Travel to Nepal
The country of Nepal, officially a Republic, is a country locked in by Tibet in the north and India to the south, east and west.
Geographically it is mainly constituted of the mighty Himalayan range and to a lesser extent the Indo-Gangetic plain.
Nepal lays claim to containing ten of the world’s highest peaks, Mount Everest being the highest point on Earth. Naturally, Nepal is a mountaineering paradise.
Tourism contributes to the country’s economic growth. Despite Nepal’s global image as a holiday spot for trekkers and climbers, there is more to the country than backpacks and peaks.
Kathmandu, the nation’s capital has a wealth of ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples. Some of the places you must visit in Kathmandu include Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath Stupa.
If trekking is not your thing, then you might consider a panoramic mountain flight over Mount Everest as an alternative to climbing in the infamous ‘Death Zone’. The often rocky and hilly terrain of Nepal lends itself as an exciting spot to venture into a variety of adventure sports. Rafting on the Bhote Koshi River, mountain biking in and around the country (Annapurna Circuit by mountain bike, Kathmandu to Nargakot etc), canyoning, bungee jumping, kayaking and paragliding are wonderful options.
Whatever you decide to do, a visit to Nepal, should provide you with a memorable trip, allowing you to take in spectacular mountain views and scenery, jungle wildlife viewing, witnessing ancient temples and much more.
Your only problem will be trying to fit in everything into the length of your trip window.
