Nepal's Neighbors

In addition to its own heritage, Nepal (the orange sausage-shaped country between India and China) draws cultures from the diverse religions and history of its neighbors. Though several of these nearby countries serviced Nepal from Hong Kong, our schedule worked best with Nepal's local airline. We flew West from Hong Kong into the Kathmandu airport on Royal Nepali Airlines without incident despite Lonely Planet's warning that this carrier was "notoriously unreliable."
