Home of the highest peaks on earth, the nation of Nepal rests between India and China, on the Himalayan mountain range. This land of soaring summits is, for obvious reasons, one of the world’s most popular destinations for trekking, hiking and mountain climbing, though also offering many other thrills like rafting, motorcycling and jungle safaris in its contrasting low tropical valleys.
The less adventurous can also indulge in more laidback activities by soaking in all the culture and breath-taking views of the natural surroundings.
With such an inspiring and diverse natural setting, it is no wonder that Nepal has such a rich and strong spiritual heritage. Pilgrims from all over the world flock to ancient city squares and engage on spiritual journeys within the surrounding monasteries, stupas, temples, palaces and shrines found throughout the capital city Kathmandu and its valley.
