A must-stop on the hippie trail in the 1960s, Nepal, home to eight of the world’s 10 tallest mountains, is still providing the discerning traveller with unforgettable highs.
If tackling Everest isn’t your thing, you will find challenges and inspiration aplenty elsewhere in this magical country. Tradition and modernity live cheek by jowl, with the bustling city of Kathmandu giving way to the foothills of Lumbini –the birthplace of the Buddha – and the spectacular monasteries, trails and passes that dot and criss-cross the world’s second-highest nation (nearby Bhutan tops the list). It is packed with UNESCO World Heritage sites, from Swayambhunath temple to the Chitwan national park, where you can spy rhino and Bengal tigers. As you watch the monastic prayer flags flutter against the bluest Himalayan sky, you will be offering up your own vote of thanks.
Whether you choose to visit Nepal on its own or to combine it with a trip to neighbouring India and Bhutan, allow Tailored Journeys to be your sherpa.
