Filming in Nepal

Many describe Nepal as a natural studio for filming. Home to some of the tallest peaks on earth, including the majestic Mount Everest the highest peak in the world, Nepal is a perfect location for filming. Nepal’s natural beauty, rich history, timeless culture and tradition, diverse flora and fauna, colorful festivals and jatras, and topographical variations – from 60 meters above sea level to the top of the world in less than 300 kilometers – offers many untold stories to filmmakers from all over the world. Rara Films Pvt Ltd – our sister concern – has a pool of state of the art equipment and talents that are involved in filmmaking for over a decade. Under the leadership of its CEO Mr Bhojraj Bhat, Rara Films have worked in some very interesting projects in Nepal and beyond.
