Wrapped around the Himalayan mountain range is the remarkable country of Nepal. It is the birthplace of Buddha and is a land of fabled legend and incredible beauty. Within its narrow confines, Nepal contains an utterly spectacular variety of culture and landscapes. As well as its stunning natural beauty, Nepal has a simple charm, a wonderful atmosphere, and is brimming with amazing culture and history.
Situated on the banks of the Bagmati River, Kathmandu is the hub of life in Nepal, and a traveller's paradise. A small medieval city, it's highlights are the historic Durbar Square, the Temple of the Living Goddess, the Royal Palace, the Pashupatinath Hindu temple, Boudhanath Buddhist stupa, and the Swayambunath Monkey temple-all set against the magnificent Himalayan backdrop.
Outside of the buzzing capital, Nepal has an incredible diversity of landscape and climate - from the high Himalayan mountains of the Annapurna range and Kodari, to the delightful foothills of Dhulikhel and Pokhara, to the humid lowland rain forests of Chitwan National Park. There is an equally varied number of activities, from wildlife-spotting in Chitwan, to trekking in the incredible countryside, to white water rafting, and stunning views of Mount Everest!
With traditional culture, diverse landscapes, and the friendly atmosphere, Nepal is an incredibly memorable place to visit!
