Located in South Asia, Nepal boasts most of the world’s highest mountains, a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, rich culture and adventure activities. Whether you are looking for a feast of the eyes, an adrenaline rush, or some quiet meditation and an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, Nepal has it all.

More than 120,000 people from China traveled to Nepal in 2014, but half that number went in the wake of a massive earthquake that jolted the landlocked country in 2015. To invite back more Chinese tourists, Nepal announced in 2016 a visa fee exemption program for China. Nepal also designated 2017 as the China-Nepal tourism year.

The following are some of the must-sees and must-dos in Nepal.

Fly towards the Himalayas

Nepalese are proud to tell every visitor that the country is home to eight out of 14 of the world’s highest peaks (above 8,000 meters), including the most famous, and the world’s highest, Mount Everest.

Nothing beats an early morning flight towards the Himalayas. Take a 30-seat turboprop plane towards Mount Everest, and you will enjoy an hour-long trip that first gives you a panoramic view of the city landscape and then come close to the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest. The moment when you find the winding peaks topping clouds in the sky, you are reminded the figure 8,848 meters, the height of the peak imprinted on you in those early school days, and now you would finally witness its awe-inspiring sight.
