Weddings: Some of the world’s best places to get a ‘YES’…In Nepal.
Once you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with that special someone, you’re faced with what can feel like an even greater decision. Where do I pop the question?
He Said/She Said:
‘Nepal is one place in the world where you could fall in love’. Nepal has had its share of visitors in all shades of human nature and colors for that perfect chemistry – right from the gentlest of people on earth to legendary mountaineers who came, saw and conquered its peaks. There are those who flew in just to watch the rare bird species and we also had those shady con artists who said that money grows on trees in Nepal – which they inadvertently found in Nepal’s ATMs, and caught in the act. And we also had notorious international criminals like Charles Sobraj who swore that he’d even smuggle an elephant out of Nepal, which became his nemesis, only to land up in Nepal’s dingy slammers, where he still languishes; Nepal has seen them all – the Good, the Bad…and the Ugly.
Nevertheless, despite this heady mix of visitors we’ve had, all will swear that Nepal is one place in the world where you could fall in love, And ironically, none other than Charles Sobraj will vouch for this. There are many who come to Nepal and fall in love with the country…& one another. We’ve also known of several who’ve sorted out some of the most troublesome boardroom hurdles in Nepal’s tranquil resorts on the mountains and sworn enemies have unexpectedly bumped into each other high up on the trails of this lovely Himalayan country, only to come down to earth and give peace a chance, leaving Nepal with life long friendships; the unpredictable only happens in this beautiful slow moving country that prefers to stay behind the clock.
Ever thought of enjoying your honeymoon at 8848m atop Mt. Everest? It’s a mind blowing phenomenon on the highest mountain in the world. In a few minutes minus 20 degrees at freezing point, with entwined hands, enjoy warmed champagne, look into her eyes and tell her the magical words…that you crossed so many oceans just to be with her, climbed the highest mountains just to live with her… forever…and in these exceptional settings of spectacular landscapes, hear her whispering the golden words – ‘I Do’- and its sealed…forever; a romantic occasion never to be forgotten at a spot where legends were made. And should this work as planned, you will be the second couple in the world to have tied the knot atop Everest, the king of all peaks on planet earth.
The options for weddings and honeymoons are so many in Nepal; we’ll go a little further. Sometimes women prefer to be landlocked, and with this in mind, the options would be Nagarkot and Dhulikhel, sleepy little honeymoon resorts lost in a world of its own natural beauty; offering perfect views of the enveloping mountains; you can hang out in these quiet and peaceful ancient towns for hours, watching the local folks attired in colorful dress ramble on by. As you stroll along the quiet walks with your paramour, look out for the lovely landscapes that surround you, watch the ancient valley lit up in the evenings, and from a vantage point of your resort in the moments of twilight, Steal a kiss from your special one as the sun sets in a spectacular display of colors over some of the most famous peaks in the world.
And if this is not all, then seal it in ancient Kathmandu’s ‘Garden of Dreams’, a romantic spot of historical significance that will produce a wooing environment similar to that of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Just before you enter Kathmandu’s tourist hub Thamel, opposite to the SAARC Secretariat on busy Tridevi Marg, a pert little entrance in a tall brick wall leads into perhaps the most unimagined experience in the city. Step inside and you will encounter a revival of classical art forms in this historical garden -- a place of ponds and lily pads, bright well trimmed green lawns and whispering palm trees, and something most welcome, quiet. This is a hypnotically lovely place, especially when illuminated at night. Sit down to a few cuppers of tea/coffee/wine, and let rip about ‘those were the days my love, I thought they’d never end’’ at the Kaiser Café to complete the experience…and tell her how much she means to you. To go off track for the wilder side of love and romance, then make it hot, steamy and mushy with a jungle foray at any of Nepal’s lush green national parks…there’s no one to disturb you except the birds and one of them tigers yawning in the glades, enjoying the bliss of your love shared with the love of your life… for these are the backdrops to a guaranteed ‘YES’ in a world bereft of true love.
Incentive Holidays has all the expertise required to plan and organize your wedding and Honeymoon so that you ‘Live the love of your Dreams’ right to the hilt.
Film Shooting Arrangement
Film Shooting: Nepal’s natural geographic beauty has block buster locations to film movies of every genre known.
