Nepal

Nepal is a stunning mountain kingdom which straddles the Himalayas, to the north of India and to the south of Tibet. Walk well-trodden paths through villages and valleys in the low hills or you may venture into the high mountains for some testing trekking to various base camps.  Nepal has many extremities of climate and topography providing a dynamic diversity of landscape, flora and fauna, not to mention a warm and welcoming ancient culture to explore.

For culture, Kathmandu Valley abounds with small, medieval cities, temples and ancient monuments, all set against a backdrop of distant mountain peaks. Nepal’s many rivers, crashing down from the mountains also offer excellent rafting opportunities. This is the perfect place to go in search of the rhino and elusive tigers in the world-famous Royal Chitwan National Park.

A final, peaceful day in the beautiful Pokhara Valley allows time to reflect on all that this journey has revealed or indulge in one of the many adventure sports on offer, such as paragliding, white water rafting or simply spend an afternoon bobbing along on a paddle boat watching the world go by.
