Even though it’s a small country landlocked between India, Tibet and China, Nepal is a beautiful place to visit. With diverse cultures, ancient temples, adventurous locales, and friendly natives, Nepal offers experiences that last for a lifetime.
Nepal has a varied mix of people and tribes like Sherpas, Indian migrants and Tibetan refugees. The dominant religions are Hinduism and Buddhism which make Nepal one of the most religiously tolerant nations. Also, tourism is the most budding industry in Nepal, especially making Kathmandu and Pokhara two favorite tourist destinations.
Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal and home to some of the most ancient and finest temples in the world. Kathmandu houses the oldest Pagodas which have been a constant source of inspiration for Pagodas in other parts of Asia. The Durbar square and city of Patan have plenty of temples and palaces. The Swayambhunath and Bouddhanath stupas are widely famous among tourists.
Pokahara, on the other hand, is second-most visited place in Nepal. The beautiful lake Phewa Tal enveloped by mountains is truly a traveler’s heaven. Even the mighty Fish Tail mountain in the Himalayas is hard to be missed. Pokhara is also an adventure spot for tourists who love to take part in outdoor sports like cycling, trekking, paragliding, river rafting, and kayaking, to name a few.
The ideal time to visit Nepal is in early October – November. Make sure you have taken care of all the travelling formalities – checking for flight prices, applying for visa, booking the flight, etc. – to avoid last minute hassles. You can consider travelling via Buddha Air, one of the best airlines in Nepal.
Once you land in Nepal, you will not be disappointed. A mystical land with rich cultural history, Nepal is bound to leave you mesmerized for a long time to come.
