Top 6 best things to do in Nepal

by | Entertainment

Go and see what it’s like viewing the rest of the world from the highest peak. If you are an adventure seeker and a historian, no doubt Nepal is the next country you would want to explore.

Located between the majestic Himalaya Mountains and the fascinating Indian jungles, Nepal is a land where things like yaks, yetis, mountain peaks and hidden monasteries appear to be seemingly common. And over the years, Nepal has managed to invent itself into a popular travel destination attracting the young and old to its rich natural beauty, historic attractions and vast cultural heritage that has proven to be the perfect mix between the ancient and the modern, slow paced lifestyles and frantic city life. It is also a popular destination to those who want to venture the famous Everest Base Camp.

TFT lists down our list of the top 6 best things to do in Nepal.

1. Trekking in Nepal
Whether you’re a novice or an experienced trekker, Nepal is the land of trekking (and climbing), offering some of the best trekking routes in the world. If you consider yourself a pro, the 4-day Poonhill trek is one of the better short treks in Nepal, while the Everest Base Camp trek is a great trek if having 12 days available. But if you would just like to experience trekking, Island Peak or Mera Peak is the one for you. Both peaks reach +6,000 meters and are safe for people with no prior mountaineering experience.

2. Panoramic flight over the Himalayas
Who says you need to trek to see the beautiful Himalayas? A Himalayan panoramic mountain flight tour which starts at around Dh 1,300 at getyourguide.com is the perfect way of enjoying unparalleled eye-level views of those majestic mountain peaks. Get spectacular views of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Gosaithan, Mt. Dorje Lhakpa, Mt. Gauri-Shanker and Mt. Pumori.

3. Visit to Chitwan National Park
Aside from the mountain peaks and monasteries, another must-see destination is the Chitwan National Par. It is the the first national park in Nepal and hosts more than 500 species of migratory birds, one horned rhinos, Bengal tigers and Asian elephants.

4. Exploring Pokhara If you opt for a stroll beside a lake, a short trip to Pokhara is ideal. This lakeside town attracts explorers, nature lovers and adrenaline junkies with its spectacular natural beauty, an array of fishing opportunities, mountain biking, exciting treks, visiting the peace pagoda, paragliding and sunbathing. Best way to enjoy this place is by boating and strolling down the lakeside in Pokhara.

5. Kathmandu sightseeing tour
Your trip to Nepal will never be complete with exploring the capital. Prepare to be in awe in almost each and every turn in the valley as it introduces you to intricate carvings, delightful pagodas and humongous stone images. The area is surrounded by temples and shrines and it seems like walking through a living history museum. Some of the mustsee attractions in Kathmandu Valley include Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa, and the Temple of Kumari.

6. Pashupatinath Temple
Though all the shrines, temples and monasteries have their own unique beauty and relevant story, The Pashupatinath Temple is a must-see. This temple which was constructed way back in the year 1696 on the banks of the Bagmati River is now known to be the most important Hindu temple in Nepal. The temple was designed in a classic pagoda style, with a gilded rooftop, four silver-plated doors and beautifully carved rafters. Though, Non-Hindus are not allowed inside the temple premises, but a glimpse of Lord Shiva’s bull, Nandi, can be seen from the outside. Fair enough.
