On every Khukuri beer bottle you will find some of the icons that will take you on a journey to the land of Khukuri and the Himalayas.

 

Khukuri: Khukuri is the most famous of knives, partly so because of the romance and myths behind it. In fact, it is due to the decisive slashing edge of the Khukuri that it became well-known to those who had to face it in the well-documented battlefields since 1814 when the British in India faced the Gurkhas in Western Nepal. Thus was born the khukuri in history.
Khukuri is the national knife of Nepal, originating in ancient times. It is an all-purpose knife of the hill-peoples of Nepal, the Gurkhas, who form the formidable Brigades of Gurkhas both in the British and Indian Armies. The khukuri is a medium-length curved knife carried by each Gurkha soldier in uniform and in battle. In his grip, it is an extension of his arm, a formidable razor-shape weapon and a cutting tool. When his rifle misfires, or his bullets have run out, a Gurkha unsheathes his khukuri and makes his final “do-or-die” run on the enemy in a fury to finish the business. This scene evoked romance and legend.

 

Mount Everest: Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world in Nepal, is one of the most ultimate adventures for people around the world. Everest is known to be around 60 million years old. Sir George Everest, Surveyor General of British India from 1830 to 1843, first recorded the location of Everest in 1841 and gave it his name.
Why do so many want to climb Mt. Everest? To fulfill a dream or make a living, for the fame and fortune, or the sense of inner fulfillment? Is it a physical, mental or spiritual challenge? No matter what it is, Mt. Everest continues to mesmerize the world and make us proud.

 

Nepal Flag: It is the world's only national flag that is non-quadrilateral in shape. The flag is a simplified combination of two single pennons, the vexillological word for a pennant. Its crimson red is the colour of the rhododendron, the country's national flower. It is also the national color of Nepal, representing the brave spirits of the Nepalese people. The blue border is the colour of peace, and symbolizes the peace and harmony that has been prevalent in the country since the age of Gautama Buddha, who was born in Nepal. The two triangles symbolize the Himalaya Mountains and represent the two major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism.The red triangular flag has been a Hindu symbol of victory since the time of Ramayana and Mahabharata. The depiction of celestial bodies represents permanence, the hope that Nepal will last as long as the sun and the moon. The moon symbolizes that the Nepalese are soothing and calm, while the sun symbolizes fierce resolve. The moon also symbolizes the shades and the cool weather of the Himalayas, while the sun symbolizes the heat and the high temperature at the lower part (Terai) of Nepal.
