Top 4 Reasons To Visit Nepal This Holiday Season
After the 2015 disastrous earthquake the country of Nepal has recovered quite well and still the hot favorite destination for travel lovers. The reasons are simple: the people here are friendly, the views are exceptional, and of course it is home to some amazing trekking destinations. Mentioned below are our top 5 reasons to plan a Nepal tour in 2018.
Trek the mighty Everest Base Camp (EBC):
People from all over the globe flock to Nepal to trek the EBC! At a height of 5,364m and some of the finest mountain vistas in the planet, a trek of 5-10 days is well worth the effort. Of course you will wish to take it slow & steady, with adequate training done in advance so that there’re no unexpected surprises while you are doing the 5-6 days trek. And yes, don’t forget to acclimatize.
Visit Kathmandu – Nepal’s Cultural Hub:
The capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu is a cultural hub & a place that you shouldn’t miss if you want to make the most of your time in Nepal. It is a disarray of smells, sounds and action that will introduce tourists to a different side of Nepal. Pay a trip to Durbar Square, dating back to the 3rd century, where the city’s kings were crowned & legitimized, enclosed by temples and courtyards. During 2015, the city has been badly affected by a serious earthquake, but the spirit of the city lives on & travelers continues to travel this beautiful capital city of Nepal.
Trek the Annapurna Circuit:
The Annapurna Circuit is one of the world’s finest hiking routes, starting in Pokhara. It covers between 160 to 230km at an elevation of 5,416m on the Thorung La Pass, touching the border of the Tibetan plateau. It is a tough trip, taking more than one days usually anticlockwise because of the more gradual gradient, traversing through a variety of landscapes as well as, of course, the famous and dramatic Himalayan mountains.
Witness the world heritage sites:
You would be hard pressed to discover a place with quite as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as Nepal – In Kathmandu Valley alone, there’re 7 sites, with extra ones in Chitwan National Park & Lumbini. So if you have got a plan to explore as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as you can, a Nepal Bhutan Tibet tour will definitely be your best bet.
So pack on your trekking shoes and other essential item and visit Nepal this holiday season!
