Blessed with rich nature, the great Himalayan range stretches from Afghanistan to Burma, across Pakistan, Northern India, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. There are fourteen mountains above 8000 metres in the world, all of which lie in the Himalayan range. This is the source of many great glacial rivers, providing abundant live-giving water to much of Asia.
Nepal is the birthplace of Buddha (Light of Asia). Nestled among the gorgeous snow-capped ranges of the Himalayas, this wonderful creation of Mother Earth embraces eight of the world’s highest peaks: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Annapurna 1. Its special climate, its rich and colourful religions, a blend of Buddhist & Hindu culture, all combine to make it a truly unique country.

The golden age of exploration of the Himalayas, especially the early attempts on Everest in the 1920s and 1930s, had already attracted the world’s attention to Nepal, and the coronation of King Mahendra further opened the door to the outside world. Stories of the royal family hunting in the jungles of Chitwan, as well as books like ‘Tiger for Breakfast’ and many travel journals, documentaries and picture books published during that time, all enhanced the image of Nepal as an adventure travel destination and put it firmly on the world tourism map.
It is indeed true that Nepal is rich in enchanting culture and diversity, but it is the mighty Himalayas and particularly Everest that have been the centre of attention since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit on 29 May 1953, catching the spotlight of the world.
