Aside from being home to eight of the world's tallest peaks, including the iconic Mount Everest, Nepal also boasts a rich and complex culture - customs and traditions vary from one region to another, and discovering its intricacies is a journey in itself. From the capital, we are instantly immersed in a kaleidoscope of culture blending to form one unique identity. The capital Kathmandu is bustling and full of life, having served at the country's cultural hub since its unification in the 18th century.
Then from the city, we dive into nature. Nepal is a mountaineer's paradise. Many may flock here to attempt the challenge of the world's highest mountain, but many parts, parks and trails remain mostly untouched, notably the natural wonders of forests home to a range of exotic wildlife. Let the sherpas be your guides, protectors and friends as you explore the strikingly beautiful landscape on foot. the country is also a centre for spirituality, and here is where we connect, from learning the backstory of a 14th century stupa to meeting with a Sadhu in Pashupatinath.
