Are you thinking any Trip to Nepal Cost can be a daunting task. Where to start? How to budget? Where to go? What to do? What do you need to prepare?. The good news is everything you need to plan your trip to Nepal is on Nepal Visitors.
Nepal’s tourism is largely centred around trekking and it does attract a fair amount of wealthy visitors as well as backpackers. As a result there are facilities to cater for them in some areas, which can provide you with some temptation to stray above $30/day. By extending your budget to $40 you can add a little bit of luxury into your trip by staying in nicer hotels and dining out at more tourist-geared restaurants from time to time. It will also give you more room to do extra trips and visit more of the best trekking trails, which typically cost $30 to enter.
How much money will you need in Nepal? NRS 3,902 ($38) is the average daily price for traveling in Nepal. The average price of food for one day is NRS 1120 ($10.60). The average price of a hotel for a couple is NP₨2,818 ($27). These average travel prices have been collected from other travelers to help you plan your own travel budget.
However if you are looking for more organised trekking expeditions, which is highly recommended if you’re not experienced, then even this budget won’t cover for that. The Trip to Nepal Cost can be quite high for guided trips and to reach the highest points in the Himalayas, it will take many days, which clearly is going to be quite expensive.
If trekking is likely to be the main or a major focus of your trip then use these budgets for the days you won’t be trekking and find a good company for the days you will and research the costs in advance. Here are 5 of the best short treks in Nepal along with an idea of the pricing.
UNESCO protected Durbar Square is a popular spot when backpacking Nepal. A square filled with history of rulers and royalty (Durbar literally means palace). Many of the buildings around the square are actually older than the square itself; Kasthamandap is the oldest building in the valley, at three stories and made out of wood it’s a beautiful ancient sight to awe at. You can easily spend a day wandering the streets, exploring the temples, people watching and enjoying a refreshing beer on one of the rooftop cafes.
Don’t leave Kathmandu without spending some time at the Hanuman Dhoka. Nepal’s Royal palace has some incredible history; founded in the 4th to 8th centuries AD and then expanded to what it is now in the seventeenth century by the king. You can easily spend a day exploring the sprawling palace and it’s 10 courtyards. Plus it is free to enter if you have a ticket to visit Durbar Square! Sadly the palace felt the effects of the 2015 Earthquake and some areas are undergoing repairs. Don’t let this stop you from visiting, most of the palace is now accessible and restored to its previous beauty.
