Check out this magnificent drone video of Nepal, compliments of Fit Lam Studios.  The video incorporates both drone and ground camera footage to create a stunning visual overview of this ancient land.  The video features extensive shots of the mountainous rural areas of the country as well as some of its larger cities - with a population of almost 30 million, Nepal has substantial urban areas.  Some of these are very old cities, and are full of cultural treasures such as ancient buddhist temples and monasteries.

Take in these stunning drone views of Nepal, compliments of brand-new AirVuz contributor and pilot A B Nash.  Nepal is sometimes mistakenly thought to be completely covered in mountains.  In fact, the Himalayan Mountains only cover roughly the northern third of the country.  As you will see in the video, the country features incredibly diverse landscapes, including areas of plains and forests.  The video also features some brilliant timelapse sequences, as well as shots of some of the country's 30 million+ people.  

Nepal's Cities and Villages


Nepal by Drone


While most people associate Nepal with remote expeditions to the Himalayan Mountains, the fact is that Nepal is much more than mountain wilderness.  The South Asian country is home to nearly 30 million people, many of whom live in teeming cities located far from the towering mountain peaks.  In this drone video, compliments of content creator and pilot PeterB-NL, you'll get a bird's eye view of a very different Nepal - a land of cities and villages, one which is far from the base camps of Mt. Everest.

With no roads to speak of in the higher elevation areas, truly experiencing the Himalaya Mountains generally involves a multi-day trek.  In this fantastic video, top contributor jeon.donghee used drone and ground camera footage along on one of the most challenging of these treks: the Three Passes Trek in Nepal.  The 16 day hike covers 160 km (around 100 mi.) and crosses the Renjo La, Cho La and Kongma La mountain passes; as you'll see in the video, the trek affords clear views of Mt. Everest.

The Remote Mustang District




Mustang is one of the districts of the Himalayan nation of Nepal.  It's one of the northern districts which run roughly parallel with the Himalaya's, lying a bit to the west and north of Kathmandu.  Occupying some of the most remote territory in the country, it's home to Dhaulagiri - the world's seventh-highest peak, with an elevation of almost 8.2k meters or about 26.8k ft.  In this drone video by vibrantholiday15, you'll get a mini aerial tour of this spectacular but forbidding land.

Check out this drone video from a village in eastern Nepal, compliments of Biju Sudarshan.  The village is called Bhedetar, which translates roughly to "Sheep's Butte".  It's located in the Dhankuta District of Koshi Zone, the eastermost province in this South Asian country.  It's located just a short distance from Dharan, which is the principal city of eastern Nepal.  The village is essentially a hill station.  It sits near the base of the Himlalayan Mountains, which run roughly parallel with the country's northern border.  

The Langtang Trek


Langtang Valley Trek


The Langtang Valley lies on the southern side of the Himalayan Mountains in north-central Nepal.  Mostly located within the Langtang National Park, the valley is used for a short but demanding trek into the Langtang masif, which has peaks of up to 7.2k meters above sea level (around 23.2k ft.).  The trek begins at Syabrubesi and ascends roughly 2.4k meters (around 8k ft.) to Kyanjin Gompa.  For a first upload to AirVuz, ruggedtrailsnepal created this video of the trek, which combines drone and ground camera footage.

Across Nepal by Drone


Beauty of Nepal


While Nepal is indelibly associated with the Himalayan mountain range which run over much of the country, it would be a mistake to think of this large south Asian country as one big Mt. Everest Base Camp.  Parts of the country are on the great plain which dominates north-central India, and the country has many Buddhist cultural sites as well.  In this excellent aerial tour by by content creator and drone pilot Sanjumike, you'll see the beauty from across the breadth of this mysterious country.
