Situated between the Indus Valley plains and the Himalayan mountain ranges, you will find the little spiritual kingdom of Nepal. The country is one of the poorest, but the generosity, warmth and joy of the Nepalese people is what touches your heart. In Nepal, there are plenty of cultural treasures, ancient temples and some of the best hiking trails. The country has an amazing landscape with a tropical jungle in the south and the Himalayas in the north, including Mount Everest – the highest mountain in the world.
The capital Kathmandu is in itself a minor miracle – an almost medieval town surrounded by fascinating mountains. The city fascinates people with its charm, temples, cobbled streets, bustling markets, amazing scenery and a pleasant climate. It is the political, as well as cultural capital of Nepal.
