Nepal is a country of incredible natural beauty with a rich cultural heritage. Located between the two Asian giants -- China and India -- it is perhaps best known for its breathtaking mountain ranges, including Mt. Everest (8,850m.), the highest point on earth. The city of Lumbini, located near the southern border with India, is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. And throughout virtually the entire country one may find and experience beautiful sacred temples and shrines of the Buddhist and Hindu religions. Nepal is home to approximately 25 million people as varied as the terrain in which they live, with over 35 different tribal and ethnic groups.

But most of all, Nepal is a mecca for trekkers and tourists of all ilks who thrive on the challenges of the high country terrain, or who prefer the more gentle slopes and rich cultural attractions at the lower elevations, where views and photo opportunities of the rugged peaks in the distance abound.

Tanka Ram Rai and his travel company, Snow Lion Adventure Trekking, can help you create an unforgettable trekking experience or other customized adventure. Tanka grew up in a remote village near Mt. Everest, and has spent many years leading treks throughout the Himalayas. He is equally adept at working with local hotels, airlines, and transportation operators in Nepal, setting up travel arrangements that match the needs and special interests of his clients.

Because Snow Lion Adventure Trekking is a small company, based in Kathmandu, they can operate with great flexibility and low overhead, enabling you to have the adventure of your dreams at a cost that is consistent with your means.
