The first things that come to mind when you think of visiting Nepal are certainly the white mountains and the many hiking possibilities that the country offers.

film about Nepal by the Aventuriers VoyageursHere is the description:Yannick and Marie visited Nepal before the powerful earthquake that occurred on April 25, 2015. They made a complete tour of the country including visiting temples, an incursion into the jungle on the back of an elephant in Chitwan National Park, cycling in the Pokhara region, paragliding over the rice fields, celebrating Buddha’s birthday at his birthplace, visiting a Tibetan refugee camp and visiting Dashhinkali, a temple worthy of Indiana Jones .
