Flights to Nepal
What to know before you fly to Nepal?
While Mount Everest is justifiably famous as the highest mountain in the world; Nepal is actually home to ten of the highest peaks on the planet. As such this is a hiker's paradise with stunning trails that traverse throughout jaw-dropping scenery - there is certainly more to the country than just heading to Base Camp. Aside from Everest, other important trekking regions include Annapurna and Langtang. A great way of enjoying the countryside is what has been dubbed tea-house trekking - this is where lodges provide you with everything for the night and to prepare you for the next exhilarating day.
For travellers who'd like a different Nepalese experience, consider taking a rafting trip on one of the country's beautiful rivers including the Bhote Koshi, Sun Kosi and the Kali Gandaki. There are tour companies that will arrange the expedition for you - many start from either Kathmandu or Pokhara.
After experiencing the natural beauty of the country, return to the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu for some city based sight-seeing. The big ticket attractions include the Swayambhu, the Narayanhiti Palace Museum and the Garden of Dreams. Also on the list must be Durbar Square, a beautiful historic square that's surrounded by incredible architecture.
