Showcasing some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes, Nepal is home to ten of the world’s highest mountain peaks including the world-renowned Mount Everest.
A rugged mountain kingdom, stretching over the Himalaya Mountains, Nepal offers an astonishingly diverse array of attractions and landscapes. With its vast range of altitudes, Nepal is home to an incredible variety of plant and animal species, including more than 300 species of orchid. With over 800 bird varieties, it accounts for almost 10% of the world’s avian species.
Adventure tourism in Nepal dates back to the early attempts to scale the world’s highest peaks. It has come a long way since. While trekking, mountaineering and game viewing have long been popular, an entire range of adventure possibilities have erupted. Now, travellers to Nepal can enjoy excursions such as rafting, biking, fishing, rock climbing, paragliding, hot air ballooning, boating, canyoneering and bungee jumping.
