What some people do in Nepal
Chitwan National Park has a specific part of the park dedicated to elephant breeding. This centre is around 3km west of Sauraha. Get up close to these majestic animals and watch the fascinating interaction between the mothers and their babies.
What no one else does in Nepal
Quite a few people make it to Everest Base camp, but climbing the tallest mountain in the world is really a task for those who have been in serious training and are mentally and physically unbreakable! With oxygen levels at almost 40% less than what they are at sea-level this climb is extreme.
