Nepal is place of colorful prayer flags set against white-capped mountains: a truly heavenly landscape. As the home to eight of the world’s top 10 highest peaks—including incomparable Mount Everest, the undisputed number one—Nepal’s pulse-quickening adventure and jaw-dropping beauty are reason enough to travel here. This incomparable setting offers some of the finest hiking in the world; in fact, many travelers come to Nepal solely to experience the thrill of trekking in this pristine nation. Yet the charms of Nepal tours with Geringer Global Travel go well beyond its postcard-perfect mountains.
Across the varied landscapes (misty jungles, terraced rice fields and natural forests complement the jagged peaks here), a harmonious and abiding culture pervades. Temples and shrines pepper the villages in this largely Hindu nation that is also home to Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha. The picturesque town of Pokhara is ideally placed for those trekking in the Annapurna Range, offering a glimpse of local culture and views of mighty Mount Machhapuchhare. Kathmandu’s labyrinthine alleys are filled with hidden temples and a captivating energy, while national parks such as Chitwan National Park feature species such as barking deer, wild boar, Asiatic jackal, leopards, tigers and the rare one-horned rhino. Birders will be astounded by 800 species that can be found here, especially in the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve in the Terai Region.

Join Geringer Global Travel on a Nepal vacation and experience the exhilarating heights and captivating culture of this Himalayan nation.
