Namaste, Welcome to Nepal

Nepal... with rich ancient cultures set against the most dramatic scenery in the world is a land of discovery and unique experience. For broad minded individuals who value an experience that is authentic and mesmerising, Nepal is the ideal destination. Come and revel in the untouched and the undiscovered and uncover yourself.

The sheer diversity that Nepal boasts, from steamy jungle and Terai to the icy peaks of the world's highest mountains means that the range of activities on offer is unsurpassed. Trekking, mountaineering, rafting in spectacular scenery are just three things Nepal is famous for. Activities as diverse as Elephant Polo and a micro-light flight through the Himalayas show that in Nepal, the only boundary is you imagination. With 15 National & Wildlife Parks (Two are UNESCO Heritage sites) Nepal is one of the last places on earth you can spot the Asiatic rhinoceros and the Royal Bengal Tiger.

Nepal's strong Hindu and Buddhist influence make it an immensely spiritual place, having long been a place of pilgrimage for devotees from Tibet and India. There are a range of yoga and mediation courses available amidst a backdrop that will fill your mind with amazement. As the birthplace of Lord Buddha and the host of some of the holiest temples of Hinduism, Nepal is a place that nourishes the soul. It is the only country in the world home to a living goddess, the Kumari, who is just one example of how the religious and the everyday are intertwined.

For many, Nepal's greatest attraction is its people. The traditions and famous hospitality of its many different groups are indeed a major part of what makes Nepal so special. From remote mountain villages to medieval hill-towns and the ancient cities of the Kathmandu Valley, the people of Nepal are always welcoming. Come and experience the strong and unique flavours of Nepalese cuisine, prepared with love and a depth of flavour or join in and celebrate at one of the many festivals year round. In fact, with more festivals than days of the year, there is nowhere else in the world that can offer as many festivities as Nepal.
