Nepal Heritage-History Tour

Temples, tigers, Himalayas, and jungles: Nepal has only been opening its borders to travellers since the 1950s, but it’s made quite an impression on all those who have visited since then. After all, it’s the famous launching point to accessing Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, and mountain life is a vital part of Nepalese culture. While most come to hike, trek, and explore, it’s important to incorporate some knowledge of this mysterious country into your journey. That’s why some sightseeing on a Nepal heritage-history tour is highly recommended!

First up, take some time to get to know Kathmandu. The hills of Nagarkot are covered in terraces, and they’re beautiful to see. From here you’ll also get the best sunset and sunrise views over the Himalayas, and you can thus begin to feel the magic that surrounds Nepal. Back in the city, start in Bhaktapur Durbar Square, where you can access special spots like the Bhairava Nath Temple, which is dedicated to the god of terror and death. If that’s not exciting enough for you, try Nyatapola Temple, the highest pagoda ever built in Nepal. Be sure to also visit the famous Monkey Temple!

Continue on to the Lion’s Gate, a magnificent structure created by artists whose hands were cut off after finishing their creation so the jealous Bhadgoun king could ensure the masterpiece would never be recreated. From there you can go sightseeing at Pashupati Nath, Bouddha Nath, and Patan Durbar Square. And no trip is complete without an introduction to Nepalese food! Try Pulao, the fried rice dish. The most popular kind is vegetarian, often seasoned with turmeric and cumin. Then there’s Dal Bhat, a rice dish with lentils and accompanied by sides, like pickles or curried dishes. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though – you should also try Momo (dumplings), Thukpa (a hot noodle soup), and Sel Roti (a baked breakfast treat)…among others!
