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
