Nepal

Last updated: 27 November 2017
Situated between Tibet and India, Nepal is best known for hikes and climbs up the Himalayan Mountains to the world’s highest peak Mount Everest, but it is also great for paragliding and is one of the most popular rafting destinations in the world.

The landscape of Nepal is beautiful and varied. It includes sub tropical forests and mountain top glaciers. The Chitwan National Park boasts rhino and Bengal tigers amongst the resident wildlife, and is one of the best parks for viewing game in Asia.  

The forested and mountainous countryside has beautiful tranquil lakes lined with colorful canoes. Waterfalls and crashing glacial white river waters make this land a rafter’s delight.
