Nepal Travel Guide

Nepal is a landlocked country in Southern Asia. It is located in the Himalayas and bordered to the north by the People's Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the Republic of India. Nepal has a rich geography. It contains eight of the world's 10 highest peaks, including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, called Sagarmatha in Nepali. The mountainous north has eight of the world's ten tallest mountains. It contains more than 240 peaks over 20,000 ft (6,096 m) above sea level. Nepal recently was declared a republic and has abolished the monarchy.

The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal is a land of scenic mountains, time–worn temples and some of the best walking trails on Earth. It's a small country, but it's rich in scenic splendour and exotic cultures. The people of Nepal are as diverse as their country and represent distinct cultures and races, and speak a variety of tongues.

As a traveller, there are an endless number of surprises in Nepal, in particular, Kathmandu Valley with its thousands of Hindu temples, Buddhist Stupas, stunning architecture and rich pageantry can be quite beyond words, and probably offers as exotic and urban an experience as you can get.

Beyond Kathmandu, it's another world altogether. Most travellers to Nepal want to check out the truly spectacular Himalayas along with the higher hills. A few go to scale the high mountains, but many are nature lovers who trek along landscapes filled with deep valleys, lush forests, snow trails, terraced fields, and above all, the most hospitable people.

Travellers to Nepal also love making a safari trip to one of the National Parks in Nepal. The most popular one is the Chitwan National Park in the southern plains which hosts a diverse wildlife reserves including the rare Asian one–horn rhino.

Things to See

Kathmandu
The Capital and home to Nepal's only International Airport is a buzzing vibrant place, although like so many capital cities in the developing world it begins to show signs of congestion over the past few years, this hardly detracts from its mystery and celebration of life. So much history interwoven and sitting strangely in harmony with the modern Kathmandu. Ancient temples in a medieval atmosphere sit side by side with Internet cafes.

Patan
Patan (The city of beauty) is situated on the southern bank of the holy river Bagamti (a tributary of the Ganges) some five kilometres southeast of Kathmandu. Nowadays, it has virtually become part of sub metropolitan Kathmandu. The city is famed for its wealth of Buddhist and Hindu temples and abundance of fine bronze gateways and wonderful carvings. Patan is known for its expert craftsmen and metal workers.

Bhaktapur
Bhaktapur is situated 14 km east of Kathmandu and is the least developed of the three cities in the valley. Translated Bhaktapur means the city of devotees. The most laid back of the three valley towns its narrow brick paved streets harbour hidden shrines and statues around every corner. It is quite easy to spend a whole day here relaxing and taking in an almost surreal atmosphere. Bhaktapur is famed for its woodcarvings, pottery and cloth weaving.

Safari
The southern belt of Nepal is known as the Terai. It is a lowland covered with dense subtropical forest. Here you will find some of Nepal's National Parks and Game Reserves which offer some of the finest Wildlife experiences in Asia. There are 14 national parks and wildlife reserves in the Kingdom, Royal Chitwan National Park, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, and Royal Bardiya National Park are most famous and popular.

Endangered species such as one–horned rhinos, Bengal tigers, and Gharial crocodiles abound on the ground, while uncountable species of birds and butterflies dominate the air. The indigenous Tharu ethnic group lives in the lowland Terai areas around the parks areas, and provide a surprising cultural contrast to the mountain peoples of the north. Nepal's parks and reserves offer incredible Wildlife viewing opportunities just choose the best one to suit your time and interests. You can go deep into the jungle on elephant back or four–wheel drive to view wild animals in their natural habitat. A Jungle Safari experience in Nepal includes canoeing, nature walks, bird watching, excursions, and visits to an ethnic Tharu village.

Cuisine

The Nepali national meal is daal bhaat tarkaari. It is essentially spiced lentils poured over boiled rice, and served with tarkari: vegetables such as mustard greens, daikon radish, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, cauliflower, cabbage, and cooked with spices. 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.
