Often referred to as the Shangri-la of Asia- it is the most beautiful and stunning Himalayan country in the world. Situated between two huge nations India and China, while bordering with Tibet is small in size, it is known in the world as a nation of colour, nature, culture and adventure. With mountains steeped in local legend and unique culture which has been cultivated over years of isolation, Nepal has long attracted the attention of broadened minds. Its legacy ranges from the lore of Kathmandu as a 1960s Hippie Trail enclave, to meditative retreat to trekking mecca. Combined with storybook temples, smiling locals and bold coloured textiles, Nepal is your ultimate dream destination.
