In recent years with the advent of tourism programs and the linkage by air with the outside world, travels to this land of adventures became a possibility. In its immensely diverse and undulating topography, varied climate and mix of people combine to produce a magical attraction for outsiders. Many of these foreign visitors come to trek one or more of the many beautiful trekking regions now open by Nepal Government.
