Beautiful Terai

Posted in Travel & Places at 2:20 pm by www.PHALANO.com


By Rajesh KC

We have always been portraying Nepal as a landlocked mountainous country discriminating a large area of flat region, Terai, its culture and the people living there who proudly love to be called Nepali. We have beautiful mountains, but the beauty of Terai is also fascinating. Every time I visit my village, Sehari in Nawalparasi, I feel so refreshed as its peace loving people and natural beauties have always fascinated me. Have you explored our Beautiful Terai?

    Hello Mr Rajesh KC

    If you have taken these all pictures yourself then I must admire your photography skills. I am visiting Nepal in Jan 08 and will love to meet you in regards of some business of photography.
    As I am head of Madhesh development Group UK and we are also marketing ecotourism in Terai, Nepal that will help to develop sustainable livelihood in Madhesh. Your photography definitely will help to Terai in some way.
    Great Job, well done.

    It is wonderful collection. Please as you are proudly rendering so many attractive and valuable photos, then correctly write the name of our flatland. It is TARAI not TERAI. Do not copy the nonlingual pronounciation. If then you have to write KATMANDU instead of KATHMANDU.

    Thanks again for your appreciative efforts.
