Nepal is a diverse, developing country, geographically located between China and India. To the north you will find the highest mountains in the world, including the world famous Mount Everest. To the south, rice fields, grasslands and dense jungle can be found. Here is where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the elusive tiger. A 2022 survey revealed there are now 355 individual tigers in Nepal, an increase of 190% since 2009.
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, with about 25% of the population living below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day. There is however, considerable potential for tourism and hospitality. Having a better education, with a good understanding of English will enable the Nepali people to tap into this resource and one day find their way out of poverty.
Nepal is one of those destinations that should be on everyone’s wish list of places to visit. They say in Nepal “once is not enough” as you have to visit Nepal more than once to appreciate how much the country and people have to offer.
Whether it’s visiting the many temples of Kathmandu, taking an elephant safari through the steaming hot jungles of the Terai, or marvelling at the snow-white peaks of the Himalaya, there is always plenty to see and do. My aim is to make Nepal the go to adventure travel and holiday destination.
If you are thinking about visiting Nepal and have the time, why not consider one of our homestay programmes for part of your trip. Homestay provides a different type of travel experience. It allows you to see the country from a ‘non-tourist’ perspective. We have two homestay programmes, one in the mountains and one in the jungle. We arrange tailor made packages that include homestay, combined with mountain trekking, jungle safari, paragliding, rafting and yoga and meditation retreats. Book today
