Nepal is well known for being one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The magnificent mountains, rustling rivers, colourful people, religions and rich cultural heritages make Nepal a travellers paradise.

Mantled with the high Himalaya to the north, Nepal is a land of scenic splendour, age-old temples, diverse cultures, exotic wildlife and some of the friendliest people in the world. All these combine to offer a medley of experience to the visitor in a country that stretches roughly 885 km east to west and 193 km north to south. Little wonder, those visiting Nepal return home with a longing to come back again and again.

Very few countries in the world can offer as many varieties of adventure tourism packages as Nepal. Of the 14 peaks above 8000 meters in the world eight are located in Nepal. It is the land Mount Everest (8848 meters), the highest peak in the world and other 1310 mountain peaks.

For those who can not withstand the rigorousness of mountain climbing there are mountain flights which fly around the Mount Everest and provide a close look of the top of the world. Trekking is the best way to get to interesting and remote mountain villages of Nepal and to enjoy views of the famous peaks together with their lifestyle untouched with modern civilization.

River rafting represents another major attractions. Within distance of 100 miles, one can see the topographical variations with the rivers rising from the higher points near Nepal's Tibetan border and then dropping dramatically to lower levels the plains bordering India.

 

For the less adventures, Pokhara, the lake city of Nepal, is not to be missed. You can do swimming, canoeing and boating along with the sightseeing of majestic panoramic views in its background. Pokhara is a tropical spot with an altitude of about 900 meters from where one can see the mountain crossing over 8000 meters.

Kathmandu possesses several historical monuments, old palaces and palace squares, shrines and temples, ageless traditions and legends all make it a living museum that any visitor would cherish its vivid memory in ones heart for ever.

The Nepali national meal is daal bhaat tarkaari (spiced lentils, boiled rice, vegetable curry). This is served in most Nepalese homes and teahouses. If rice is scarce the grain part may be cornmeal mush called Ato, barley, or chapatis (whole wheat 'tortillas'). The meal may be accompanied by dahi (yogurt) and a small helping of ultra-spicy fresh chutney or achar (pickle). Traditionally this meal is eaten with the right hand.

The weather is probably the best guide for deciding when to plan your trip to Nepal. October and November are considered the best times of the year. The monsoon will have just ended, and clear skies with optimal temperature will prevail. The main festivals of Dashain and Tihar (Hindu equivalent of Christmas in terms of festivity) fall during these months. However, this is also the busiest tourist season, and the main tourist centers and trekking trails tend to be crowded with travellers like you.

This is definitely the best time to travel to Nepal. With the conflict ended tourism is gearing up again and now the prices are excellent so don't miss this opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
