Nepal, tucked away in the serenity of the Himalaya Mountains and sharing borders with China and India, is also famed for its Annapurna trekking circuit and it is also one of the world’s most popular yoga destinations.

Important religious pilgrimage sites are scattered throughout the country, including Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha, a designated World Heritage Site.

Nepal is also becoming increasingly popular as an adventure tourism and outdoor activity destination, especially mountain biking, helicopter tours and paragliding in its mountainous regions.
