MORE INFO ABOUT NEPAL
Welcome to the country that towers over the world. Although Nepal is so much more than the Himalayas. Flourishing under the watchful eye of Everest are ancient temples, tiger-stalked jungles, and thundering white-water rapids.
Indeed everything about this part of Asia feels like Mother Nature's carefully curated exhibition, which makes the culture that springs from it all the more fascinating. First there's the singular capital, Kathmandu, one of the oldest inhabited places on earth, full of beautiful temples and vibrant festivities. Everything here is built to survive the elements, from landscape-traversing rickshaws to a cuisine shaped by often harsh conditions.
