Kathmandu Valley only

The Kathmandu Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a host of ancient architecture and traditional culture in its famous towns. On top of this cultural aspect, the country has some of the best trekking routes in the world ranging from gentle walks to the Everest base camp trek. There is also a choice of river routes to try out some white water rafting, suitable for the complete beginners or the more experienced rafters. Nepal has a profusion of wildlife in some excellent national parks from the popular Chitwan in the lowland Terai, to the lesser visited Royal Bardia in the west of the country. There really is a chance of seeing tigers here as well as the great one-horned Asian rhinos, and the bird watching in some of the more remote national parks is superb.
Nepal has a diverse range of ecosystems from lowland sub-tropical forests right through to the high altitude environments of the Himalayas. Some 160 species of mammals and 871 species of birds can be found. There are numerous national parks and wildlife reserves providing unique opportunities to view this exotic and rare wildlife.
