History
Nepal's recorded history began with the Kiratis, who arrived in the 7th or 8th century BC from the east. Little is known about them, other than their deftness as sheep farmers and fondness for carrying long knives. It was during this period that Buddhism first came to the country; indeed it is claimed that Buddha and his disciple Ananda visited the Kathmandu Valley and stayed for a time in Patan. By 200 AD, Buddhism had waned, and was replaced by Hinduism, brought by the Licchavis, who invaded from northern India and overthrew the last Kirati king. The Hindus also introduced the caste system (which still continues today) and ushered in a classical age of Nepalese art and architecture. By 879, the Licchavi era had petered out and was succeeded by the Thakuri dynasty. A grim period of instability and invasion often referred to as the 'Dark Ages' followed, but Kathmandu Valley's strategic location ensured the kingdom's survival and growth. Several centuries later, the Thakuri king, Arideva, founded the Malla dynasty, kick-starting another renaissance of Nepali culture. Despite earthquakes, the odd invasion and feuding between the independent city-states of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, the dynasty flourished, reaching its zenith in the 15th century under Yaksha Malla. The rulers of Ghorkha, the most easterly region, had always coveted the Mallas' wealth. Under the inspired leadership of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Ghorkha launched a campaign to conquer the valley. In 1768 - after 27 years of fighting - they triumphed and moved their capital to Kathmandu. From this new base the kingdom's power expanded, borne by a seemingly unstoppable army, until progress was halted in 1792 by a brief and chastening war with Tibet.

History
O ne can probably say that Nepal is as old as the Himalayas, when a great lake filled the Kathmandu Valley. One legend holds that this lake was drained by a thunderbolt thrown against the walls of the Valley by the Hindu god Krishna. Another claims it was drained by the patriarch Manjushri as he wanted to get a closer look at a Swayambhu or Adhi-buddha, the beautiful lotus flower resting on the lake. But the recorded history of Nepal does not start until around 800 BC, with the beginning of the Kirat Period. After that was the Lichhavi and Thakuri Period, followed by the Malla Period and finally the Shah Period.

History
History to the Mid-Twentieth Century
By the 4th cent. A.D. The struggle for power among the Nepalese nobility culminated in 1846 with the rise to political dominance of the Rana family. Jung Bahadur Rana established a line of hereditary prime ministers, who controlled the government until 1950, and the Shah dynasty kings were mere figureheads. In 1854, Nepal again invaded Tibet, which was forced to pay tribute from then until 1953. Under the Ranas, Nepal was deliberately isolated from foreign influences; this policy helped to maintain independence during the colonial period but prevented economic and social modernization. Relations with Britain were cordial, however, and in 1923 a British-Nepalese treaty expressly affirmed Nepal's full sovereignty. Nepal supplied many troops for the British army in both world wars.
Recent History
The successful Indian movement for independence (1947) stimulated democratic sentiment in Nepal. The newly formed Congress party of Nepal precipitated a revolt in 1950 that forced the autocratic Ranas to share power in a new cabinet. King Tribhuvan Bir Bikram, who sympathized with the democratic movement, took temporary refuge in India and returned as a constitutional monarch. In 1959 a democratic constitution was promulgated, and parliamentary elections gave the Congress party a clear majority.

Nepal History of Nepal While Nepal is an ancient land, it has only been a country for about 300 years. Independent hill states ruled the area until the late 18th century, when Prince Prithvi Narayan Shah united all of what is now Nepal. The nation became a constitutional monarchy in 1950, before slipping into a dictatorship eight years later. Demonstrations in the late 1980s against oppressive rule resulted in multiparty elections in May 1991, and the country is once again a constitutional monarchy. The beloved royal family was shattered in 2001 when Crown Prince Dipendra killed nine members of the royal family, including King Birenda, before shooting himself. The King's death was doubly tragic because he played an important role as a peacemaker in the Nepali parliament. In the months after his death, Maoist insurgents stepped up their attacks on the government and have now rendered large tracts of the country unsafe for travelers.

