NEPAL

ABOUT NEPAL

Nepal is a mountainous country located between the arid Tibetan plateau and the hot fertile plains of India. The Nepal section of the Himalaya has eight of the world’s highest mountains including Mount Everest. Nepal is culturally diverse with a variety of ethnic groups and for many trekkers it is the warmth, hospitality and sense of humour of the Nepalese people that draw them back for repeat visits to this wonderful country.

Nepal is a landlocked country 800km long and 200km wide with its northern border along Tibet and southern border with India. The Himalaya mountain range dominates Nepal and contains eight of the world’s highest mountains: Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Makalu, Annapurna, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and of course Mount Everest. In this country altitude varies from 150m above sea level in the Terai on the border with India up to the summit of Everest at 8,848m. This range of altitude creates a unique environment with an incredible diversity of landscape, plants, birds, animals and people.

The Nepal Himalaya is the meeting point of Buddhist and Hindu religions. In Nepal over ninety per cent of the population is Hindu located in the south of the country and in the main cities however in the mountainous northern areas Buddhism is predominant. Many of the classic treks in Nepal take you on a journey between these religions where at higher altitudes you enter Buddhist Sherpa country with colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries.

Camping style is a fully supported trek where our cooks will cater for all of your meals. We provide group equipment including personal tents, mess tent, kitchen tent and toilet tent(s).
