Map of Nepal
Think of Nepal and you think of mountains – this little country, sandwiched between India and Tibet, boasts the world’s highest and most breath-taking stretch of the Himalayas. But it is also incredibly diverse, with crumbling Hindu temples and lofty Buddhist monasteries, ancient festivals and laidback lakeside bars. Use our map of Nepal to start planning your trip.
You won’t be short of places to explore at this astonishingly varied destination. Marvel at the exquisite Janaki Mandir, a Mughal-style Hindu temple in Janakpur, join thousands of sadhus at the thrilling festival of Shiva Raatri, or wander the ancient town of Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley. Adventurers can soak up the sublime mountain views at Pokhara’s shining lake or test their nerves rafting the waters of the Bhota Koshi. Not forgetting that Nepal boasts some of the finest treks on earth, from gentler climbs in Annapurna all the way up to Everest.Find out more about Nepalchevron_right
