Nepal Culture & Wildlife
Nepal has an irresistible mystical allure for travellers. Trekkers from all over the world are drawn here for its most iconic and accessible hiking trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond. For those who prefer a gentler pace, can admire the peaks over a gin and tonic from a Himalayan viewpoint or visit the temple-lined medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Further south lie Nepal’s wildlife parks, where nature buﬀs scan the treetops for exotic bird species and comb the jungles for rhinos and tigers from the backs of lumbering Indian elephants. Stay at Tiger Tops Resort.
