Nepal can be a life-changing destination for visitors. With some of the world's highest peaks, including the highest of them all, Mount Everest, on its border, it is a magnet for climbers and hikers alike. A number of small airlines offer some of the most scenic, and scary, short flights in the world. The Annapurna trek is world-famous, and has an uncertain future due to road-building in the area.

The Buddhist and Hindu temples offer a perfect opportunity to relax and sightsee between trips to the mountains. And most visitors are captivated by the gentleness of the Nepali people, whatever their religion.
