Wrapped around the Himalayan mountain range is the remarkable country of Nepal. It is the birthplace of Buddha and is a land of fabled legend and incredible beauty. Within its narrow confines, Nepal contains an utterly spectacular variety of culture and landscapes.
Kathmandu is the hub of life in Nepal, and a traveller's paradise packed full of highlights such as are the historic Durbar Square, the Boudhanath Buddhist stupa, and the Swayambunath Monkey temple - all set against the magnificent Himalayan backdrop. Outside of the buzzing capital, Nepal has an incredible diversity of landscapes and climate - from the high Himalayan mountains of the Annapurna range and Kodari, to the delightful foothills of Dhulikhel and Pokhara, to the humid lowland rainforests of Chitwan National Park. There is an equally varied number of activities, from wildlife-spotting in Chitwan, to trekking in the incredible countryside, to white water rafting, and of course the epic trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain!
