What To Expect In Nepal
Nepal is just one of the best places to see the best of the Himalayas. In other words Nepal is the wonderland of the Himalayas. It is home to the highest peaks in the world and a number of glacier fed rivers originate from here and drain in Bay of Bengal forming the main river systems of a big part of North India.
There are plenty of beautiful places to see in Nepal, often difficult to rank them in terms of beauty. Missing even one of them can be enough to make you think that the trip was incomplete.
Listed below are the places that all Nepal tour packages from Kolkata, Bangalore, Gujarat or from anywhere should ideally include.
Know the Places to Visit in Nepal
Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, surely does justice to its status as the capital of the country, offering what is essentially a melting pot of everything that you might witness while you are in Nepal. It has a little bit of almost every aspect from different parts of the country, and seeing these is sure to trigger the thirst in you to explore more of it.
Kathmandu is also home to one of Hinduism’s most respected temples in the form of Pashupatinath Temple.
You cannot really consider that you have visited a place unless you try the local cuisine, and Kathmandu is the best place in the world to delve into Nepali dishes.
Pokhara is one of the best destinations in Nepal. You will definitely regret it if you miss a visit to Pokhara. Pokhara is a laidback place where tourists can relax, take things easy, eat some of the nicest foods, visit pubs and disco, go for trekking and indulge in shopping.
Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna group of mountains. It is one of the best and perhaps safest place in the entire world to try paragliding. What is remarkable is the tranquility that Pokhara offers – this is something you hardly find anywhere despite so many possibilities for tourists.
You can also go for river rafting in River Seti which flows on the flanks of Pokhara.
Chitwan National Park
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Chitwan National Park is simply one of the most awesome forest in the entire world. With an area of around 934 square kilometers, this national park is home to the elusive one-horned rhinoceros.
There is always a remote change that you may actually come across a Royal Bengal tiger on a forest safari. In addition, there is said to be around 543 species of birds in Chitwan National Park. Enjoy a few days at Chitwan National Park.
Sagarmatha National Park
A source of quite a substantial revenue for the Nepalese Government, Sagarmatha National Park is one of the loveliest places you can see anywhere. There are fauna like musk deer, red panda, Himalayan black bear and exquisite snow leopard. Himalayan wolves are also plentiful in this park.
As you can see, nature is bountiful in Nepal and there is just so much to see. It may get difficult to cover everything in a single trip, so you will need to go back a few times to experience everything.
