This article looks at four top activities that will give you a great over all feel for a country and that will pack your trip full of excitement and adventure.

First up is a look at the history and architecture of this fantastic region. The architectural styling of Nepalese buildings has long been considered an art form in its own right, and it's easy to see why with their sweeping, layered, timber roofs and carved timber posts. One such example of this fantastic Nepalese styling can be seen in the "Krishna mandir" of Patan, a beautiful building built of stone and featuring many incredible carvings.

Next up is a look at the fantastic wildlife of the region by going out on a jungle safari! Nepal is well known for having several rare species of animal. Have a trip out to see the fantastic one horned rhinoceros or the Bengal tiger, protected in the Royal Chitwan national park or have a trip out on one of the fascinating bird safaris to see the great migrations the occur every year.

If you're looking for something a little more active then the next activity might take your fancy. Trekking, arguably the activity that Nepal is most famous for. The country is famous world wide for its breath taking mountain scenery and the large number of brilliant trekking routes, including routes around some of the world's tallest mountains. If you're feeling a little braver you can even head out on one of the Everest base camp treks and experience something not many people get to.

And finally, in line with the trekking up mountains, we have climbing. If trekking sounds good but you want to take it that little bit further then climbing might well be for you. This fairly intensive activity can allow you to reach spots that afford some of the most breath-taking views in the world, with climbing being the ultimate adventure for many people. The peaks in Nepal offer a wide range of climbing, although not many climbs are suitable for novices.
