Professionally unexplored until the 1950s, known for Mount Everest (8848 meter, the highest mountain in the world) and tens of other world’s highest mountains and peaks, a vast diversity of geography from the Himalayas to the both giant and dwarf hills along with the plains of southern Terai region, Nepal remains the ultimate paradise. Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, the enlightened spiritual teacher of about 500 million Buddhists in the world was born at Lumbini in Nepal. We believe Nepal, “the birth place of Buddha, is still, one of the most sacred adventure and pilgrimage tour destinations for all peace lovers. Moreover, the world famous brave Gurkhas never let this ever beautiful and sovereign land be forgotten in adventure tourism.

Absolutely anyone should feel free to plunge forward and share some knowledge on Wikitravel. If you're starting to find yourself getting more involved, the following tips and tricks might help you get up to speed working on Wikitravel articles and participating in the Wikitravel community.

  1. You are the most important resource Wikitravel has. Please join discussions, make comments, or ask questions. Your knowledge makes Wikitravel a better guide; your comments on our processes makes Wikitravel a better project.
  2. We have a help section with lots of info on how to work with our software, a manual of style with ideas on how articles are formatted and policies and guidelines describe how we work together. Our guide to writing tone describes how we hope to create a lively guide, and to shun dry, encyclopaedic writing.
  3. If you have some particular info you want to share, see the guidelines about where you can stick it. Have a look at article templates to see what the headings all mean. If you're still not sure, ask, or put it where you think it fits best and someone else will move it to the right place.
  4. Please consider creating a user account. Other wikitravelers will get to know and trust your work. You can still be anonymous, and you don't even need to give your name. Once you have an account and have made some edits, other wikitravellers can spend less time checking and more time improving the guide! You can also create a user page if you want, where you can talk about yourself, places you've been, ideas you have. Or you can just leave it blank. Your choice.
  5. When you edit an article, you can make a short comment describing your change. If you remove information (say a restaurant has closed), make a note of it there.
  6. If you wish you can add yourself to the List of Wikitravellers by location. Other wikitravellers may collaborate when describing the region you live in.
  7. Articles you work on can and probably will be changed by other people. Making changes will often inspire others to make additions to your work.
  8. Every article has an associated Talk page where we discuss how best to work on that article. If you're wondering what's up with some article, why it's this way instead of that, check the talk page by clicking the discussion link.
  9. Once you have a user account, other Wikitravellers can send you messages through your user talk page. When there are new messages on your talk page, you'll see a blinking red circle next to the "my talk" link on any Wikitravel page. You should check to see what someone has to say.
  10. Wikitravel is a travel guide, not a travel journal. Try to share what you learned, not what you did. Avoid using first person pronouns like "I" or "we". There is no need to sign or date your contribution.
  11. Our goals and non-goals explain what we're trying to do, and what we're not trying to do.
  12. There are lots of articles on Wikitravel that "aren't quite there yet". Don't assume that just because something's left out, misspelled, or weirdly formatted that we want it that way.
  13. Other people working on Wikitravel are here to share their knowledge and make a great Web site. In dealing with other contributors, assume that people are trying to do what's best for travellers and for the project.
  14. Feel free to express yourself in a lively tone.
  15. We want to make guides that can be used offline, either as printed pages or with a local copy on a mobile device. Wikitravel is not just an online guide Web site.
  16. Your contributions should be original work, created by you. Please don't copy text or images from other Web sites to Wikitravel.
  17. Wikitravellers sometimes use Wikitravel:Jargon in edit summaries or discussion pages.
