Guyana

Guyana might not be on everyone’s bucket list, but with its unspoiled rainforests, golden beaches, sweeping savannahs and meandering rivers, this little-known nation offers rich rewards for those daring enough to visit.

Tucked away in the Himalayan Mountains, this enchanting nation’s natural landscape is dominated by eight of the world’s tallest peaks, including the iconic Mount Everest. The sight of these soaring mountains is a magnet for mountaineers and trekkers, offering some of the greatest physical challenges and most scenic hikes on earth.

In addition to the numerous ambitious climbers who flock here to face the challenge of climbing this majestic peak, Nepal attracts large numbers of eco-tourists eager to experience this intriguing country’s virtually untouched natural wonders including verdant valleys, rushing rivers, blue lakes that originate in the Himalayas and lush subtropical forests home to a range of exotic wildlife.

Nepal’s cultural landscape is just as diverse as its natural one, playing host to an array of distinct ethnic groups. Other popular highlights include: the capital city of Kathmandu with its exquisite temples and palaces; the sheer magnificence of Patan’s Golden Temple; Chitwan National Park, for its impressive scenery; and, of course, Bodnath, the nation’s most sacred Buddhist monument.

The diverse terrain of Nepal offers excellent opportunities for adventurous activities. Although mountain climbing and trekking are the most popular, there is also superb white water rafting on steep mountain rivers as well as elephant safaris or tiger tracking in the Royal Chitwan and Royal Bardia National Parks situated in the jungles of the Tarai belt.

Guyana is a fascinating, friendly, lush tropical destination that draws adventure travellers and nature lovers in increasing numbers.
