Nepal is located in Southern Asia, and is home to eight of the world’s 10 highest peaks, including Mount Everest. Throughout most of its history, Nepal was a monarchy, but in 2008 Nepal became a democratic republic. Travel in Nepal often includes trekking through the Himalayas, or rafting trips on rivers leaving from Kathmandu and Pokhara. A top destination, Chitwan National Park offers jungle safaris, elephant rides and adventurous tiger and rhino viewing.
