Wildlife Holidays in Nepal
Sitting at the heart of the Himalayas, overlooked by some of the world's highest mountains, Nepal is one of the most spectacular countries on earth. What makes this mystical mountain kingdom so special is its warm and friendly people, and extraordinary blend of Buddhist and Hindu culture, and the sheer splendour of its scenery.
This is in addition to a remarkably diverse range of habitat, from snowcapped mountains to low lying forests, and as a consequence, an exceptional variety of birds and mammals. Over 850 bird species are found in Nepal, and among its larger mammals number Bengal tiger, leopard, Indian rhinoceros, Asian elephant, water buffalo, gaur, three species of bear, deer, and antelope.
