WELCOME TO HEAVEN ON EARTH!
Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and altitude variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60 meters above sea level to the highest point on earth, the Mount Everest at 8,848 meters, all within a distance of 150 kilometres resulting in climatic conditions from sub-tropical to artic. This wild variation fosters an incredible variety of ecosystems, the greatest mountain range on earth, thick tropical jungles teeming with a wealth of wildlife, thundering rivers, forested hills and frozen valleys.
Within this spectacular geography is also one of the richest cultural landscapes. The country has ethnic groups and sub-groups who speak over 93 languages and dialects.
Nepal offers an astonishing diversity of sightseeing attractions and adventure opportunities found nowhere else on earth. And you can join in the numerous annual festivals that are celebrated throughout the year in traditional style highlighting the enduring customs and beliefs.
