Nepal is a backpacker’s paradise. The land is stunningly gorgeous, the people are generous and friendly, and the prices are dirt cheap. It’s no surprise that both “trekking” backpackers and “tours” backpackers alike have been flocking to the country for quite some time. But fear not, authentic experiences are still around despite the number of tourists that visit each year. One of the reasons for this is that the Nepalese take their tourism industry very seriously. we want everyone to have a great time and genuinely understand why people visit their amazing country.
