And when we talk about the Nepalese Himalayas, these are certainly different from those in Western countries.

Our Himalayas stands tall over 8000 meters, and our hills easily over 1000 meters. Most find these mountains intimidating, but they are simply mesmerizing when looked at closely. One should definitely visit Nepal just to witness the bewildering mountains of Nepal. However, some can find long journeys to mountains- tiring. In that case, try different activities in Nepal or simply other countries.

Nepal’s major tourist activities include wilderness and adventure tourism activities such as mountain biking, bungee jumping, rock climbing and mountain climbing, trekking, hiking, bird watching, mountain flights, ultralight aircraft flights, paragliding and hot air ballooning over the mountains of the Himalaya.

The Beautiful Lakes

Nepal is not just home to some of the world’s highest mountains but also boasts beautiful and picturesque lakes in the Himalayan landscape. You may not know, but Nepal is the second richest country in inland water resources; Nepal is blessed with more than 6,000 rivers, 3,252 glaciers, and 2,323 glacial lakes.

The towering mountains and glaciers are the sources of rivers and lakes. The elegance of lakes in the mountains and mid-hill attract travelers from around the globe. Also, over the years, local enthusiast travelers have shown a keen interest in exploring the beautiful lakes in Nepal.

The lakes in Nepal at higher altitudes have a religious significance, calling pilgrims from around the world. While some lakes, with their sheer beauty, are among the favorite travel destinations.

Other lakes are known for their unique features and spectacular exquisiteness. Needless to say, some lakes in Nepal are well-known for their unmatched and notable traits, signing in the world record.

The Culture, Acceptance of Religion & Unique Festivals

Most of Nepal’s population practice Hinduism, but as already mentioned with the many stupas around, there is a heavy Buddhist influence, and also some Kiratism, Islam and Christianity, although in smaller populations.

Because of this diversity of religion and multiculturalism, travelling around different parts of Nepal and learning about each region’s customs is an enlightening experience and shows what a unique place it is to visit.

The Culture, Acceptance of Religion & Unique Festivals
The Culture, Acceptance of Religion & Unique Festivals | Reasons to visit Nepal

The varied culture of Nepal is seen through its many festivals. Nepalis celebrate numerous festivals throughout the year, much like the Indians. Major festivals include Dashain (Nepali equivalent of Durga Puja) which marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura.

It is one of the most anticipated festivals of the year and is celebrated by Nepali Hindus with great pomp and joy for fifteen days in the month of Ashvin (September-October). Tihar (Diwali), also called as Swanti and Yamapanchak by some communities, is another famous festival celebrated for five days. In addition to decorating the houses with lights, animals are also worshipped during this period.

Meet the Friendliest Peoples

Nepalese People are exceedingly warm and welcoming. Firstly Nepali people are friendly, warm and welcoming people who are proud of their traditions, religion, music and culture. They believe guests are God and always try to make you feel at home.

They never fail to serve you tea and offer you help when needed. Ask a friend who has visited Nepal before and they will tell you how friendly the Nepali people are. It is little wonder that there comes such a saying that while you first come to Nepal for the mountains, you return here for the people.

The People of Nepal are friendly. Often when you are confused looking at the map or different direction they will come forth and ask you were you want to go and give you direction as well. They offer you seat in croweded bus. They never ignore you if you initiate to talk unless they think you are dangerous. I think these are great examples of their friendliness.

Best Spot For One Horn Rhinos and Bengal Tigers

Not many people think of Nepal as a place abundant with wildlife, but oh, how wrong they’d be. Nepal has a large, diverse population of bird species, and if that’s not hardcore enough, head to Chitwan or Bardia National Park for a safari, tracking down crocodiles, rhinos, deers and the elusive Bengal Tiger.

It’s also one of the few countries which is the habitat of clouded leopards (like leopards with bigger spots, but much more elusive), living high in the mountains, thought until recently to be extinct in Nepal.

Bardia National Park, in the far west of Nepal, is much less-visited than Chitwan, so offers a more rugged safari experience. While Royal Bengal Tigers live in various parts of Nepal, and are pretty elusive, you have a chance of spotting them here.

Ranging from the charisma of chilly mountains to the tranquillity of wildlife, Nepal presents the best variety of safaris. So, as you plan your trip to this beautiful country, make sure you witness the beauty of nature.

    Lukla Airport, which was renamed the Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008, is both extremely small and extremely busy. With its short runaway, steep incline, and quickly changing weather, Lukla has one of the most challenging runways in the world.

    In fact, for the past 20 years it has been named the most dangerous airport in the world. High winds, low lying clouds and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a huge factor in the frequent cancellation of flights. Lukla is a gateway for Everest region trek.

