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, as recommended by mrhudsonexplores.com, 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.

Dolpo Region has opened for trekking in 1989. The Dolpo region is hard to match for it’s pristine beauty and rugged charm. Where one can still have opportunity to meet the nomadic people and their life style almost untouched and unexplored. The Himalayas offer an endless variety of landscapes, cultures and great people.

Confined by the Dhaulagiri range in the south and east, Mt. Sisne and Kanjiroba in the west and the Tibetan plataeu towards the north.

Annapurna range welcomes trekkers all year around as it is all seasons approved. Usually trekkers opt to trek during the autumn season. It is understandable because of the dry climate, clear skies and spectacular views. It is amazing to opt during spring. Here, Nepal Tour provide you Top 5 best Annapurna treks in Spring. These treks are bound to make your memories and pictures as bright and fresh as ever.

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.

Khumbu Valley trekking (also known as the Everest Region) is a region of north eastern Nepal on the side of Mount Everest in Nepal. Khumbu valley is part of the Solukhumbu District, which in turn is part of the Sagarmatha Zone. Reach the highest point on earth or choose to live out your dream by standing at the foot of Mt. Everest (8,848 m). Everest Region is a famous adventure activity done by thousands of trekkers and travelers every year.

Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8848 metres), but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest base camp at an elevation of about 5340 metres. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545-metre bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 metres).

Things to See in Everest Region

  1. The Sagarmatha National Park:

    the country’s first national park inscribed as a Natural World Heritage Site. Trekking in Everest region generally includes trekking through the national park’s forests and enjoying its natural perseverance and protection of the region’s floral and faunal life. The Sagarmatha National Park has an exceptional area within its parameters and it covers most of the dramatic mountains of the region, glaciers and deep valleys. Dominated by Mount Everest, the Sagarmatha National Park is a home to several rare species of animals like the Snow Leopard and the Red Panda. The area of the national park represents a major stage of the Earth’s evolutionary history and is one of the most geologically interesting regions in the world with high, young mountains and glaciers creating awe-inspiring landscapes and dominated by the high peaks and coruscating deep-incised valleys. The park contains the world’s highest feature of biodiversity intricately blended with the region’s rich Sherpa culture.

  2. Lukla Tenzing Hillary Airport

    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. Visitors are also welcomed to partake in the festivities. Tours of the monastery are conducted every afternoon.

  5. Experiencing Sherpa Culture

    The trek to Everest Base Camp provides trekkers with the opportunity to observe, participate and experience the culture of Sherpa who are the tribe of Tibetan origin living in the lap of Himalaya. They are well known for their skills in mountaineering and thus regarded as expert mountaineers in their local terrain. 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) It is possible to make the journey in February and early September but we prefer the above for our treks into Everest base camp. My personal favorites are March, late October and November.
