015” with a breathtaking satellite virtual tour named “Trek the mountains of Khumbu, Nepal in Google Maps“. The Google Map Ad Engine features a virtual tour of the stunning mountain landscape of the Khumbu region of Nepal, and zooms in into the region’s local lifestyle. The video grossed a total of 5.2 million hits while writing this article. The rank was decided through the total of hits received by each video.

Nepal is a small landlocked country sharing its border with India and China. t need not worry about its border security on the North. The Northern patrol units are the mighty Himalayas themselves, which enchant a lot of mountain enthusiasts to the country every year.

World’s highest point, the top of Everest, lies in the heart of the Khumbu region. This region is also the home of the Sherpas, mountain dwellers of the Everest region. The Sherpas were recently tagged as the Superhuman of the Himalayas by an independent report.

I believe travel is the best remedy that separates us from the materialistic world. When I don't get to go around, I love writing, playing guitar or just getting lost inside an awesome novel.
