The highest mountains. The steamiest jungles. World-class palaces and shrines. You’ll find Nepal to be a spiritual connection between heaven and earth. Nowhere else will you see such a concentration of UNESCO world heritage sites as in the Kathmandu Valley, including Lumbini, the birth place of Buddha.

In the north are eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, including Everest, the highest point on earth. For many, a bucket-list favorite is the trek to the Everest base camp. And all the while enjoying the most fantastic mountain scenery as the backdrop to your day.

On the other end of Nepal’s color spectrum are its national parks, where you can indulge in a luxury safari scouting for rhinos, tigers and exotic birdlife.

In between are endless medieval cities of temples, shrines and spiritual sites. Nepal is the cultural center of this region and offers curious travelers like you a lifetime of possibilities to explore and return to. There is no end to the adventures you’ll experience in this land of monasteries, Sherpas and smiling faces.
