Peoples of Nepal Sherpa

Product Details

The people of Nepal, so famous for their charm and hospitality, are a very diverse group of tribes and clans.

Sherpas, Newars and Gurungs may be more famous, but equally fascinating in their cultural traditions are the Tamang, Rai, Limbu, Magar, Thakali and Than tribes as well as the social groups amongst the Hindus like Brahmins and Chettris.

Festivals, rituals, language, historical background, family and marriage are just some of the themes and subjects in each book.

In this series of Pilgrims Pocket Classics you will be interested by the diverse traditions of the various tribes but, equally, surprised by some of the common themes that bring these different peoples of Nepal together as a nation, united in a beautiful land.
