Located along the Himalayas, Nepal combines outstanding scenery with a rich Hindu and Buddhist culture. Despite a ten-year civil war that killed thousands and ravaged rural Nepal, Nepal has remained an outdoors paradise for visitors.

Legendary Kathmandu has been popular with tourists since its inclusion on the “hippie trail” in the 1960s. It contains a diverse variety of Hindu and Buddhist temples and full of intriguing sights and sounds. Durbar Square - a complex of shrines, temples and palaces (including the huge Hanuman Dhoka) - is the heart of the city. The tourist district of Thamel is filled with backpackers and makes for a good base to make contacts and explore the surrounding city.

Rafters will appreciate the many rivers of Nepal. These include the remote Class III-V Karnali, the lengthy and large volume Class III-IV+ Sun Kosi (the River of Gold) and the popular and shorter Class III-IV Kali Gandaki. All offer exhilarating experiences amidst beautiful scenery.

There are stunning long-distance hikes through the Himalayas, offering stunning mountain and valley scenery. Two of the most popular hikes include one to Everest Base Camp where you can mingle with mountaineers preparing for the climb and the Annapurna Sanctuary, with its tremendous views as hikers trek through the glacier basin.

Lower down in the Terai, the Royal Chitwan National Park contains sub-tropical riches including tigers and Asian rhinos (approximately 1/4th of the world’s Asian rhino population). Hop aboard an elephant to take a ride around the park.

Bhaktapur is a museum, a movie set and another world all at the same time. Built from red brick with intricately carved wooden structures, temples, lively markets, narrow lane ways and flaming colours are an overload on your senses. Perfect for experiencing true Nepali life in an unspoiled Nepali city, Bhaktapur is the most memorable city. Bhaktapur is the religious heart of Nepal, where the people rise at 3 o'clock every morning to pray. If you're staying the night, you too will be woken up, to the sound of bells ringing all over the city. The town is World Heritage listed and is home to Nepal's tallest temple, Nyatapol Temple standing 30 metres tall.

Patan is the sistercity of Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, and one of the 3 royal cities in Nepal (Kathmandu, Patan and Bakhtapur). The whole Kathmandu valley is really worth a visit, although the air quality is not the best. There is a lot to see: from old palaces to stupas and cremation areas, where the dead are burnt. Good Nepali food and very cheap. Even though there were quite a few security issues, the place is nonetheless safe to travel, above all since the political situation completely changed.
