Nepal

Extraordinary natural beauty and great diversity with fast flowing rivers, verdant valleys, sub-tropical jungle and those mesmerising mountains.

The remote mountain Kingdom of Nepal contains more of the world’s highest mountains than any other country and is dominated by the soaring snow-covered peaks of the Himalayas. Its magic is indescribable and boasts extraordinary natural beauty and great diversity with fast flowing rivers, verdant valleys, sub-tropical jungle and those mesmerising mountains.
