Come to the true home of alpine trekking in the spectacular mountain kingdom of Nepal. Slip back in time to a place with no roads and join the locals as they hike from one perched village to another, where the only traffic jams come from yak convoys on suspended bridges. Sip yak butter tea as you gaze at a Buddhist gompa and experience the legendary hospitality of the Sherpas, or revel in the colorful chaos of Hindu shrines along the Annapurna circuit, a section of the Himalayas.
Watch the sun rise over the highest mountains on earth steeped in mountaineering lore and prayer flags. Whether you are in a blossoming rhododendron forest or stone-walled village, in Nepal you are blessed with a penthouse view on the roof of the world. Nepal boasts endless trekking experiences, including the unspoiled Kingdom of Mustang, the Annapurna Panorama, Langtang National Park, ancient pilgrims trails, and the famous Khumbu region where the tallest point on the planet lies, Mt Everest (27,940 ft). At the beginning and end of every trek, enjoy Kathmandu and explore Nepal’s deep ancient traditions by visiting Hindu and Buddhist shrines and temples.
For those who seek even more opportunities for adventure, head to Chitwan National Park and see tigers while riding on elephants. This park bordering India is a hidden gem to see tigers and a perfect extension to any trek. A truly rich Himalayan country, people, and experience!
