This trip was a fantastic experience in Nepal, if you don't want to go trekking (although you probably will by the end!). Get ready for incredibly friendly people, amazing food, and stunning landscapes

This trip is full of fun and variety. There are magical places to visit and wonderful people to meet along the way. Of course, some of the sights may be confronting. Nepal is still suffering the consequences of the 2015 earthquake and has much reconstruction still to complete. I feel this is all the more reason why more people should visit. Nepal relies heavily on the tourist industry and it has so much to offer, from ancient temples and awe- inspiring landscapes to fascinating traditions and delicious food.
