A magical name for travellers over the centuries, Nepal retains its mystique till today. The tiny country is bordered by the magnificent Himalaya range along the north, crowned by none other than Mount Everest, and the jungles of the Terai to the south. The co-existence of rich Buddhist and Hindu civilisations within its borders, highlighted by ubiquitous stupas and temples, make it a compelling destination. The villages and rice fields terraced into steep mountainsides are the natural and cultural images that visitors find so alluring, together with the unique attractions enclosed within the Kathmandu valley.
