Calling all adventurers! Snuggled in-between Tibet and India you’ll find this haven for hikers, cyclists and climbers alike. Home to mighty Himalayan peaks and subtropical forests, bustling cities and sleepy villages, Nepal is a country that demands to be explored.
Just like the physical landscape, the cultural makeup here is diverse too. The people who live here come from a wide range of ethnic groups and speak a whole host of languages. While some live in temple-studded cities others call highland settlements home. Travellers might come for the mountains, but they leave charmed with impressive ancient temples, quaint villages and excellent jungle wildlife.
But the ultimate attraction here has to be the iconic and accessible trekking. Nepal is so well set up for accommodating keen hikers too with plenty of lodges dotted along the renowned Annapurna Circuit. If you tire of walking, indulge your inner thrill seeker with a rafting session. Wildlife lovers will love the plentiful national parks, like Chitwan, which boast exotic birds and all manner of interesting animals, from tigers to crocodiles.
In between epic trekking and wildlife spotting make time to explore the medieval city squares of Kathmandu and join Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims for a tour of ancient stupas and monasteries. And whatever you do – be sure to try some momos (Nepalese dumplings).
