NEPAL >>    

Nepal is a beautiful country situated between the Indian plain and Tibetan plateau. Nepal has the highest mountain in the world - Mount Everest at 8,848 m and yet has areas in the southern part of the country at only 70 m above sea level. This gives Nepal a huge variation in geology, climate and culture. Many visitors come to see mountains – and they are not disappointed as Nepal has eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. Nepal was the birthplace of Lord Buddha and is often thought of as a Buddhist country – but actually Buddhism (three traditions – Mahayana, Vajrayana and Theravada) is a minority faith with Hinduism being practiced by the majority (over 80%). Most Napalis do not distinguish the differences in the two faiths and follow both religious traditions. Nepal has a strong culture and history and has seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is also a great destination for wildlife enthusiasts as it has a wide range of fauna and flora and is home to almost 10% of the world’s bird species (500 of which may be found in the Kathmandu Valley). Until recently Nepal was a monarchy but mass protests in 2005 led to the abdication of the last Nepali monarch and the establishment of a federal
democratic republic. The first President of Nepal was sworn in on 23 July 2008.

Know Before You Go: to make an informed decision about the destination you are considering visiting citizens should take the advice of their respective governments. For British citizens that is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO website gives travel advice (health, safety, security etc) for every country. We recommend you look at this before booking any holiday and then again before departure. (
