Tibetan Flags, Annapurna Base Camp 4200m, Nepal


Nepal is a country offering incredible variety. Lush jungles creep in from the Indian plains and glacier-fed rivers swerve between rolling hills – and then, there’s the monumental Mount Everest.

At just 124 miles wide, Nepal is a small country; however, it encapsulates a varied terrain, from the Indian plain’s lush jungles to the soaring snow-capped heights of Everest at 8,848m. Between these two points, low stone villages nest in isolated valleys and rushing glacier-fed rivers chicane in this land of charmingly warm people.

What to expect on your Nepal holiday

The Nepalese people are fiercely proud and are committed to perfection in all things. Nowhere is this more obvious than when trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is nothing short of a miracle that you can wake to the smell of freshly-baked bread and eat toast and marmite for breakfast when you are miles from nowhere, and overlooking some of the most magnificent mountains in the world.

Mountains more to discover

But a holiday to Nepal is not just about trekking. There is river rafting, elephant conservation and the opportunity to spot the one-horned Indian rhinoceros, or possibly even a tiger.

Making a difference

Nepal is firmly back on the map and open for business again in a very big way. Nepal sits in the 5th position among the “ten destinations you cannot afford to miss” as declared by Lonely Planet. It is heartening to see Nepal firmly back on the radar for discerning travellers. Visitors are returning, length of stay is increasing and the enthusiasm of travellers for Nepal’s cultural riches and scenic beauty remains unquenched.

Kate Hitchen

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way.

Charlotte is the Conde Nast Traveller chosen Specialist for Asia.

My strong sense of belonging in Asia stemmed from a childhood in Hong Kong and Nepal. My Grandmother was born in a tent in India. Some of my clearest memories are of walking through a dense, tropical jungle while hailstones the size of cricket balls rained down on us; of being carried on my father’s shoulders as we trekked through the Himalayas; my mother wearing flipflops on a snowy mountainside; and me falling into Dal Lake in Srinagar as we disembarked from our houseboat.
