Dear tourist, Festive greetings from the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal! Let me introduce myself to you. You can call me Macho.

That is easier than trying to remember our names as we have over a hundred different indigenous peoples and languages.

The name of my company shares the Parisian landmark: Eiffel Tower.

Our country is the best adventure, nature and culture destination in the world. In support, international media and travel organisations decorate us regularly with the number one destination awards.

Please visit us to find out why we are among the top ten holiday destinations in the world.

Nothing can beat the first-hand experience. We have the jungle safari, rafting, bungee, hiking, trekking, culture tours, mountain climbing, skiing, helicopter flying tours, paragliding and boating in the Himalayan lakes.

Hence, you must spend at least two weeks to enjoy what we have to offer. Of course, you have to travel repeatedly, ideally with your family, friends, colleagues, to enjoy a good deal.

We say ‘Once is not enough’.

We are pleased to invite you to visit us now. Winter is the best time to travel here, especially for enchanting, glistening mountain views drenched in the sun and moonlight, and elusive wildlife basking in the warm sun in our world-famous national parks.

As you are probably aware, we are home to the highest peak in the world: Mt Everest. A new survey has put up the altitude of Everest by .86cm or three ft. The easiest way to savour the sight and height of the landmark is by a one-hour plane ride.

There are 1001 reasons to visit us, and on the top of the list after Everest is Lumbini where the Apostle of Peace, Siddhartha Gautam, known as Lord Buddha, was born. He was born over six centuries before Christ.

We have numerous other attractions such as diverse people, cultures, temples, wildlife, scenic beauty and colourful history peppered with violence.

A maze of cultures, the deepest gorge in the world, flora, fauna and last but not the least, Living goddesses, the most famous of whom is from Kathmandu, await you.

In the 1970s, the western hippies, enamoured by the picturesque natural beauty, green farmlands, colourful cultures, friendly and non-intrusive people, and free-flowing drugs, huddled here. We will share yarns about the nostalgic chapter of our tourism history over a few designer drinks.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries. Wishing you a Happy New Year, we remain, Macho Naturally Nepal, Eiffel Tower Travel and Tour Pvt Ltd
