The word "Nepal" conjures up all sorts of romantic images in the mind. Stunning mountains of the Himalayas, crowned by Everest, where the famous Sherpa people live is the obvious thought. The country is a lot more diverse than this of course. The Annapurna region invites you to a green, lush land, where the foothills of the Himalayas transform into the barren, high, upper reaches of the mountains within days of leaving civilization. Chitwan takes you the opposite direction. Fertile lowlands, home to wild elephants, rhinos and even tigers are ready to greet guests. Even Kathmandu, the sprawling Capital city, offers seven World Heritage Sites for you to explore. Whether you are looking for trekking, mountaineering, white water adventures or experiences rich in culture and history, Nepal has a lot to offer.
