Nepal Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 58%, Nepal is - hands down - the world's premiere trekking destination. All you have to do is mention Everest Base Camp Trek and the Annapurna Circuit to bring to mind endless miles of winding trails through the tallest peaks in the world. The pristine and peaceful region prompts many to embrace their more "spiritual side". Before hitting the trail, most journeys begin with a stop in Kathmandu, one of the requisite destinations on the immortal "hippy trail". Here you'll find all the necessary gear for your overland adventures in Thamel, the perfect place to begin and end any trip into the mountains. But no one who comes to Nepal should make the mistake of thinking that trekking is the only pastime, when in fact riding is right up there at the top of the list as well. This can come in a variety of forms, including climbing aboard an elephant for a safari through Chitwan National Park, where chances are you might just spot a tiger, rhino, crocodiles and the elusive leopard. If you're itching to get back onto the road again, take a ride in a Land Cruiser and hit the Friendship Trail, one of the world's highest roads that will take you to the Tibetan border on a truly classic journey. Overall, Nepal is a place of movement. It's your choice, whether to walk, hop on a vehicle, or catch a ride on the back of an elephant!
