About Nepal

Nepal is a landlocked country bordered by Tibet and China to the north and India to the east, west, and south. Although it is a small country, Nepal contains the greatest variation in altitude on Earth, from the lowland plains and jungles of the Tarai in the south, to the Himalayas and Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain, in the north.

The origin of the word Himalaya comes from Sanskrit and means “Abode of Snow.” As one of the most bio-diverse regions, Nepal is a treasure trove of animals, birds, medicinal plants, flowers, and fungi. Similarly, Nepal’s many cultures represent over 120 distinct ethnic and linguistic groups, each contributing to a rich and fascinating kaleidoscope of spiritual practices, history, and art. Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu is steeped in history, architecture, and religious significance.

"A 21-day trek through the Himalayas of Nepal, including the World Heritage Site Sagarmatha National Park. Wow! I cannot believe I finally made it there ... and I'm more amazed that I survived! The IMT trek was so special and different in many ways, from other “package” excursions, primarily because of the small group size, we were able to make side trips to see and do things not actually on the itinerary, we were able to proceed at our pace—not that of the guides’ or rigid itinerary—and then got to have experiences with local people, customs, and festivals. We were invited in to homes and monasteries on several occasions. Talk about off-the-beaten-path travel! The Sherpa guides and porters that work with IMT are hand-selected and have developed very close bonds with the organizer, Richard Silber. And I have to say that the Sherpas were a very big part of what made this such a wonderful experience."
