Introduction to Nepal Tours, Travel and Group Holidays with Wendy Wu Tours
Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of biodiversity due to its geographical position and altitude variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60m above sea level to the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8,850m, resulting in sub-tropical to arctic conditions. This wide variation fosters an incredible variety of ecosystems. Here you will witness the greatest mountain range on earth, which has eight of the world’s 14 highest mountains, including Everest (8,850m), Kanchenjunga (8,598m), Lhotse (8,511m) and Annapurna (8,091m), to name a few.
See thick tropical jungles teeming with a wealth of wildlife, thundering rivers and forested hills. Within this spectacular geography is a rich cultural landscape. The majority of the population is found in the Kathmandu Valley, located in the centre of Nepal and home to three major towns, Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.

Lying in the heart of the Kathmandu Valley, the capital of Nepal has remained a centre of trade, religion and politics since ancient times. Kathmandu is a treasure trove of mediaeval art, temples and religion.
CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK
The Chitwan region was declared a national park by the Royal family in 1973. This is one of the few remaining undisturbed vestiges of the Terai, a low altitude region located between the foothills of the Himalayas and the Indian border. This park holds one of the world’s last populations of the One-Horned Rhino and is also one of the last refuges of the Royal Bengal Tiger.