‘This film may change my life forever’’. This is what some of us feel after watching a film that touches the heart deep down in those most emotional corners of the soul. Some moments live forever in our celluloid age, and for many fans, film locations where scenes were shot have become places of pilgrimage; and Nepal – known worldwide as ‘the abode of the gods’ aptly fits into such a scenario. Explore Nepal through the eyes of Cecil B. Demille who shot ‘The Ten Commandments’’, using the Sinai desert and locations in the historical Middle east. Nepal has ideal locations for movies of religious dimensions in typical spots that include rugged Dolpa, Mustang, Jomsom and Muktinath. These areas possess some of the best known trekking trails in the world with sceneries that stun the senses. Award-winning photographer/filmmaker Eric Valli dared to create this film in the forbidden Dolpo region of Nepal to create ‘Himalaya’ [‘Caravan’, the first Nepalese film to be nominated for an International Academy Award. Nepal has made a niche for itself with some of the best locations in the world to shoot films of any entertaining level.
Foreign film-makers can use Nepal’s cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur with its narrow back lanes to film movies similar to the type of known Hollywood films like ‘Heat’ and ‘Bonnie & Clyde’’ where marathon chases can be made on ‘foot’ instead of cars because of Kathmandu’s cramped streets and the maze of backyard lanes that would make for exceptional films where the costs would also be far less than using cars or any kind of vehicles. Even a gutsy gritty film on Nepal’s recent earthquakes can be turned into a film of formidable ‘search and rescue’ operations based on a love story with tragic and happy conclusions that could move a world looking for the ideal story of survival in the toughest of times.
Films on the lines of ‘Braveheart’ based on Scottish history can also be created and shot on the sweeping, mountainous landscapes of Nepal which cannot be faked and really are the wild, rocky Highlands of the Himalayas which are of the highest altitudes in the world. Nepal’s Himalayas can be used for producing films on India’s renowned Mughal history, which began with Timur [Tamerlane – a descendent of Genghis Khan] who came in via the Khyber Pass from Afghanistan to establish Mughal rule in all of India. Nepal possesses superb backgrounds for films of historical significance.
The number of film shootings taking place in Nepal has witnessed a growing trend each year, according to government data. This reflects Nepal’s increasing popularity for on-location shootings. In studying different trending patterns, foreign film-makers have preferred cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur as well as Mt Everest and sites in Chitwan, Baglung, Pokhara, Lukla, Namche and Nagarkot. Though much documentaries shot in Nepal are in English, many French, German, Dutch, Japanese, Danish, Swedish and Indonesian films, which also include documentaries and TVCs have also been shot in Nepal. Past records show various movies shot in Nepal went on to become famous hitting box office charts; some of them are namely: ‘The Conquest of Everest’, the Chinese movie ‘Up in the Wind’, Hindi movies ‘Khuda Gawah’, the block buster ‘Hare Ram Hare Krishna’, ‘Love in Nepal’, ‘Caravan’ and the Cantonese film ‘Bodhi Dharma and Qi Yuah’.
‘Incentive Holidays’ has the expertise to carry out all the groundwork related to obtaining permission from government offices, processing all the paper work and handling all logistics in transporting equipment and providing skilled manpower for locations based in challenging Himalayan regions.
Photography: Boundless locations of diverse beauty for amateurs and professional photographers.
Photography is a pleasant art, but also one that can be learned. Some forethought, a little basic knowledge and the will to go out and tramp some of Nepal’s literal towns that can be billed as ‘living museums’’, with the vast rural landscapes of immense scenic beauty is sure to bring gratifying results for photographers from all walks of life heading to Nepal.
From sunrise to sunsets, religious and spiritual events, festivals and imposing mountains, reels of photographic memories can be passed down to generations.
The sun’s fiery globe lingering over the rose tinted Himalayas is the picture every Nepal visitor dreams of taking. Though the ideal vantage point may be a week’s hike into hills above 3000m, during clear weather, especially in the falls, you can take mountable shots even from the balcony of your hotel in Kathmandu. The autumn season is a photographer’s delight to shoot the Himalayas. From atop any of Kathmandu’s ‘high rise’ hotels, or from swayambhunath, you’ll witness the impressive ridge that guards the north of Kathmandu. From the hilltops nearby – Kakani, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel or Phulchoki, you’ll be able to capture heart throbbing views of the Himalayan horizon, from Everest to the Annapurnas; all of these high points are accessible by vehicle. Comfortable hotel accommodations are available at all these havens of exquisite beauty.
Capture the living world of Nepal with its vibrant colours. The mind blowing sunrise and sunset views are but some of the best photo shots you can come by in Nepal.
Any one of Incentive Holidays camera pros will be with you on your photography tour and guide you on how to be ‘Ready, Aim and Shoot’ because nearly every area or landscape in Nepal is photographable if not framable – and you will find scenes to match any frame or thought that catches your eye.
