Recommended places to visit in Nepal
Brimming with history, time-worn temples and ancient pagodas, Kathmandu has plenty to captivate even the well-seasoned traveller. Wander through the medieval Kathmandu Durbar Square – home to more than fifty stunning temples and shrines, take in highlights like the beautiful Swayambhunath stupa and hop on a rickshaw for a glimpse of life in the city’s streets.
With picturesque lakes and stunning panoramic views, it’s no wonder by Pokhara is a favourite amongst travellers travelling to the Himalayas. Not only is Pokhara the gateway to the magnificent Annapurna Mountain range, it is also home to the beautiful Lake Phewa. Its stunning reflective waters dotted with brightly coloured boats make for the perfect photo op!
While most travellers come to Nepal in search of magnificent mountain ranges, ancient monasteries and spiritual well-being, its national parks are not to be forgotten. Hailed as one of the finest national parks in Asia, Chitwan dates back to 1973 and is home to some of the last one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tigers, sloth bears and more.
With a laid-back atmosphere, little to no traffic on the streets and ancient temples, Bhaktapur has a charm you won’t be able to resist. Stroll through Potter’s Square scattered potter wheels and freshly made clay pots out to dry. If you fancy yourself a bit of an artist you can try your hand at making your own and add it to the collection.
Hidden away in the mountain ranges of Sagarmatha National Park in north-eastern Nepal, the Gokyo Lakes are certainly a sight to behold with their turquoise waters set against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks. If time allows these lakes are best seen from above, on a trek around the region.
Everest Base Camp
Rising 8848 metres above sea level, Everest is arguably the most famous mountain on earth and claims the title as the world’s highest. While reaching the summit is beyond contemplation for most, Everest Base Camp is still challenging but a tad more achievable. If you fancy doing something monumental this year, Everest awaits!
I had a wonderful time! The organization of the trip was very good and everything ran smoothly, thanks to Laxman, our guide, who was very knowledgeable and efficient.
Im am looking forward to going to Africa next year, with On the Go of course. ”
