About Nepal

Nepal is a country wedged between the high wall of the Himalayas and the steamy jungles of the Indian plains. Rich in culture and nature, Nepal is one of the most craved tourist destination in the world. Nepal has always promised a thrilling experience for all adventure lovers.

Soaring ice-topped mountains shimmer with rainbows of prayer flags, while the intense streets of Kathmandu are a ceaseless frenzy of honking mopeds, chattering vendors and garish signs: Nepal is a thoroughly colourful slice of Asia.

Ever since Nepal first opened its borders to outsiders in the 1950s, this tiny mountain nation has had an irresistible mystical allure for travellers. Today, legions of trekkers are drawn to the Himalaya’s most iconic and accessible hiking, some of the world’s best, with rugged trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond. Nowhere else can you trek for days or even weeks in incredible mountain scenery, secure in the knowledge that a hot meal, cosy lodge and warm slice of apple pie await you at the end of the day.

Thousands of tourists are drawn here by the adrenaline rush of rafting down a roaring Nepali river. Be it Canyoing, kayaking, rock climbing, paragliding or mountain biking all offer a once in a life time experience to the adventure lovers.

For those who prefer to see Nepal at a more gentle pace, admiring the peaks over a gin and tonic from a Himalayan viewpoint, strolling through the temple-lined medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, and joining Buddhist pilgrims on a spiritual stroll around the centuries-old stupas and temples that lie scattered across the Kathmandu Valley.

Nepal’s wild and woolly national parks, where nature buffs scan the treetops for exotic bird species and comb the jungles for rhinos and tigers from the backs of lumbering Indian elephants are equally amazing