  3. Explore the Namche Bazaar:

    Namche Bazaar is a town and in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality in Solukhumbu District of Province No. 1 of north-eastern Nepal. It is located within the Khumbu area at 3,440 metres at its low point, populating the sides of a hill. Most Sherpa who are in the tourism business are from the Namche area. Every Saturday morning, Namche Bazaar lights up with its weekly market gusto. The market is a spotlight in the middle of the town, and traders from Tibet and other villages come with the pieces of arts and goods to attract the hearts of their potential customers.

  4. Visit Tengboche Monastery

    Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of Nepal, probably because of its unrivalled backdrop of Mount Ama Dablam. Tengboche Monastery is the leading Buddhist centre in the Khumbu with a residing Rinpoche who blesses pilgrims and travelers to the area.

    Every October / November, Tengboche Monastery hosts the colorful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with religious gathering, songs, dances, enactments of legends.

    You can go to different places such as Dudh Koshi, Lukla, and Namche Bazar during the trek. These places depict the lifestyle of Sherpas and help to make ones trip a memorable one.

Best Time to Travel in Khumbu Region:

There are two distinct trekking seasons. The best months to trek to Everest base camp are pre-monsoon (February, March, April and May) and post monsoon (late September, October, November and December).

When can I treks Annapurna

June through September is the monsoon season, when as much as 70% of the annual rainfall occurs. This is also when rock fall and landslides are most likely to occur. That leaves two times when hiking the Annapurna Circuit is best: October through November and mid-March to mid-April.

Annapurna Trek Difficulty

The Annapurna trek is considered to be a moderate trek. It doesn’t involve technical climbing but it’s good to have some hiking experience. The Annapurna trek will go through different terrain and the roads will change.

You may encounter jeep roads that get muddy after a rainfall, rock steps, steep ascents and descents full of loose rocks, and creeks crossing the trail in the most unexpected places just to name a few. The higher you climb, the harder the trek will become due to the altitude, so take some rest when needed and remember to acclimatize properly (max. 400m in altitude per day).

Is Annapurna Trek are risk

There is a risk since you will be hiking above 3000m. Different people react to altitude in different ways, no matter their fitness level or experience in the mountains. That’s why you should learn and understand what altitude sickness is and what the symptoms are beforehand.

You can ask your local travel medicine specialist, search online or attend one of the lectures organized in Kathmandu. There’s also an option to attend the high altitude sickness lecture in Manang organized by the Himalayan Rescue Association.

What is the lodging facility in Annapurna Trek

The whole Annapurna region has a teahouse facility, which means there are guesthouses in almost every village. Some are better than others, but generally rooms are basic and come with shared bathrooms. Blankets are provided but it’s a good idea to bring your own sleeping bag as it gets chilly in the higher levels and there are no heating systems inside the buildings.

Usually you will have to dine at your lodge in order to get a room. Some places may offer hot gas showers for an additional fee, so take advantage of that while you can because above Manang you won’t get the chance to shower at all until you reach Muktinath, on the other side of the pass.

Asia has so many amazing parts to it – as well as the beauty of Nepal, there’s also the bright metropolis of Singapore, the ancient traditions of Japan, or the countryside of the Philippines. Each country offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience to reward visitors who go off the well-beaten tourist tracks of these places. Here’s how you can do that in three of our best picks of Asia.



Singapore – take a tour at night

This small country encapsulates what modern Asia is all about: sleek, modern buildings, stunning structures and bright lights. When is it best to see the bright lights? At night, of course!

Take a river cruise and see the city from the water, or explore the Marina Bay area – which really comes alive once the sun sets. If there’s one place you go to after dark, though, it’s the Gardens by the Bay.

This is where you can stare up in awe at the Supertree Grove with its beautiful plants and light displays, then wander through the calming gardens after a day of sightseeing. You can maybe pop in to the Flower Dome for its continuous spring-like conditions that present visitors with bright blooms.

Japan – make traditional foods

If you think of Japan, you may have an image of buzzing cities, something kawaii or even the beautiful cherry blossoms in spring. Great though those images may be, you just can’t take that feeling back home with you when your trip comes to an end. What if you could?

Nothing gets our memories going more than a smell or taste of a meal that we’ve had before. It takes us back to that time and place, so going for a cooking class means you can try and recreate the experience when you’re back home. You can also get to learn more about the traditional Japanese culture through making your food and from your host.

You can book classes to make any of the local delicacies, from sushi to noodles to gyoza (dumplings). They can be booked in most of the larger, popular tourist towns and cities of Japan.



Philippines – see the rainforest

The capital city, Manila, can get hot and busy so it might not be for everyone at first, but it’s worth the trip because it’s a fantastic base to explore this gorgeous country.

One must-do experience is to visit the Masungi Georeserve. It’s just over an hour’s drive from Manila, but the views you get when you arrive (and on the road journey there) are more than worth it.

Make sure you take a sturdy pair of boots when you go; there are rope courses on the main trail, as well as a hanging bridge, and the terrain is not for the faint-hearted. Yet the adventure of trekking through this rainforest, and the reward you’ll get as you reach the summit of each peak and obstacle, will give you memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.
