What to expect in Nepal

Perched high on the rooftop of the world, Nepal is a country like no other. Located where the majestic snow-draped Himalayas meet the hot plains stretching up from Northern India, Nepal offers a multitude of experiences for the adventurous traveler. Visitors can spend weeks trekking the networks of mountain trails, or catch sight of a rhino or tiger at Chitwan National Park. Despite the poverty that impacts much of the country, the Nepalese people are warm and welcoming, generously sharing their time, hearts and awe-inspiring vistas.
