Welcome to the top of the world
Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the ice-cold mountains meet the steamy-hot Indian plains. Soaring snow- topped peaks shimmer with rainbows of prayer flags, while the intense streets of Kathmandu are a ceaseless frenzy of chattering vendors and garish signs: Nepal is, thoroughly, a colourful slice of Asia. It’s a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas and some of the best mountain biking on earth. Nepal’s craggy chunk of the Himalayas offers world-class terrain – peppered with rustic mountain villages, and hundreds of undulating trails that have been trodden upon for centuries.
