Locked between the snow peaks of the Himalayas and the seething Ganges plain, Nepal has long been home to wandering ascetics and tantric yogis. Consequently, the country has a wealth of sacred sites and natural wonders:

  • Annapurna - popular trekking region of Nepal with the world-famous Annapurna Circuit
  • Chitwan National Park - see tigers, rhinos and animals in the jungle
  • Daman - tiny village in the mountains offering panoramic views of the Himalayas; especially stunning at sunrise and sunset. Note that there isanother Daman in India, a small town and district in the union territory of Daman and Diu
  • Haleshi (Tibetan: Maratika) - the site of a mountain cave where Padmasambhava attained a state beyond life and death
  • Lumbini - the sacred site of the Buddha Shakyamuni's birth
  • Mount Everest - the tallest peak of the world in the Khumbu region
  • Nagarkot - a hill station one hour from Kathmandu offering excellent views of the Himalayan Range
  • Parping - the site of several sacred caves associated with Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism
