Explore Nepal. Astonishing mountain scenery
For anyone who loves the mountains, a trek through the Nepalese Himalayas is a must. You will see some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world. The world’s highest mountain range defines everything in Nepal, from its topography and its weather to its religion and trade.
Nepal sets the global standard for spectacular, hassle-free trekking, especially in the tea house trekking regions of Everest and the Annapurnas. Nowhere else can you hike for weeks into the very heart of a mountain range, and at the end of the day you can sleep in a clean bed and eat a hot meal. Trekking in Nepal is very accessible.
Nepal’s impressive mountains are complemented by its superb trek staff – porters, guides and trekking agencies like ours – who can take you off the beaten trek to high-altitude camps at the base of 8000m peaks or over 5000m passes into remote and timeless areas of Tibetan culture. The rich culture and customs of Nepal’s mountain people and their good humor and hospitality are as attractive as the peaks themselves.
As the slogan goes, one trip to Nepal is rarely enough. If you’ve seen Everest or the Annapurnas, try a trek through Langtang or go the forbidden Kingdom of Upper Mustang, and once you’ve done those, head out to remote Dolpo or Kanchenjunga at the far ends of the country. It’s definitely a great way to spend a couple of weeks of your life.
Discover Nepal. Much more nature & adventure.
The mountains are only a part of Nepal. The core of the country consists of a low mountain range. You`ll see huge inclines, valleys with steep walls and farmers villages between terraced fields. Between these enormous hills the cities Kathmandu and Pokhara are located.
The most southern part is the Terai: steep farm land with pieces of jungle, which are protected in three national parks: Royal Chitwan National Park, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve and Bardia National Park.
At right angles of the structure of the land the great wild rivers are flowing from North to South, carrying plenty of minerals and remains of the gletsjers. The source of the widest rivers is in Tibet and they cut through the Himalayan mountains. Some of these streams are perfect for wild waters sports, like rafting, canyoning and kayaking.
Meet Nepal. Get to know the Nepalis.
The Nepalis have a very good international reputation: they manage to combine kindness and willfulness with politeness and severity. They are people who are great to get to know and with whom it is a pleasure travelling.
Nepalis are very fond of children and very curious to meet Western kids. Not only will your kids or teenagers enjoy being in the centre of attention of the locals, perhaps they even make some Nepalese friends of their own.
Experience Nepal. Beautiful culture & ancient traditions.
The culture of Nepal is a diverse as its nature. In Nepal there are dozens of different ethnic groups. People live in highpopulated cities with lots of hindu tempels, in green terraced villages with rice fields and in small villages in the highlands build around buddhistic monasteries.
The religious practices go from Indian hinduism to Tibetan buddhism and from nature worship to sjamanism.The indigenous Newari population mixes all these traditions with their own intense tantric rituals.
The cultural richness in Nepal is thanks to the fact that Nepal has never been colonised. Nepal is a land with deep national and etnic pride, where the have a big tendency to celebrate their magnificent festivals with a lot of display and with a very strong attachment to traditions.
