The Himalayas span approximately four countries and stretch for over 3,000 miles. Nepal remains the major tourist destination in the area with an abundance of adventure sport opportunities. The northern areas of Pakistan offer some of the most visually spectacular parts of the Himalayan landscape although the unpredictable terrain makes it a location for the more experienced. In the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, many go to the Ladakh region to visit the tranquil Tibetan monasteries and soak in the serene beauty of the landscape.
