A tiny mountain nation landlocked in South Asia and bordered by China to its north and India to its south, east and west, Nepal is the fabled land of ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples, elephant safaris, tiger-filled jungles, and off-the-scale mountain scenery in the Himalayas. Beyond the snow-capped peaks of its shining star, Mount Everest, Nepal is an action-packed wonderland that also promises cultural enlightenment in its villages and cities, and wildlife-rich adventures in its national parks.

For epic adventure, holidays to Nepal have it all; awe-inspiring mountains, culture-rich cities, and some of the world’s best white-water rafting, mountaineering, hiking, trekking, and paragliding.
The granddaddy of adventures is at Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak measuring 8,848-metres. Follow the adventurous footsteps of Edmund Hillary, with the most intrepid persevering to reach the iconic Everest Base Camp. If it is aerial views you’re after, opt for the hour-long scenic flight over Mount Everest.
For a wildlife-watching fix, Chitwan National Park is Nepal’s oldest reserve, boasting some of South Asia’s best-protected grassland. Take an elephant safari to get a closer view of the endangered one-horned rhino - or even catch a glimpse of the elusive Bengal tiger. Equally thrilling is Bardia National Park, home to one of Asia’s largest stretches of tiger habitat as well as elephants, rhinoceros, and swamp deer.
Nepal’s cultural landscape is as diverse as its physical one. Head to the capital, Kathmandu, where the showstopper is the UNESCO-listed Durbar Square - a huge complex filled with ancient palaces, temples, fountains, idols, statues, and courtyards. Also noteworthy is the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, and the hilltop Buddhist shrine Swayambhunath Stupa (also known as Monkey Temple) with its all-seeing eyes.
By contrast, beautiful lakeside Pokhara is the ‘Jewel of Himalayas’. With the Annapurna range as its backdrop, this paragliding paradise appeals with caves, ancient bazaars, serene lakes, and postcard-perfect mountain views. If that wasn’t enough, the awe-inspiring trek up to Annapurna Sanctuary will give you the chance to get up-close to mighty Annapurna, the world’s tenth highest mountain.
