Trekking and mountain climbing is one of the biggest attractions in Nepal. Eight of the highest eight thousanders in the world, including the mighty Mt. Everest, are located in Nepal.
Thousands of people visit Nepal every year with the sole purpose of reaching the pinnacle of these mountains. Adventure junkies are mostly mesmerized by the feeling of standing on the top of the world, while everything else sits below them.
On the other hand, for those who do not want to reach the peak, there are also packages with the basecamps as the final destinations.
Nepal is packed full of cultures and traditions. With four main religions and 38 ethnic groups, every group has their own unique culture and tradition. People from different ethnic backgrounds have their own traditional food, clothes, languages, and much more.
The diversity among people and culture is what makes Nepal standout from the rest. Moreover, the seven heritage sites verified by UNESCO, make Nepal even more special. You can either go into a Zen mode at the ancient Buddhist Monasteries like Boudhanath and Swayambhunath or feel the power of devotion at the holy Pashupatinath Temple and other sites.
Because of the geographical diversity, Nepal has to offer, Nepal is also the home of 852 species of birds and 208 species of mammals. Wildlife tourism is also very popular in Nepal as you get to watch birds and animals like Spiny Babbler, Red Panda, Bengal, Tiger, Gharial, Sloth Bear.
