Though the geographical area of Nepal is small, it occupies a large space in the hearts of the innumerable tourists who visit it every year. With an abundance of snow-capped mountains, lush green forests, wildlife reserves, lakes, palaces, temples and Buddhist monasteries, Nepal truly is an explorer’s paradise. When you add the love and hospitality that the Nepalese people show to the visitors, you have a concoction of travel experiences that no one can ever resist.
Be prepared to be mesmerised by the natural beauty of Kathmandu, as soon as you step out of the airport. After a visit to the Pashupatinath Temple and the Boudhanath Stupa, you can visit Hanuman Dhoka, the erstwhile Royal Palace which was built in the mid-16th century. You can also go on a mountain biking tour around Kathmandu if you want to pump up your adrenaline.
While in Pokhara, spend some time doing boating or paragliding over the Phewa Lake to soak yourself in its beauty. The Begnas Lake is another popular destination for swimming, fishing and boating. The underground Davis Falls and the Mahendra Caves, a conglomerate of natural caves made of limestone will surely leave you awestruck.
Another must visit destination is Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha. If you are looking for serenity, peace and tranquillity, you must visit the 2200-year-old Mayadevi Temple and the international Buddhist monasteries like the World Peace Pagoda, Zhong Hua Chinese Buddhist Monastery, Royal Thai Buddhist Monastery, and Cambodian Monastery in the city. The Panditarama Vipassana Center is going to be your perfect destination if you want to cleanse your soul by doing yoga and meditation.
If you love wildlife, then you can catch the sight of the rare one-horned rhinos and Bengal tigers in the picturesque Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site in southern Nepal.
The country is popular as a mountaineer’s paradise. With eight of the 14 peaks of the world which rise above 8000 feet located there, thousands of mountaineering enthusiasts from around the world visit Nepal every year to conquer the Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. You can experience the excitement by going for the Everest Base Camp Trek or the Annapurna Circuit Trek. If you are not a trekking enthusiast, you can catch the breathtaking aerial view of the snow-capped Himalayas on a chartered helicopter.
