If jaw-dropping scenery features highly on your priority list, then you need look no further than Nepal. This delightful landlocked Himalayan Kingdom shares borders with Tibet to the north and northwest and India to the west, south and east and is perched proudly on the spine of the World’s most famous mountain range, the Himalayas.
From the highest mountain in the world, Everest, to fertile jungles, this exhilarating destination offers a range of activities including: white-water rafting, trekking, bird-watching or visiting Pilgrimage or UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In addition, a visit to Chitwan National Park will provide opportunities to experience tigers, elephants, sloths and rhinos. The Terai, the Nepalese wilderness, is particularly popular for elephant-back safaris.
While considered to be a relatively poor country, it is certainly very rich in natural resources and also in culture with strong Buddhist and Hindu influences. This remote kingdom has been a focal point for dynamic arts tradition for centuries, having produced many of the greatest paintings, carvings and sculpture within South Asia. The many faiths and traditions are intertwined to create an enchanting land of harmony and tolerance.
Visitors will feel that time has stood still as they pass quaint mountain villages, natural forests and terraced rice fields still being worked by wooden ploughs.
It is well worth taking time out to visit the backstreets of Kathmandu and experience the unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. You could wander through the winding alleys seeking out charming courtyards – perhaps on your rickshaw. A visit to Kathmandu is an intoxicating and memorable experience - an ancient city awash with colour and dotted with Hindu and Buddhist temples and street markets aplenty. It is also somewhat manic - you might even witness cows and dogs wandering randomly down the street side by side.
Tourist spots such as Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan offer quality hotel accommodation, with several of the boutique properties and eco-lodges exuding charm and natural character.
In this truly captivating land, you will be assured a very genuine welcome accompanied by the warmest of smiles from Nepal’s gentle inhabitants.
