Tucked in the lap of the Himalayas, Nepal is a paradise for any nature lover! Home to the highest mountain peak in the world, Mt Everest, this landlocked country in the Indian subcontinent is covered with pristine beauty.

In contrast to its small size, the country boasts a treasure of about 500 species of birds and numerous reptiles and mammals. It is home to some of the most endangered animals of the region, including the tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, red panda, snow leopard and Gangetic river dolphin.

You could explore Chitwan National Park on elephant back or spot wild water buffaloes at Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve. Nepal is the ultimate destination for activities like river rafting, kayaking, trekking, biking and wildlife safaris.

The famed birthplace of Lord Buddha, Nepal is soaked in culture and heritage. This colorful country also has several palaces, temples and monasteries that are worth a visit.

You might consider visiting:
• The ancient citadel of Nuwakot
