Kingdom of Nepal is one of the most diverse and beautiful
places on earth and it is rich in history home to more than 80
different groups of people and generally unaffected by the
modern ways of the western world. With the world's 10 highest
mountains, lush tropics, arctic tundra, high deserts,
compressed into 147,100 square km., there is always another
mesmerizing place for us to take you to quickly.
And unlike other Asian destinations, you can visit Nepal any
time of year.
If fascinating cities and ancient architecture is what you
seek, take a journey back in time to today's Kathmandu, the
Kingdom's capital and travel crossroads. Shop at its bazaars,
visit its countless temples, walk the grounds of ancient
palaces, or have a cup of tea at one of the many tea stands
that offers people watching like you have never known it. When
you're ready for something more rural, we can take you south
to the Terai, Nepal's agricultural home where farming is still
carried out by hand and fields plowed by ox and to Royal
Chitwan National Park where Bengal tigers, elephants and
rhinos rule the land.
Western Nepal is the most remote and least-known region of the
Kingdom, and of course, the Himalayas which separate Nepal
from neighboring India, Bhutan and Tibet. Nepal is among the
few countries in the world where Seven World Heritage Sites
are situated within 20 kms. of radius.
Nepal is 5 hours 45 minutes ahead of GMT & 15 minutes ahead of
Indian Standard Time.
