You never know what to expect when you try the bus system in Nepal.
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.
