Where is Nepal?
Nepal, a sovereign Independent Kingdom, lies between 80 degree 12' east longitude and 26 degree 22' and 30 degree 27' north latitude. It is bounded on the north by the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China; on the east by Sikkim and West Bengal of the Indian Union on the south by Indian States of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and on the west by Uttar Pradesh of Indian Union. The length of the Kingdom is 885 kilometers east-west and its breath varies from 145 to 241 kilometers north-south. Climatically, it lies in the temperate zone with the added advantage of altitude.
Why is Nepal such a fascinating country for many people?
The Himalayan kingdom of Nepal is a land of scenic mountains, time-worn temples and some of the best walking trails on Earth. It's a small country, but it's rich in scenic splendor and exotic cultures. The people of Nepal are as diverse as their country and represent distinct cultures and races.
Though they speak a variety of tongues and practice different religions, they are the friendliest people that you would ever meet. The kingdom has long exerted a pull on the Western imagination and it's a difficult place to dislodge from your memory once you return. So, wait until you're actually here in Nepal.
As a traveler, there is endless number of surprises Nepal has to offer you. Kathmandu Valley with its thousands of Hindu temples, Buddhist stupas, stunning architecture and rich pageantry can be quite beyond words. If you are careful enough not to get entangled in the superficial facade of a flatly "modernizing" capital city, Kathmandu probably offers you as exotic and urban experience as you can get.
Beyond Kathmandu, it’s another world altogether. Most travelers to Nepal want to check out the truly spectacular Himalayas along with the higher hills. A few go there to scale the high mountains, but many are nature lovers who trek along landscapes filled with deep valleys, lush forests, snow trails, terraced fields, and above all, the most hospitable people.
Travelers to Nepal also love making a safari trip to one of the National Parks in Nepal. The most popular one is the Chitwan National Park in the southern plains which hosts a diverse wildlife reserves including the rare Asian one-horn rhino.

Indeed the visa can be extended for a total of 120 days, an additional 30 days visa may be granted on reasonable grounds from the Immigration Office. Nevertheless, a tourist cannot stay in Nepal under tourist-visa for more than 150 cumulative days.

I traveled with skyline experience for their trek to EBC in April 2017. And i enjoyed every moment of it! Mr. Madhav was always available and very helpful to answer all my questions. He provides me with all the information i needed, so i felt very save before going on the trek.
Our group had a fantastic time on the EBC trek with Madhav and our fantastic guide- Sanjay. Mahdav runs a top notch agency and we felt comfortable knowing that he was in the background making sure we were safe. In total we arranged a 12 day trek with 7 people through Skyline, virtually everything was arranged by Madhav who also made himself available for communication throughout our trek. In fact, Madhav frequently called in to our guide to make sure we were doing okay! At the end of the trek we decided to do an impromptu trip to Chitwan which was also organized by Skyline and Madhav. Our stay in Nepal could not have gone smoother and this is largely due to the character of Madhav.
Our EBC trek itself was safe, exciting and rich thanks to the expertise of Sanjay (our guide). I would recommend Sanjay, Madhav and Skyline to anyone looking to do the EBC trek or other excursions in Nepal!
It was my first encounter with high altitude at 5,364 meters and first experience in the high Himalayas in Nepal. The connection with Skyline treks for the trip was my best and best decision. Though it was moderate-difficult trek but the care and motivation from my trek guide Sanjay C, I was failed to experience and difficulties throughout the trek.
The more I exalt about Skyline team that would be less so what they deserve is high recommendation. Can’t forget Skyline for quality and comfort service.
