The best way to explore Nepal's countryside is getting as close to it as possible, while mountain flights, and balloon rides are excellent to get a bird's eye view, hiking through the countryside and the back trails are equally breathtaking for the travellers' eyes.

    Just packup your rucksack and get the walking shoes on, there are plenty of places to explore, depending on your likes, hiking trails ranging from a few hours to a few days are abundant in Nepal.
