Groupon’s Guide to Nepal
Home to eight of the world’s highest peaks including the imposing Mount Everest, Nepal is where travellers go to get on top of the world. This is the place Buddhists meditate in high-altitude monasteries, Sherpas guide trekkers through narrow mountain passes and quaint villages operate based on ancient traditions passed down for generations.
The Himalayan country holds an enchanting pull over global explorers for its mystical magnetism, see-it-to-believe-it scenery and speedily urbanising cities, where crimson robes and bright flags stand in stark contrast to the abounding whiteness atop distant summits.
