Nepal is a destination with an unbeatable combination of nature, culture, and adventure; the destination of infinite charm and diversity thus one must step at least once in the lifetime. This is where one finds the heaven in earth. It is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its geographical position and altitudinal variation. The wild variation fosters an incredible variety of ecosystems, the greatest mountain range on earth, thick tropical teeming with the wealth of wildlife, thundering rivers, forested hills and the frozen valleys. Nepali has yet another identity, a country rich in historical legend and cultural heritage. It has many uncommon and unique festivals that hold significant values and meanings. As diverse as the land, the people of Nepal represent distinct cultures and races, speaking a variety of tongues and practicing different religions. A delightful similarity is that they all speak the language of courtesy, and the hospitality is a national culture. Indeed, the breath taking biotic diversity of Nepal is mirrored by the equally diverse population whose rich cultural heritage colors this nation with festivals and rituals and a piety the level of which is matched by few places on this earth. This piety, revolving around a unique synthesis of Hinduism and Buddhism, is reflected in the many artistic temples and monuments its people have built. This peaceful Himalayan Kingdom is thus an adventurer's paradise, a naturalist's dream, and a living ethnographic museum.
The Kathmnadu Valley, the political, commercial and cultural hub of Nepal, is your first major stop. Here we will tour the three fabled cities of Kathmandu. Patan and Bhaktapur, each a living museum of artistic temples, magnificent palaces, museums, brick-paved courtyards and quaint streets.
This is the first entry point if you need to ascend a peak or embark on a strenuous climbing to enjoy the mountain experience. Looking at the celestial beauty of the Himalayas sometimes you get the feel that everything divine one can imagine on the earth exists there. So I would say-no matter what you seek in the Himalayas, be it a challenge or peace, spiritual insight or complete relaxation, you are sure to find it there. Nepalese are very proud to say that this country contains more of the world's highest mountains than any other country does. The total length of the Nepal Himalayas measures roughly about 800 kilometers. Some of its best known peaks include Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest), Makalu, Manaslu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Annapurna, and of course Dhaulagiri. They are all 8000 m high above sea level.
Quite a panorama to marvel at Hindu mythology rightly describes the Himalayas as the abode of gods. A Nepalese poet describes the splendor of the same Himalayas in a bit different way
"As the dew drop is dried up, by the morning sun so are the sins of mankind, by the sight of the Himalayas."
Trekking through different parts of Nepal is the best way to experience the country's natural beauty and cultural riches. We will walk together and experience the immense contrasts in altitude and climates, which support an equally spectacular variety of lifestyles and flora and fauna. Walking through this idyllic scenery with the towering Himalayas as a backdrop makes for an unforgettable adventure.

If one's time doesn't permit for any adventurous activities then, we will take you to destinations in and around the Valley rim form where you get breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks. The most popular hill resorts include Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Kakani and Daman.
Or come with us on a pilgrimage to Lumbini, the hallowed birthplace of Lord Buddha. This nativity site is not only of great religious importance to the more than 300 million-strong Buddhists of the world but also of equal historical, cultural and archaeological significance.
Then let us take you to Pokhara, a tranquil city nestled in an enchanting valley about 2000 km west of Kathmandu.
