Situated in the central Himalaya Nepal encompasses some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. Adventurers have long been enticed by the lure of the world's highest mountains. However, the Himalaya is not just a chain of mountains, but a complex tapestry of natural & cultural landscapes. A land truly of disparate cultures, extremes of climate and unusual biological diversity. Nepal's rivers, headwaters to the Ganges cascade down gorges and course through enthralling countryside, verdant fields, thick clumps of forests and villages trapped in time. The Kingdom abounds with temples emblazoned with art conceived from centuries old oriental religions and cultures.
