Culture and Heritage
The Kathmandu valley is a fascinating showcase of art, history and tradition with seven UNESCO world heritage sites. And Nepal is famous not only for its mountain ranges but also tropical rainforests containing some of the world's most exotic animals. The children supported by UK-based charity Child Action Nepal are encouraged to learn about and celebrate their rich culture and heritage. Days out to the nearby sites and longer trips outside the city are often paid for by individual donors including orphanage founder Florence Krief during her frequent visits to Nepal.
