Nepal is a place full of friendly, welcoming people as well as beautiful architecture. Since the earthquake, Kathmandu is gradually rebuilding itself and is still a beautiful destination. There’s plenty of shopping potential too, with singing bowls, pottery and colourful woven carpets all popular souvenirs. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can venture to Everest.
The presence of the world’s tallest mountain has made Nepal something of an extreme sports haven. The stunning surroundings of the Himalayas make for quite a backdrop.
“Kollywood” is the nickname for the small local film industry. Geographically and culturally cut off from the world until around 1950, Nepal has only opened up recently. Wedged between India and Pakistan, as well as being a buffer to China, Nepal is of ever-increasing strategic importance.

The perfect destination for those who are seeking a true authentic experience. The neverending list of adventurous journeys to embark on make it a wonderful country to discover if you love exploring new places.

What Everyone Does In Nepal
A trip to Kathmandu is a must. If you like learning about new cultures then Kathmandu is the perfect place with its unique Buddhist temples. If you can’t wait to get stuck into something adventurous then Kathmandu is famous for having an excellent white water rafting experience.
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. We wouldn’t recommend it!
