Nepal is located in South Asia in the Himalayas. It is bordered to the north by Tibet, and to the south, east and west by India. Kathmandu is the capital, and Boudhanath, where I’ve stayed in recent years, is close by. I have visited and trekked in Nepal since 1988 when I hiked to Everest Base Camp through the snows of early March. If there is a heaven on earth, you will find it in this small, welcoming country.
