Landlocked between China and India, Nepal is a small country with more than plenty to offer.

Majestic, vibrant, stunning- these are only a few of the words used to describe the little gem that is Nepal, a country that consistently places within the top 25 Countries of many travel websites and guides (Trip Advisor, Forbes, Lonely Planet, Absolute Travel etc.). From the dramatic scenery of the Annapurna Range to the bustling capital of Kathmandu, Nepal is a unique country that offers a one of kind experience.

The sheer diversity that Nepal boasts is unsurpassed, in both the land’s geography and the range of activities available. Activities as diverse as Elephant Polo and a micro-light flight through the Himalayas show that in Nepal, the only boundary is your 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. You could go on an elephant safari and seek out tigers in the tropical jungles of Chitwan, or go white-water rafting and kayaking in the wild Himalayan Rivers of Nepal, or maybe go trekking along the foot-hills of the Himalayas, the exciting adventures are endless and they await you.

Nepal’s mountainous North has eight of the world’s ten highest mountains including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest (8,848m) or Sagarmatha in Nepali. More than 250 peaks over 20,000 ft (6,096 m) above sea level are located in Nepal. You can watch glorious sunrises and see the world light up, as the sun ascends over the Himalayas.

The strong Hindu and Buddhist influences make Nepal a peaceful and spiritual country. Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, has long been a place of pilgrimage for devotees from Tibet, India, and Bhutan. Nepal is also home to some of the most beautiful and holiest temples and monasteries. With a variety of yoga and meditation retreats available, Nepal truly is a place that nourishes the soul.
