Imagine emerald green land resting in the lap of the Himalayas, watching the sunrise from behind the world's highest peaks. Earlier travelers called it the mythical paradise of Shangri La, but to us earthly mortals it's Nepal. Land locked between India and Tibet, its dramatic location attracts travelers seeking adventure, spirituality and some of the best trekking in the world.
Globe Trekker Ian Wright starts his journey in the bustling and expanding modern day capital Kathmandu, sampling Nepalese food, nightlife and visiting the most sacred Hindu temple in Nepal, Pashupatinath Temple, home of the young princess goddess. His journey takes him on a hunt for the elusive Bengal tiger in Royal Bardia National Park. Ian spends the evening in a small village nearby and witnesses a local celebration. From the Terai region Ian flies to the Lukla, in the eastern Himalayas. He makes his way along a section of the Everest highway to the popular bazaar at Namche and visits Tengpoche Monastery where he witnesses the traditional Mani Rimdu Festival. Joining a sherpa, Ian gets some insight into the nature of trekking in the heights of the Himalayas. On the last leg of his journey Ian flies to Humla, a town well off the trekkers track.
