Many people are surprised to learn that southern Nepal – just 25 minutes by plane from Kathmandu – is sub-tropical with palm trees and lush jungles. Chitwan National Park is perhaps the single greatest wildlife safari destination in Asia. The meltwaters from the Himalayas create the Terai, and in it reside Bengal Tigers, Indian Leopard and the remarkable One-Horned Rhinoceros, known as the Unicorn of the Rhino world, or Rhinoceros unicornis (really). Stay in the luxury Taj Meghauli Serai on the banks of the Rapti River and marvel at Nepal’s biodiverse wonderland.

Stay in Pokhara at the Lost Horizon Hotel and Spa, a newly opened SLH property on the lovely Begnas Lake. End your journey in Jomsom at the new Moksha Mustang which brings a higher end hotel option to this remote town.
Mustang the Easy Way
Normally a seven-day trek or multi-day drive on rough roads, travelers can instead fast-track their way into the former Himalayan Kingdom of Mustang by taking a helicopter from Jomsom or Kathmandu. Ride through charming far-flung villages on horseback where the locals rarely see tourists, take in spectacular mountain views, and even meet a member of Mustang royalty from the previous Kingdom of Lo.
