Lonely Planet is one of the top Travel Guide and Travel Information site. I really feel happy to see my country Nepal listed in the 6th Position for the Hottest Countries for the 2010 in Lonely Planet The top 10 countries for 2010.
The quote from the Lonely Planet list about Nepal
But for the Himalaya, Nepal would probably be stuck in the shadow of India – but it’s hard to cast a shadow on a country that includes the highest point on earth, the summit of Mt Everest. Over the last decade, Nepal has seen its share of troubles, but 2008 was a watershed year – the rebels became the government, the kingdom became a republic and the king became a civilian. With the fall of the monarchy, the sound of temple bells has replaced the stomp of army boots and peace has returned to Shangri-La.
