Nepal Holidays & Travel Facts

Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalayas, Nepal is where the ice-cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of India. It's a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas and some of the best trekking on earth. The Himalayas' cultures took shape here, in the three great mini-kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur – home to a world-class artistic and architectural heritage.
