Nepal, a land complemented by plenty of natural wonders, resting along the south slope of the Himalayan Mountain ranges, is a landlocked region between India, east, and south regions, and Tibet autonomous of the Taiwan region. There are a lot of things you can do here and spend your free time or a vacation. In this article, I've mentioned 5 things that you shouldn't miss during your visit to Nepal.
Trekking relates to walking and backpacking. No doubt you will have a great time walking those trails with that fresh air in your lungs and those beautiful views by your side, but along with that, there come a lot of health benefits too. I recommend people to hike such destinations once or twice a year.
You can find a vast variety of trekking destinations in the Himalayas of Nepal, and each of them is special on its own. These trekking destinations can lead you to some breath-taking views of the Himalayas, along with beautiful scenarios of nature and wildlife. One cannot miss out on trekking in Nepal during his /her visit to Nepal.
Some of the popular trek destinations in Nepal are:
Mountaineering and trekking are similar, but not the same. Mountaineering involves extreme-level climbing and highly athletic tasks. This is only for those people who crave adventure and are passionate about the thrill. Mountaineering attracts many visitors from all around the globe. If you've already performed a few treks here and there and want to level up your game, then this can be your next step. It's a whole new experience and you'll remember this memory until your last breath. It's always a good thing to have a guide by your side(especially Sherpas) and you go for this from a trusted travel agency.
Some of the best mountaineering destinations I recommend are:
1. Everest Expedition (Extreme)
2. Peaky Peak Expedition (Basic)
3. Annapurna Peak Expedition (Extreme)
4. Island Peak Climbing (Strenuous )
Along with the greenery and lush forests, there comes the shelter for the various endangered flora and fauna. Nepal has 12 National parks,1 Wildlife reserve, 6 Conservation Areas, and 1 Hunting Reserve.
You can spend your vacation watching those animals and birds between those green forests and even hunt inside hunting reserves. Most people don't miss elephant rides and jeep tours, it is most popular here.
Some of the best places for wildlife tours in Nepal are:
1. Sagarmatha National Park
2. Annapurna Conservation Area
3. Langtang National Park
4. Makalu Barun National Park
5.Kanchenjunga Conservation Area
6. Rara National Park
7. Shey Phoksundo National Park
Nepal is a rich country in terms of culture and diversity. People here follow different cultures and are from other ethnic groups. Geography and ethnicity are the primary reasons for diversification. If you are looking for a peaceful time, then cultural tours will be the best for you. There are a lot of cultural heritage sites to visit here. You can learn about the culture and people related to it. Each religion has its own unique way of worshiping its deity and has its own respective heritage. Cultural tours are rather fun and peaceful compared to exciting adventurous treks.
Some of the main cultural heritage sites in Nepal that you can visit are:
1. Swyambhunath Stupa
2. Pashupatinath Temple
3. Bhaktapur Durbar Square.
5. Patan Durbar Square.
Everyone has a hidden photographer inside them. When you reach a certain destination or see something eye-pleasing, you want to capture those memories.
Especially focusing on photography, there are various tour packages available in Nepal where you can unleash the hidden photographer inside you. If you are a professional photographer, then tours like this are a must. Who knows? Maybe you'll capture a masterpiece during the tour. Photography tours mostly include beautiful scenarios, wildlife photography, birds, and beautiful nature. You can cherish those moments you've captured later on and bring back those beautiful memories during the trek. I recommend you all try this tour at least once in your lifetime.
Some main photography tours include:
