With its truly awe-inspiring snow-capped giants and delightfully charming people, beautiful Nepal is home to monasteries, yaks and eight of the world’s highest mountain peaks, including the world-renowned Mount Everest. Adventure tourism in Nepal dates back to the early attempts to scale the world’s highest peaks. It has come a long way since. While trekking, mountaineering and game viewing have long been popular, an entire range of adventure possibilities have erupted. Now, travellers to Nepal can enjoy excursions such as rafting, biking, fishing, rock climbing, paragliding, boating, canyoneering and bungee jumping.
