Known for boasting some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery including the iconic Mt Everest, Nepal offers visitors a truly breathtaking experience around every corner. Although compact in size especially when compared to its neighbouring countries, India and China, this land locked country has a lot to offer the distinguished traveller.
Bordered by the awe-inspiring Himalayan range Nepal offers visitors a plethora of outstanding trekking opportunities from light day walks to extended hikes staying in traditional tea houses and luxurious mountain lodges. For the less active or time short there are also options from which to enjoy the breathtaking views of the world’s highest peak from the sky by taking a light aircraft or helicopter flight – a truly magical experience.
Nepal is also a wildlife lover’s paradise with its National Parks being home to elephant, rhino, tiger, sloth bear, bison, deer, monkeys and over 450 species of birds. Most safaris are uniquely conducted by riding on the back of an elephant which makes the experience even more spectacular.
For those looking to explore Nepal at a more relaxed pace then think leisurely strolls around the atmospheric streets of Kathmandu & Pokhara, enjoying a drink in a viewpoint restaurant whilst absorbing the glorious views over the Himalaya and floating down the Seti River away from civilisation and surrounded by serene mountain scenery.
A trip to Nepal is sure to enthral both trekkers and non trekkers with its awe-inspiring scenery, appealing accommodation, colourful bazaars, friendly locals and unique experiences. Whether you visit as a standalone destination or as part of an extended trip to the Indian sub-continent, there is something for everyone to enjoy in Nepal.
