The beautiful striking mountain scenery makes the experience absolutely out of this world. It is definitely a paradise for hikers.
In addition, Nepal is known for having the largest concentration of elevation changes in the world as it changes from just 60 meters above sea level to a whopping 8,848 meters. This contributes to the enormous variation in climatic conditions, varying from arctic cold to tropical hot.
