Nepal holidays are breath-taking – both in terms of the soaring mountains and snowy scenery, and the altitude! Nepal’s majestic mountains are the highest mountains in the world. Nepal gives travellers the chance to stand among the Himalayas and contemplate the enormity of the snow-capped mountains, and of life. Keen hikers can trek to Everest base camp, at an elevation of 5,364 metres above sea level. Along the way you’ll trek through Sherpa villages, stumble upon tea houses and monasteries, and lose count of the colourful prayer flags dotted along the 65 kilometre journey from Lukla to Everest Base Camp. Aside from the Himalayas, Nepal’s natural wonders will leave a lasting impression on visitors. Whether it’s a safari in the Chitwan National Park seeking to spot Royal Bengal tigers, or exploring Kathmandu Valley, an adventure of a lifetime awaits you in Nepal.
