Waterfall in Nepal

waterfalls in nepal

Nepal a country with 277 big and small rivers offers many magnificent waterfalls to attract the nature lovers.A waterfall is a place where flowing water rapidly drops in elevation as it flows over a steep region or a cliff. Typically, a river flows over a large step in the rocks that may have been formed by a fault line. As it increases its velocity at the edge of the waterfall, it plucks material from the riverbed. This causes the waterfall to carve deeper into the bed and to recede upstream. Often over time, the waterfall will recede back to form a canyon or gorge downstream as it recedes upstream, and it will carve deeper into the ridge above it.

Erecting a swing (made of bamboo branches and ropes) as part of enjoying Dashain has been very symbolic, though this tradition is gradually in decline and are now seen only in the suburbs and rural areas of the country.

Nonetheless, people still enjoy the ride very much, regardless of the age.
