ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Nepal, as some travelers describe it, is the "last paradise" on earth. Nepal is a country of scenic beauty, festivals, temples and palaces (some dating back to the 10th century), arts and culture.

The Himalaya Mountains offer trekking trails, with more opening each year. And of course, for the mountaineering traveler, the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, lies in Nepal.

Nepal's other popular outdoor activities include bird watching, jungle safaris, riverside beaches, to mention just a few.

Note: Western travelers are advised by their governments to exercise a high degree of caution due to the volatile political and security situation. Strikes and violent clashes between demonstrators and security forces occur frequently.

    Spring season is from the beginning of March to the end of May with only occasional rain. The fall season is early September to early December and offers sunny days and warm nights.

    It is best to avoid travel from June to September as this is the monsoon season and rain falls nearly every day.
