Today the legacy of this is evident in the vibrant and diverse culture of the capital, where visitors will find cremations at Shree Pashupatinath, the buzzing whirlwind of Durbar Square, and the mighty Boudhanath.

• Rhinos, Tigers, and Deer: Chitwan National Park deserves its reputation as one of the best wildlife safaris in Asia, where visitors can go trekking for tigers and spot rhinos from a 4WD.

• Pokhara: Enjoy sunrise over the Annapurna Himalayas. Pokhara is the home of adventure sports in Nepal, where travelers can paraglide, zipline, and even take an ultralight aircraft over one of the most picturesque cities in North Asia.
