Stunning snowy summits, world heritage sites, timeless traditions, ancient festivals, quaint hill villages, wonderful wildlife and languid lakes, Nepal has something for everyone.
The grandeur of the Himalayas is what draws thousands of visitors to Nepal every year. However, this tiny landlocked country has a lot more to offer than the highest mountains in the world. Nepal is home to 101 ethnic groups and sub-groups that speak more than 90 different languages. Ancient streets, centuries-old monuments and medieval palace squares of Kathmandu valley stand in testament to the country's rich history and cultural and artistic heritage. Traditional villages in the high mountains, hills and valleys not only provide respite from the hectic lifestyle of the cities but also present opportunities for meaningful cultural engagements. Protected and well managed national parks and wildlife reserves are teeming with rare wildlife such as the Bengal Tiger, snow leopard and one-horned rhino and exotic bird species.
