Nepal is a country that leaves a profound impact on everyone who ventures within its mountain-ensconced realms. From the ancient religious sites of Kathmandu, Muktinath and Pokhara to the breathtaking natural architecture of the Himalayas – and, of course, the highest mountain in the world – it’s not hard to see why.
This is a land of striking contrasts. The cacophony of downtown Kathmandu sits in perfect parallel to the utter serenity of the spectacular Himalayan peaks, where you can hike for hours with nothing but the gently fluttering prayer flags adorning the trails.
There are countless incredible treks in Nepal just waiting to be explored. Perhaps the famous Mount Everest Base Camp trek has always held pride of place on your travel bucket list, or you fancy ticking off the “best long-distance trek in the world”: the Annapurna Circuit – here is where you will find your calling. Or, you could even climb Himalayan summit, be it Island Peak or the formidable Ama Dablam.
Whether you’re looking for adrenaline-inducing trekking adventures or an introspective hike in unrivalled scenery, Nepal is a mountain lover’s heaven.
