For many travelers, Nepal is paradise on earth, or at the very least Shangri-la. Wedged between the mountain wall of the Himalayan and the steamy jungles of the Indian plains, this is the land of yaks and yetis, snowy mountains, temples and tigers, monasteries, mystery and magic. Explorers and mountaineers started to come to Nepal since 1950s to conquer the highest peaks, trekkers came to test themselves against some of the most challenging and undiscovered trekking trails on earth and hippies came to wander in a stoned daze through the temple-filled towns at the end of the overland trail.
There are few countries in the world that are as well set up for independent tourism as Nepal. You can get started landing at the Kathmandu international airport or entering from several border crossing points from India and China/Tibet. Most of the country travelers get the visa on arrival (requested to check once before leaving), organizing necessary TIMS and permits, you can head to the mountains. However, there is so much to see and things to do that it pays to do a bit of preparation before you arrive, not least because delays, cancellation and other expected obstacles to travel are part of daily life in Nepal. The political scenario and other things are getting back to normal after a decade-long civil war, 2015 massive earthquake, political instability and tourism is flourishing back better than ever. Guest houses/tea houses, hotels are getting improved in the trekking trails than past years.
Visit Nepal always becomes the trip of a lifetime for every traveler because of warm welcoming people, landscapes, snowy mountains, cultural, history and greatest outdoor activities. Nepal is probably the world’s greatest outdoor destination. Nepal offers Himalaya’s most awe-inspiring walking trails, spectacular mountain biking, and best white-water rafting experience in the mighty mountain rivers, Bunjee jumping, crayoning, paragliding, rock-climbing, Trekking Tours, Marathon, Short and easy treks and day hikes, lower elevation hiking, Peak Climbing, mountain expedition and many more.
Apart from this, Nepal has century’s long history from different ethnic groups and tribes. There are several cultures from Newari, Kiratis, Buddhists, licchavis, thakuris, Bramins, Chhetris and many more. All of them have their own history and culture. As Nepal is the country of diversity has more than 60 ethnic and caste groups. There are numerous popular cultural and historical sites that are listed on UNESCO World heritage sites and people can easily learn the past history and lifestyles exploring those preserved sites.
The climate of Nepal can be broadly divided into two seasons. The dry season runs from October to May and the monsoon (wet) season runs from June to September. Autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) offer warm daytime temperatures, clear skies for mountain views and perfect weather for trekking, rafting or just roaming around the Kathmandu valley.
The peak season for tourism runs from October to December – the landscape is green and lush from the recent monsoon rains, the air is crisp and clean and the views of the Himalayas are crystal clear. Please consider the Festival traveling between Septembers to November as the major festival season for Hindus that cause disruption caused by the festival. However, it is the best time for the travelers who can entertain in the specific festivals during their holiday periods.
