Nepal-Introduction

Draped along the spine of the Himalaya, Nepal is a land of sublime scenery, time-worn temples, and some of the best hiking trails on earth. It's a poor country, but it is rich in scenic splendour and cultural treasures. The kingdom has long exerted a pull on the Western imagination.It's the kind of country that lingers in your dreams long after you leave it. This is why so many travellers are drawn back to Nepal, armed the second time round with a greater appreciation of its natural and cultural complexity, a stout pair of walking boots and a desire for sculpted calf muscles.

Travel in Nepal is generally quite easy. You can usually get around on foot, by car or by bus. Motorbike is also quite popular. Unfortunately, travel is sometimes slowed down by frequent border checks, but these soon pass by and leave you free to be on your way again. There are hotels in every region, as well as great car rental companies which give you the means to drive yourself around the country. There are also a few domestic flights which may come in handy if you are planning to go to a specific region in Nepal, otherwise most people opt to hire a vehicle

with a Trek to the Everest Base Camp

The best adventure tourism includes plenty of contact with local communities wherever we may choose to go. Natural flora and fauna are obvious attractions, but humans are social animals, so a vacation becomes all the more memorable when we make friends with people who have lived for generations in the sites we explore. The exquisite romance of encountering ancient cultures and exotic lifestyles is unbeatable when it comes to selecting an adventure tourism option for each year.

Much of the initial attraction of Nepal comes from the fact that so many of us do not as much about this mountainous Kingdom as we do about even more inaccessible places. Kathmandu is on the air map, and is actually relatively easy to reach from any part of the world. This capital city is conveniently small by metropolitan standards, and every adventure tourism venture can begin within just an hour of landing in the midst of the splendid foothills of the Himalayas. This does not mean that there are few things to see and to do in and around Kathmandu, but most people are so eager to get amidst the verdant countryside that the usual sightseeing and shopping is best left for the end of your stay.

Nepal is so blessed with gurgling rivers, luxuriant forests and pristine wildlife that it can easily accommodate entire lifetimes of adventure tourism! However, a trek to the Base Camp pf Mount Everest comes with a host of such tempting attractions, that it is a clear winner by miles for anyone with just one Nepal visit in mind. The spectacular views of the legendary mountain, the sense of achievement of living in the hallowed grounds which have hosted so many path breaking expeditions and the heavenly scenery, are all ingredients of a top adventure tourism foray. However, it is the friendly though hardy mountain folk who live all along the trek path, who make the most indelible impressions on every trekker.

Adventure tourism is never for couch potatoes, but even those who pride themselves on peak fitness levels should prepare for the rigors of high altitude trekking, which a visit to the Everest Base Camp involves. It is best to pick a reliable tour operator, because their check lists and experience make for a trouble free and most enjoyable vacation.
