A trek is an ideal way to see the country and to understand its people. To experience walking through emerald rice fields; through towering rhododendron forests; crossing streams, camping out on a hilltop in the wilderness surrounded by the world’s highest peaks is why many people come to Nepal. The two most popular treks are to the Everest Base Camp and the around the foothills of the Annapurna range.
Nepal also has amazing wildlife, seen up close on safari at places like Royal Chitwan National Park, where you can travel by elephant to see wild rhinoceros and tigers in their habitat. Nepalese art and architecture is captivating, attracting visitors to places like the medieval town of Bhakhtapur, with its intricately carved wooden houses, or to the dramatic Baudhanath Temple, with its massive white dome and thousands of brightly coloured prayer flags.
