Nepal is a beautiful country and a cheap place to visit. With so many deals from some of the oldest temples in the world, hiking in the Himalayas, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, biking or just walking around the lakes. Now is the best time to visit before tourism conquers the country.
Unplanned between Tibet, China and India, Nepal is a country with its own culture and offerings. People are a diverse combination of native hill tribes, such as the Sherpas, Tibet refugees and migrants from India. Once upon a time, Buddhism was the dominant religion and left some of the best temples in the world. Hinduism is already the main religion that has led to the incredible reuse of temples and religious sites, as well as in one of the most religiously tolerant countries in the world.
Despite recent political issues, Nepal is a friendly tourist destination. English is spoken everywhere where tourism is present. The people are friendly and helpful. Cost is cheap and tourist services are good. There are few real roads in Nepal, but good bus service covers the inequalities of the countries. There are also flights between large settlements.
Since 1996, the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) has waged a people's war against the Nepalese state in the hills of Nepal. They want Nepal to be a consolidated Communist Republic, not the existing constitutional Hindu monarchy. Although their ideals are likely to lead to a better Nepal, their methods of torture, extortion and extortion have caused turmoil in the country and destroyed its tourism. However, the Maoist people were never targeted at tourists and few visitors had any problem.
Over the last few years, tourism has started to pick up speed, especially around areas such as Kathmandu and Pohara. The downturn has led to greatly reduced prices throughout the country.
Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is a hurried place but home to some of the oldest and finest temples in the world. Durbar Square in Kathmandu and the nearby town of Patan are full of palaces and temples. Kathmandu has the oldest Pagodas in the world, and all of Asia is made with these original designs. The stupas (temples) of Swayambhunath and Bodnath are probably the most famous images of Nepal. Beautiful, grand whitewashed buildings, tower-covered with all seeing Buddha eyes.
Pokhara is the second city of Nepal, at least in terms of tourism. The great lake of Phewa Tal, surrounded by beautiful green mountains, is an idyllic place to spend a few days or the rest of your visa! As if this is not enough, the mighty Mountains of Fish Tail is located in the range of the Himalayas, which is impossible to lose in this region. Pokhara offers so much, with some of the best hiking trails in Nepal, cycling, paragliding, some of the best rafting and kayaking worlds on different rivers, different temples, incredible views and beautiful lake to spend your time spilling around . It may be a ridiculous 8-hour bus ride from Kathmandu, but it's definitely worth it.
Chitwan National Park, south of Kathmandu, is an incredible national park. Now well managed, providing major problems with animal breeding, but also managing forests and the surrounding area properly. In particular, tigers, elephants and freshwater dolphins make Chitwan a great experience for visitors.
Nepal is home not only to Mount Everest, but also to 8 of the world's 10 highest peaks. Nepal is considered the best hiking destination, with endless routes throughout the country ranging from 1 hour to 28 days. Everest Track Base Camp offers some of the best views of the highest peaks in the world. But if a two-week hike is not your thing, then take the bus to Nagarkot village. From here you can see Mount Everest, though it is not much more than a point in the distance, as are some of the other highest peaks in the world.
