Nepal’s capital city is fascinating to explore and is full of intriguing places. From the cuisine of the Newari restaurants to beautiful architecture in Durbar Square, a day in Kathmandu is a must for anyone visiting Nepal. There’s the Tibetan temple at Bodhnath and the huge complex at Swayambhunath. Or you can relax in a rooftop café and watch the world go by.

Chitwan National Park

Nepal has many species of wildlife and one of the best places to see them is at Chitwan National Park. Take an elephant safari to see tiger, Indian Rhino and many more animals. Gharials and dolphins are also seen on the Rapti river here.

Everest Base Camp

The world’s most famous mountain is in Nepal and the trek to Base Camp a classic route. If it seems like too long a walk there are treks in the Himalayan foothills where glimpses of the Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse peaks can be seen. Taking a flight over the Himalayas is another way of seeing these beautiful mountains.
