Nepal

Though Nepal is small it has so much to offer the visitor that each day of your journey through this ancient land will be a discovery. It is an opportunity for you to take in the country’s remarkable natural Kaleidoscope, delve into its vast cultural repository and delight in its equally extensive adventure offerings.

The Nepal Himalayas contain as many as eight of the ten highest peaks in the world, is undoubtedly the country’s biggest allure. However, there is much more to Nepal than just Mt. Everest and its minions. Mighty rivers tumble down from the Himalaya offering world class rafting opportunities and the flatlands of the Terai are dotted with jungle reserves that shelter some of Asia’s most exotic wildlife. Indeed, the breathtaking biotic diversity that can be found here has given the country a natural affluence matched by few places on this earth.

Equally breathtaking is Nepal’s cultural heritage. The Kathmandu valley with temples, shrines and other monuments packed into its nook and cranny as well as its arts and crafts, architecture and the year round celebrations that mark numerous festivals is the cultural hub of the nation. The practices and beliefs of the diverse communities living elsewhere in the Kingdom have added extra colour and flavour to Nepal’s vibrant culture.
