    When you think of the country Nepal, the Himalayas come to mind. Not only does Nepal offer these mystic snow covered mountains but also it is a country filled with history, culture and many attractions for the traveler to explore. Situated between China and India, Nepal has a population of 26 million people. Every year this beautiful country attracts travelers for adventures, honeymoons, and casual get a ways not just to the surrounding countryside but also to their capital city of Kathmandu also known as the “City of Temples”.

    Nepal is one of the least developed countries in Asia with many people living below the poverty line. Eighty percent of the population works in agriculture, which makes up most of their economy. Some of their produce is tobacco, sugarcane, grain and jute. Recently production of carpets and textiles have expanded making up for 80% of their earnings.

    The best time to travel to Nepal is during the months of October to November when it is dry or during the spring season from March to May. During the months of October to November, the rain season has just finished with the landscape being green and lush. The air is fresh and clean, allowing perfect views of the Himalayas. In mid June to September is the least time to visit, as it usually will rain everyday, making the trails and roads muddy with mudslides. May to early June can make travel unpleasant with the intense heat with the average temperature running above 30 degrees Celsius.
