Nepal is not just diverse in terms of nature; it is a home to many different cultures, religions, customs and traditions. Sherpa Khangri Outdoors can arrange tours to different portions of country which are either of natural significance or attractive from cultural point of view or both.  A tour to Baridiya National Park or Chitwan National Park can be a good place to get lost in the wilderness and observe some exotic animals like Bengal Tiger and One Horned Rhino. But if you are willing to get a taste of Nepali rural life, Ghandruk Village, Darau Sirubari Villages and Ghale Gaun are excellent destinations. Pokhara is the tourism capital of the nation which is famous for being the city of seven lakes. Besides, it is the only gateway to adventures like paragliding and zip-flyers.          

So, if you want to taste the hospitality of Nepalese people, observe their tradition and culture and harmony that is the very binding fabric of nation or if you want to fulfill your soul that is hungry to get in touch with nature, we have several tour offers waiting for you.
