The capital Kathmandu is surprisingly cosmopolitan given its remote location as decades of international climbing parties, backpackers and trekkers drawn by the mountain trails have left their indelible stamp on the city. The modern part of Kathmandu boasts a fine selection of restaurants and bars, but the heart of the city feels resolutely older with winding lanes, grand temples and palaces that feel unchanged since Medieval times.
The city is the jumping off point for most adventure holidays in Nepal with rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, canyoning, rock climbing, ballooning and even paragliding on offer.
Undoubtedly though the main draw for most is the trekking in the Himalayas and whether you test yourself on two week trek to Mount Everest Base Camp or simply dip your toe in with a day trek from Pokhara, you will be awe-struck by their majesty.
The Everest and Annapurna regions deliver some of the finest scenery on the planet, from high passes and dramatic valleys to an incredible variety of terrains, all in the shadow of some of the world’s highest peaks.
If you’re a little shorter on time, a week long trek up the Langtang Valley will get you away from the crowds passing through tiny villages and sparsely populated valleys and yet still delivers superlative views of the Ganesh Himal. There's even the chance to take a side trip up to the holy lakes of Gosinkund, site of a famous pilgrimage in August.
If perhaps even a week on the trail seems a little strenuous, the lake side town of Pokhara offers stunning mountain views and can also make a comfortable base for short treks. Poon Hill, reached on a six day loop delivers one of the finest panoramas in the Himalayas with uninterrupted views of Annapurna South and Machhapuchhare.
In Chitwan you can track rhinos, leopards, elephants and crocodiles and if you are exceptionally lucky you may catch a glimpse of the royal Bengal tiger.
