Nepal

Being situated at the transition zone between the Eastern and Western Himalayas coupled with tremendous altitudinal variation has made Nepal a remarkably diverse country. Indeed, it is pleasantly shocking to learn that the land known for its treks up Mount Everest is also a haven for such emblematic mammals as the Asian Elephant, Royal Bengal Tiger, Greater One-horned Rhinoceros and 800 bird species, including the Great Indian Hornbill. Here we offer supported lodge-to-lodge treks, one of which takes you to Everest’s base camp, another to the base of Annapurna. Hiking trails are available for all levels of ability. Those seeking cultural treasures will enjoy the world-class artistic and architectural heritage in the ancient kingdoms of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley where the Himalaya’s most sophisticated urban cultures developed. The birthplace of Buddha is here, at Lumbini, and the spirituality that radiates from this special place pervades the entire country.
