Nepal Travel guide

Nepal, home to eight out of ten highest mountain peaks in the world, is a land locked country in Southern Asia. Although it is a small country, a lot of its territory is dominated by the breath-taking peaks of the Himalayas Read more

  • The best time to visit is between the months October and December as the skies are generally clear and the temperature is also moderate. January and February are usually very cold, but you can benefit from quieter trekking trails as there are fewer visitors. Late spring is a very beautiful time to visit as the rhododendrons bloom. From May humidity builds until the monsoon season in June and the clouds hide the mountain views.
  • Nepal is home to a population of twenty-eight million, belonging to dozens of different ethnic groups. They can roughly be divided into Hindus, who make up 90% of the population and dominate political and religious life. Majority of the Buddhists who live in the mountain villages close to Tibet. But Buddhism has a special association to Nepal- Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Buddha, was born in Terai in 543 BC. The most well-known Buddhist group is the Sherpa, which has been associated with mountaineering expeditions in the Himalayas since the beginning. A large majority of the population makes a livelihood from agriculture.
  • Take a stroll through the medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur gazing through the peaks at sunset from a Himalayan viewpoint and join Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims on a spiritual excursion around ancient stupas and monasteries. The Kathmandu Valley offers a collection of iconic palaces, hidden backstreet shrines, and divine temple art. Nepal’s Hindu and Buddhist temples are a work of art, and the beautiful carvings will leave you in awe! The best-preserved medieval town, Bhaktapur has the tallest temple in Nepal.
  • Patan’s Golden Temple is located in the centre of a beautiful Buddha statue. Changu Narayan Temple, a 1500-year-old, ranks as the treasure house of Himalayan art. Other great temples also include GokarnaMahadev Temple set beside the river Bagmati, which you can combine with a hike to Kopan Monastery; the famous Pashupatinath Temple, popular amongst a lot of Hindu devotees. You cannot leave Nepal without making a trip to Lumbini, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, and a major place of pilgrimage.
  • What to See and Do in Nepal?

  • The Himalayas lie across the northern region of Nepal, and this is also where the eight of the ten peaks in the world are located. They are Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Annapurna. Here, some of the best hiking is accessible for all mountain lovers. No wonder it’s a mountaineering paradise! Nepal has an extensive history of mountaineering.
  • Mid-October to Mid-December is the prime time for mountaineering, as the skies are clear and sunny and the temperatures range from warm to crisp. Autumn is good considering the slightly lower peaks, but winter is cold with short days, and early spring is subject to frequent snow storms. Besides trekking, there’s also rafting, bungee jumping into the Himalayan abyss, canyoning, kayaking, paragliding, climbing and mountain biking all offering a rush against the backdrop of some of the Earth’s most impressive views.
  • The diversity of trekking can only be found in Nepal, with its network of trails, also commonly called as the Great Himalaya Trails which covers Nepal from Humla and Darchula in the Western region to Kanchenjunga in the Eastern region. However, in Kathmandu trekkers need permits and other documentation from either a trekking agent or from an appropriate office.
  • These documents will be checked along the route. There are also half day treks for those with little time in Nepal and for those who cannot commit to challenging treks.
  • Mountain biking is also a growing activity attracting many people from around the world. Hardcore bikers can ride all through the Himalayan peaks till the northern border. Popular destinations are Sankhu, Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, Budanilkantha, and Pokhara, with their outstanding beauty and landscapes.
  • Take your natural experience to a whole other level by going bird watching at the KoshiTappu Wildlife Reserve in eastern Terai, a paradise for bird watchers. Here you can see about 850 species of birds that are found in Nepal. A large number of them can be spotted in the Kathmandu valley alone! Nagarjun, Godavari and Phulchowki are popular bird watching areas and the Taudaha Lake is extremely great for watching migrating waterfowl during winter. Chitwan and Bardiya harbour are also national parks hosting a variety of species of birds. Nepal’s National bird is the lophophorous or Impeyen Pheasant, locally called Danphe.
  • Popular tourist areas like Thamel, New Road, Basantapur, Asan, Patan, and Bhaktapur sell souvenir pieces like Nepali tea, the famous Gurkha knife, stone carvings, pashmina, carpets, jewellery, and artworks of silver and gold trinkets, stone and metal and delicate wood carvings. Popular shopping malls in Kathmandu are Bhatbhateni chain of stores, Salesways chain of stores, City Center in Kamal Pokhari and Kathmandu Mall in Sundhara. In Pokhara, the major shopping areas are Lakeside and Mahendrapul Bazaar.
  • The staple meal of Nepalese is daalbhaattarkari-lentil soup, rice, and curried vegetables. It is usually had with pickle, yoghurt, chapati, and papad. Most Nepalese are Hindu vegetarians. Buffalo and goat meat is popular amongst the Newars of the Kathmandu Valley-they are great meat eaters. Spices are heavily featured in Newari food. In Nepal, you can also try some authentic Tibetan dishes like thukpa noodle stews and their variations with Momos. Most Nepalese also round off their meal with betel leaf or paan! Like us, they also enjoy a huge range of sweets, mostly based on milk, jaggery, and nuts. If you do visit Bhaktapur, be sure to try the delicious juju dhau (king of curds), a creamy thick yoghurt.
  • Tempos are bigger auto rickshaws that run on fixed routes in big cities in Nepal. Kathmandu’s diesel tempos have been replaced by electric and gas-powered clean tempos. Drivers usually pick up and drop off at any point along the route. Metered taxis are generally found in larger cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara and can be hired for local and long-distance journeys. These taxis are found at tourist destinations with black licence plates. Most taxi drivers refuse to go by the meter, so try to bargain and bring it down to a reasonable price.
  • Tootle is a new motorbike ride availing app that offers an alternate transport method and is much cheaper. However, it is only available until 8 pm.
  • Cycle-rickshaws are still common in the old parts of Kathmandu and in some towns of Terai and the prices are usually negotiable. Politically, the country has never been more stable like it is now than a couple of years back. Crime is also not a major risk for tourists; however, earthquakes have gravely affected travel in many areas in recent years. There is an increased risk of landslides and avalanches following the recent tragedy. There are also a number of road accidents, especially at night, so try to avoid travel at night. Do not trek alone; always go with a group. It is always better to trek with a guide. It is not advised for women to trek alone. Also, learn about altitude sickness and its symptoms and follow the guidelines for a safe and pleasant trekking experience. Take a couple of copies of your documents and keep them separate from the originals.
