Juxtaposition and synthesis of old and new, nature and culture, ecology and environment, flora and fauna, Buddhism and present ideas and behavior, rituals and other practices, living goddess- Kumari and reincarnated Lama- Rimpohe, masks and mantras, faith healers and sorcerers, shamanism and spiritism is a unique and rewarding feature of this country. Equally vibrant and fascinating are the four heritages popularly known as Natural Heritage (Nature gifts), History rooted Heritage (Historical places and monuments), Manufactured Heritage (Manmade artifacts) and Socio-ideological Heritage (Social institutions-family, marriage, kinships, customs, dresses and ornament food habits, festivals, dance, drama, folk songs, ethos, norms, values, morals and beliefs).
