The Himalayas run through Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, China, Nepal and Bhutan, forming a 2400 km chain of majestic mountains, glaciers, gorges and deep valleys. Home to the 10 highest peaks on the planet, the Himalayas are awe-inspiring,
Nepal claims almost one-third of the Himalayas to its name, with some 800 kms of peaks and mountains within its borders, including the eight highest mountains in the world. Nepal is unbeatable as a trekking destination: the Himalayan Giants make sure of that.
With over 125 ethnic groups, 123 languages and 5 different religions, Nepal is also culturally diverse. Intricate festivals, colorful rituals, intricate customs and authentic flavors make Nepal a uniquely compact destination, with much to see and experience in every square kilometer.
The Nepalese travel industry is dusting itself off and smartening up in anticipation of new arrivals amidst renewed confidence among travelers. The infrastructure is in place, the porters are keen to get back to work, the hotels and restaurants itching to get more people to walk in through their doors; the industry is waiting with bated breath.
With the onset of spring, Nepal enters its second peak trekking season. Between the beginning of monsoon, for the few hot and clear months of March, April and May, there is much to do in the Himalayas. Go now to take advantage of the quieter trails before tourists with selfie sticks create traffic jams in single trails. Support the people of Nepal and enjoy their warm and grateful hospitality, while enjoying a good-value holiday in the lap of the Himalayas.
