Discover the dazzling heights of Nepal and the high Himalaya
With its majestic peaks, epic treks and traditional temples, the remote Kingdom of Nepal is as close to travel nirvana as it’s possible to get. For some, a Nepal holiday is a once-in-a-lifetime experience while there are many who keep coming back for more.
Containing more of the world's highest mountains than any other country, Nepal is dominated by the soaring peaks of the Himalaya. The Annapurna Range is a mecca for walkers while, for the serious trekker, Mustang remains the ultimate goal. Tranquil Pokhara in the foothills of sacred Mt. Macchapuchre affords access to three of the world's ten highest peaks, all within a mere 30 miles. But, while Everest may be the ultimate physical challenge, you don't have to be a mountaineer to appreciate its, or the country’s, majesty.
The staggering beauty of the region is a powerful draw for those looking for peace, solitude and a gentler pace. Explore the forests of Chitwan National Park and you may be rewarded with glimpses of endangered species like the Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, leopard and sloth bear. And find inner serenity away from Kathmandu's bustling streets, in the ancient temples of Durbar Square at dusk.
