Nepal - Travel Information
Nepal, landlocked between China and India, is not only home to the highest mountain in the world, the deepest gorge, abundant rivers, temples and palaces, but is also home to a rich and diverse ethnic culture. Home to the brave Gurkhas, and the legendary Sherpas, cultures steeped in rich traditions, Nepal personifies the genuine warmth of the smiling Nepalese.
One of the youngest republics in the world, Nepal offers incredible opportunities for adventure in its diverse terrain from the high Himalaya to the plains, forming the Tarai belt. The cultural traditions that are an inherent part of Nepali life can be explored and participated in.
Kathmandu, the country's capital and largest city simultaneously emanates of history and the wear and tear of increasing modernity. The tightly packed historical centre, with its squares and temples, continues to preserve a world light years away from the shanty towns, expensive hotels, restaurants and shops on the city's outskirts.
Kathmandu is really two cities: a fabled capital of convivial pilgrims and carved rose-brick temples and an amazing urban sprawl including monkeys and beggars. The sights are heavily clustered in the old part of town. Creativity and patience are required to navigate the city's narrow, often unmarked streets, but if you lose your way, simply ask a passerby for directions.
As climbing Mount Everest is for the very few, there is another way to get to the top. A one-hour flight seeing tour from Kathmandu not only gives a bird’s eye view of Everest but also of many other breathtaking snow-capped mountain peaks.
