Trekking in Nepal

Things to do in Nepal

A tiny mountain nation offering a diverse array of experiences and activities, Nepal is a mystical place where devout spirituality and ancient culture are set against the dramatic backdrop of some of the world's highest peaks.

Explore the country's rich heritage with a visit to the Changu Narayan Temple in Bhaktapur or a stay in a characterful tea house as you trek through the Annapurna region. Go in search of the one-horned rhino in Chitwan National Park or experience Nepal's remarkable setting on a scenic flight over the Himalaya. Or, raft down the Seti River, which offers access to some of the most remote parts of the country.
