About Nepal Tourism
Nepal is a world-class tourist destination in all ways imaginable. From tours of age-old UNESCO World Heritage Sites, to distinguished jungle safaris, to treks that give you views of 8 of the 10 highest peaks in the world, Nepal has it all. Where else can you come face to face with a wild Royal Bengal tiger and Mount Everest in the same week?
Nepal has something for everyone. If you are interested in the rich, diverse culture of this small, landlocked country, take a cultural tour. Experience the culture in its purest form. Imagine the situation: you arrive in Kathmandu and the next day, you visit an ancient Hindu temple and cremation site. Minutes later, you head over to one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world, seeing Tibetan refugees and other devotees circumnavigating the stupa. That same day, you might make a visit to Kathmandu Durbar Square and see the Kumari – the Living Goddess. Two days later, you are on the Everest Base Camp trail, in awe at the desolate, majestic mountain landscape and heartwarming hospitality of the local Sherpa people. This is all possible in Nepal.
There is a special kind of spiritual fulfillment one gets while trekking in the Himalayas. But if trekking isn’t your thing, there is still plenty to do. Check out the Terai region in southern Nepal. Two famed wildlife reserves lie here: Chitwan National Park and Bardiya National Park. Here, you have a chance to see the Royal Bengal tiger, the Asian elephant, the greater one-horned rhino, Gangetic dolphin, swamp deer, and dozens of other species. Nepal holds 9% of the world’s total bird species, so these national parks are also a bird watcher’s paradise.
If you are more into the spiritual experiences and want to explore that side of Nepal, you won’t be disappointed. Make a visit to Lumbini – the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Learn about the roots of Buddhism as you explore the nearly dozen monasteries there, which represent various countries. Study Buddhist teachings or simply meditate in the peaceful atmosphere of this quiet place. Or, combine the ancient practice of yoga with an exhilarating trip to Everest Base Camp on the Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek. Beyond that, there are literally dozens of other opportunities for spiritual exploration in Nepal. Take a meditation retreat, learn about astrology or Ayurveda, or participate in one of the countless festivals at a famous pilgrimage site! Even if you don’t come to Nepal for a spiritual experience, there is a good chance you will have one.
