The Nepalese Panorama Tour

Perched between the two great powers of Asia, India and China, Nepal stands at the intersection of Hinduism and Buddhism. A wealthy universe of history and traditions, a mosaic made up of a multitude of ethnic groups, can be distinguished by its tropical jungle at its snowy summits passing through its ancient capitals. This trip along with the majestic panoramas of nature, will also serve the purpose of visiting some of the NGOs worth visiting.
