Nepal, sitting between the Tibet autonomous region of India and China, is a land that owns vivid beauty and eternal scenery. Enveloped by 8 of the world’s 10 highest peaks, this country is home of colorful traditions, interesting history and friendly people. Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, is the most treasured gem of Nepal. With lush forests, tropical climate and unspoilt nature, the land’s diverse geography makes it one of the most beautiful and scenic countries all over the world.
Here, rich heritage, colorful tradition, amazing architecture and spiritual character happen all in one place. Nepal is home to some of the world’s awe-inspiring attractions. Situated in the Khumbu region in the east is the foot of Mt. Everest and almost all tourists dream of trekking and hiking in the region. Most of Nepal’s assets are included in the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage Site, such as the Bhaktapur Durbar square, Golden Gate and Pashupatinath Temple. Annapurna Range is named The Range of the Gods for all the right reasons: it is a heavenly site of nature and blissful trekking spot rolled into one. Jungle safari experience is also available courtesy of Chitwan National Park which offers nature walks, bird watching, elephant rides and jungle canoe.
Ethno-tourism is becoming a popular tourist activity in Nepal. The tour focuses on the country’s culture, traits, tradition, history and people which aims to let visitors understand that there is more to Nepal than its irresistible natural scenery. Nepal is also beaming with religious importance–the world heritage site Lumbini is where Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, was born. The country also hosts some of the region’s exemplary ancient architecture including Hanuman Dhoka that served as the Malla kings’ palace, Syambunath also known as The Monkey Temple, and Bodhnath Stupa that looks like a huge diagram of Buddhist cosmos when viewed above.
To taste Nepal’s wide range of favorites is a must when touring the country. Most of the local restaurants serve authentic daal bhaat tarkaari, Nepal’s national meal. Tea that is made of milk and sugar is also a favorite of tourists. Because Nepal has a diverse culture and wide ethnicity, its dishes have become varied and aplenty as well. Note that the concentration of Western-styled restaurants is found in Nepal’s major commercial areas and tourist districts.
Nepal accommodations match the varying interests of tourists visiting the country. High-rated hotels with luxurious treats and 5-star amenities are found in big cities such as Kathmandu. Meanwhile, modest inns, lodges and apartments that offer affordable rates and decent service are scattered all over the country. May the visit to Nepal means trekking on its mountain ranges, photographing its impeccable scenery, embracing its rich culture, or simply relishing a new kind of adventure, there is a place for everyone who wants to take pleasure on Nepal holiday.
