Nepal

Standing at the "Roof of the World,” Nepal is probably best known for being home to eight of the world’s ten highest mountains, including the incomparable Mount Everest, the loftiest of them all. This small Himalayan country, surrounded by China, India and Bhutan, is stunningly beautiful, with some of the planet’s most picturesque mountain scenery. Over 80 percent of Nepal’s people practice the Hindu religion, making it, along with Bali, the only Hindu nation in the world outside of India (Buddhism also maintains a strong influence however). Nepal’s monarchy was dissolved in May of 2008 and replaced with a federalized, multi-party republic.

Remote Lands is eager to take you trekking and climbing but also to show you some of the country’s other incredible features such as the Swayambhunath Temple in Kathmandu, an elephant safari to see one-horned rhinos in the Chitwan National Park, adventure sports in Pokhara which include ultra-lites, paragliding, the world’s highest zipline - which comes with the amazing backdrop of the Himalayas - trekking the Everest region, helicoptering to the Everest base camp, tackling the Annapurna trail, and seeking out the isolated Kingdom of Mustang and the spectacular ancient cities of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Patan.
