Famed for its staggeringly beautiful mountains and ancient traditions, Nepal still remains an enigma to most outsiders. That’s a shame; the amazing architectural marvels of the Pashupatinath Temple and the holy cities of Boudhanath and UNESCO-protected Bhaktapur rank among some of humanity’s greatest creations. This trip unravels the mysteries of this incredible land of ancient secrets and towering mountains by taking you up into the mountains, down unexplored nature paths in search of rhino in Chitwan National Park and into Gurung villages to see how the locals have lived for centuries.
