Other destinations in Nepal
Locked between the snow peaks of the Himalayas
and the seething Ganges plain, Nepal has long been home to wandering ascetics and tantric yogis. Consequently, the country has a wealth of sacred sites and natural wonders:
Annapurna — popular trekking region of Nepal with the world-famous Annapurna Circuit
Chitwan National Park — see tigers, rhinos and animals in the jungle
Daman — tiny village in the mountains offering panoramic views of the Himalayas; especially stunning at sunrise and sunset
Haleshi (Tibetan: Maratika) — the site of a mountain cave where Padmasambhava attained a state beyond life and death
Lumbini — the sacred site of the Buddha Shakyamuni's birth
Mount Everest — the tallest peak of the world in the Khumbu region
Nagarkot — a hill station one hour from Kathmandu offering excellent views of the Himalayan Range
Parping — the site of several sacred caves associated with Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism
Tangting— a beautiful and undiscovered traditional Gurung village with a stunning view of the Annapurna range