    The Nepal side of the Himalaya holds the world's highest mountains and undoubtedly has the worlds best trekking.
    Nepal was closed to foreigners until 1949, and has been the ultimate destination for mountaineers and trekkers alike from all over the world. Enhancing this beautiful remote part of the world is the great diversity of culture, religion, geography and wildlife guaranteed to titillate and challenge your imagination.
    NATURAL HISTORY:
    Nepal is a landlocked country with the nearest seacoast being 700 miles away in India.
    Nepal borders India and Tibet/China. Along the northern edge of the country, bordering the Tibetan Plateau, are the great peaks of the Himalayas. Eight of the ten highest mountains are in Nepal including Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth at over 29,029 feet and growing every year.
    The size of Nepal is 54,000 square miles ; it contains the widest altitude variation of any country on earth. Nepal from east and west stretches just 500 miles and only 150 miles between the north and south! This country could fit into the state of California. But, if you were to stretch it out and level all of the mountains, Nepal would stretch clear across the US and then some. Eighty percent of the country is hilly and mountainous and twenty percent are plains and lowlands.

    http://www.infoclub.com.np/nepal/history/history_ancient.htm
    The Ancient Period THE MYTHOLOGICAL PERIOD The country, full of great forests, was the chosen place for sages like Kanwa, Biswamitra, Agastya, Valmiki, Yajnavalkya and others. King Dushyanta of India married Shakuntala, the adopted daughter of Kanwa Rishi of Nepal. Their son Bharat ruled over here. Then Nepal was called Mahabharat, and the surrounding territories under the souverainty of King Bharat was called Bharat (now the other name of India). The Mahabharat range stands to corroborate this belief of King Bharat's supremacy. There are several references in the religious books of Hindus about Nepal. Janak, the king of Janakpur was known widely for the administration of justice. Some people believe that the Ramayan was composed at the bank of the Saptagandaki. Veda Vyasa was born here. The Vyas Cave at Damauli (Vyasangar) signifies this belief. Similarly, Biratnagar, the kingdom of King Birat is also mentioned in the Mahabharata. All these references show that Nepal had developed long before Manjushri visited the Kathmandu Valley. It is mentioned in Swayambhu Puran that Manjushri came from China and managed to drain away the water of a big lake called Nagadaha and peopled the valley. He established a town called Manjupattan and installed Dharmakar, its king. After that, the history of Nepal was more or less limited to the history of the Kathmandu Valley. Since then, Nepal has been ruled by the kings of various dynasties - the Ahirs or Gopala, the Kiratas, the Lichchhavis, the Mallas and the Shahs.

The USSR and the United States were major aid donors. A 1956 treaty with China recognized Chinese sovereignty over Tibet and officially terminated the century-old Tibetan tribute to Nepal; all Nepalese troops left Tibet in 1957. The Sino-Nepalese border treaty of 1961 defined Nepal's Himalayan frontier.

    Essential Info Highlights Itineraries History Nepal - A Brief History In 1768 Prithvi Marayan Shah, the 9th Shah king, invaded the Kathmandu Valley from his stronghold near Pokhara. To conquer the Valley was a long held dream on account of the perceived wealth and fertility of the area. On victory the king moved his administration to Kathmandu and the Shah dynasty still exists to this day. Undeterred by unsuccessful skirmishes against the Chinese, the Nepalis continued to stretch their borders, in particular through the Terai and down into what is now Sikkim in India. Such expansion led to conflict with the British who had by now started their colonisation of India, and the Nepalis suffered defeats which led to the Treaty of Sugauli in 1816. The result was that Britain took most of Sikkim and most of the Terai although some of the land was returned in 1858 as a reward for Nepali support during the Indian Mutiny. In 1846 a palace coup engineered by a young Chhetri noble from western Nepal, Jung Bahadur, resulted in the new dynasty of Ranas emerging as the real power behind the Shah kings for more than a century. Nepal's self-enforced isolation during this period meant that only a handful of travellers crossed its borders although a British resident was always stationed in Kathmandu. Conversely Gurkha soldiers who were employed by the British and Indian armies fought in many different areas of the world.

    History
    Nepal's early history is so intertwined with legend, that it is sometimes almost impossible to separate fact from myth. A good example of this mingling of fact and fiction is the legend about the origin of the Kathmandu Valley.
    The Hindu belief is that it was Krishna who created the valley by throwing a thunderbolt that created the Chobar Gorge. Scientific view also states the valley was actually under water once and that its rivers do flow southward through the Chobar Gorge.... 2002-2003. All Right Reserved. Mila Adventure Pvt. Ltd.
