Patan Durbar Square, Nepal
Nepal is a country which demands to be explored. You’ll find this haven for hikers, cyclists and climbers nestled in between Tibet and India – it’s home to everything from the mighty Himalayan peaks to subtropical forests, ancient temples, bustling cities and sleepy villages. This destination embraces Buddhist values and is described as a deeply spiritual place; from the vast highlands down to the quaint villages, a mystical quality can be felt in the air, and its colourful prayer flags are iconic across the globe.
On Nepal vacations, you can discover the incredible mountain ranges and wild craggy landscapes, reflecting the ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity of this country. The north contains eight out of ten of the highest mountains in the world; many travelers flock to Mount Everest to stand in awe of this mighty phenomena. There are countless treks to embark on too, from the Annapurna Circuit with its forests and majestic scenery, to the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, where you can wander through the blooming rhododendron forest, down to the Gurung villages.
When you don’t want to hike, raft, kayak and climb your way through Nepal’s fascinating landscapes, tour the ancient stupas and monasteries to get a feel for this extraordinary place. Alternatively, visit Chitwan National Park to gaze at noble tigers, rhinos, and bears in the wild. Then, unwind and feast on some delicious momos (Nepalese dumplings), and experience the complex flavours and spices of this wondrous land.
