Adventure & Cultural Immersion

Nepal Vacations

Beautiful in every way.

Nepal is famous for the Himalayas, the great mountain system of Asia whose glaciated heights and ethereal beauty draw tourists from all over the world. Those who've been to Nepal will also speak of the beauty of its culture, architecture, and people.

The landlocked country is exciting and serene in equal measure. Its mountain ranges and lakes create stunning vistas, beckoning adventurers and nature lovers alike. The Himalayas are home to resorts and a hotspot for treks, mountain climbing, paragliding, and ziplining. Nepal's breathtaking lakes and rivers are soothing to the eyes and mind.

The adventure and nature gazing continue at Nepal's national parks. There are 12 in all, with Chitwan being the most popular due to its proximity to Kathmandu, Nepal's capital city. The park is home to the largest population of wild Bengal tigers in the world, elephants, leopards, rare one-horned rhinos, and over 500 bird species.

The country is also rich in man-made beauty. Seven of its religious monasteries and historical sites are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Among them, the Lumbini is arguably the world's most important Buddhist pilgrimage site. Kathmandu's Durbar Square is a remnant of the old kingdoms of Nepal.

Nepal is a gourmand's delight. Nepalese dishes are aromatic and flavourful, some intensely and others delicately spicy. A large portion of the population here follows a strictly vegetarian diet in keeping with the tenets of Buddhism. You'll have a chance to enjoy wholesome vegetarian dishes alongside delicious meaty ones.

Nepalese people are warm and friendly, with a strong dedication to hospitality and respect. You'll feel like a cherished guest when exploring their lovely nation for yourself.

The Culture

Nepal is a culturally diverse country having over a hundred ethnic groups. More than 120 languages are spoken in the country. The majority of the population practices Hinduism, with Buddhism being the second most popular religion. The dhaka topi (hat) is a symbol of Nepalese nationality and is worn by men.

Nepal has a rich tradition of folk and classical dances. Different ethnic groups and tribes perform their own dances during festivals and family occasions. According to Hindu mythology, the beloved Hindu god Shiva performed his cosmic dance in the Himalayas.

The major festivals celebrated here are Buddha Jayanti, the birthday of Gautam Buddha, Dashain, a festival celebrating the victory of goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura, and Maha Shivaratri, a festival dedicated to Lord Shiva, on which locals smoke charas, handmade cannabis. The Nepalis also believe in ghosts and supernatural beings, and practice tantric and shamanic techniques.

Handicraft production is an age-old practice in Nepal. The country has a thriving handicraft export market. The handicraft industry helps in preserving the heritage and culture of the country, while also providing employment opportunities and helping alleviate poverty. The most popular handicraft product is the pashmina, a soft and delicate fibre collected from the mountain goats in the Upper Himalayas, and made into shawls, scarves, and sweaters.
