Nepal is the place you see travellers from all over the world. You respect Hinduism and Buddhism both. See that you carry bottled water every where. One has to be careful while eating unbaked food. In general people are very helpful in nature.

Nepal Overview

Cosily nestled between India and Tibet and stretching from the majestic Himalayas to the dense forests of the Terai, Nepal offers a picturesque landscape that can instil a sense of calm even in the most restless soul. An international destination that houses the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest, it is an easy getaway from India.

Why You Should Visit

Nepal has three big takeaways as to why people visit here many times over.

The colossal mountains that dot the landscape of Nepal can evoke a sense of adventure that lies dormant. The mighty Himalayas offer trekkers, from novices to professionals, a journey through some of the most picturesque landscapes in the world.

The architectural feats of the mountain republic are a great way to experience the rich cultural heritage of Nepal. From the birthplace of the Buddha to the largest Shiv Temple in the world, one can see the culture of Nepal take tangible shape through its architecture.

A trip to an exotic land so close to home couldn't get more affordable and convenient. One can even stay in Nepal for more than a month, considering that staying there doesn’t take a toll on your pocket.

Tourist Hotspots

Kathmandu and Pokhara are the two primary destinations in Nepal.

Kathmandu is an important religious destination for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Pashupatinath Temple is located within this ancient city. It is also a popular shopping destination owing to the inflow of goods from all over the world.

Pokhara, another important tourist destination, is just a stone's throw away from the lofty Annapurna Range. The Gurkha Memorial Museum, a commemoration of the feats of the fearless Gurkha soldiers, is based here.

Ideal Itinerary

A typical tour of Nepal can ideally be completed in about six days and five nights. When in Kathmandu, one can check out the local attractions. This can be followed up by taking excursions to nearby destinations such as Patan, Bhaktapur and Nagarkot. All the above places are located within the Kathmandu Valley. It will take about two days to explore Pokhara completely where, apart from the local attractions, there are many adventurous activities that cater to thrill seekers, such as paragliding and ziplining.

Best Time to Visit

A good time to head to Nepal would be in during March and April when spring is in full swing and the Rhododendron flower is in full bloom across the country. Many people are so enamoured by Nepal's beauty that they often visit again. It's no surprise then that the Nepal Tourism Board’s motto for Nepal is "Once is not enough"!

Visa Requirements

Due to the unique diplomatic relations between India and Nepal, Indians do not require a visa when entering the country. They must, however, have a proper identification document to prove that they are citizens of India. These documents include a passport, driver's license, election card, ration card, photo ID by a government agency or any other documents recognised by the Government of India. This makes travel to Nepal convenient, to say the least.

So, get your backpacks ready and traverse the delightful climes of this tiny country that’s teeming with culture and history.
