Nepal is an absolutely stunning location; the huge peaks of the Himalaya, including the world's highest peak Mount Everest enchant all who visit. Nepal has an ancient culture with many fine examples of art and architecture and also boasts great outdoor activities such as climbing, white water rafting and hiking.


It is easy to gain access to Nepal from neighbouring India and the people of Nepal are very relaxed, offering a nice break from the crowded Indian plains.


One of the friendliest capitals in the world, Kathmandu is an awe inspiring place packed with intricate temples. From Kathmandu , it is only a short way to the nearby city of Patan with its amazing Durbar square steeped in history. Bhaktapur is older still and offers some fascinating insights into the famous architecture of Newari. An absolute must are the holy cities of Pashupatinath and Boudhanath, with the largest Stupa in the whole of Nepal.


For those wanting to marvel at the Himalayas leave the Kathmandu Valley for Pokhara. Surrounded by mountains of 8 kilometres and upwards, the sights are truly awe inspiring and are sometimes described as being the ‘roof of the world'. For those visitors looking to see some wildlife the Royal Chitwan national park has many unexpected animals for a mountainous region including crocodiles & rhino's. It is also possible to visit Tibet from Nepal
