Nepal Sightseeing

Nepal is most famous for being home to the world’s tallest mountain – Mount Everest. Travellers from all over the world come to gawk at the mammoth mountain, and to appreciate it in its entire splendor. But there’s so much more beyond Mount Everest: the bustling city of Kathmandu, temple complexes scattered around the country, and so much more. Nepal sightseeing never gets tiresome.

Seeing Mount Everest is not to be missed. As a traveller, you can comfortably hike to the base camp while exploring Sherpa villages along the way. Make it to the summit of Kala Pattar and then watch the sun set on Mount Everest. Trek up the lesser travelled Thame Valley, and visit the ancient Thame monastery. Other ancient monasteries include Khumjung and Thyangboche. See the views of the Khumbu Valley from the Khonde ridge. It’s all well worth it for views of the peaks of Amadablam, Pumori, Cho Oyu, and Makalu.

Spend some time in Kathmandu while you’re there. There are four cultural heritage sites in the city that are UNESCO World Heritage listed sites. One of them is Pashupatinath, considered to be the most important Hindu temple to Lord Shiva in the world. It’s located on the beautiful Bagmati River. Another heritage site is Boudhanath, a very holy Buddhist site on the outskirts of town. There’s also Swoyambhunath, an ancient religious complex on a hill in Kathmandu Valley – also known as the “Monkey Temple” thanks to its holy monkeys. Be sure to also visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, with its unique architecture and many skillful artists displaying their wares.

Nepal has unlimited natural wonders, including great wildlife viewing opportunities. You may even be fortunate enough to spot a Bengal tiger! Take the road to Naubise, to Chitwan National Park. This national park was established in 1973 and covers a huge territory. Here you’ll have the opportunity to see elephants, monkeys, deer, wild peacocks, and horned rhinos (if you’re lucky). Take a boat ride on the Rapti River, and you might see some crocodiles.

Nepal Sightseeing Continued...

Another Nepal location for sightseeing is Pokhara. Pokhara city is best known for its lake, Phewa Tal, and the beautiful view of the Annapurna mountain range. The lake is particularly stunning for its crystal clear waters. Check out the view from the Peace Pagoda, and visit the International Mountain Museum. Be sure to swing by Davi’s Falls, and the Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave. You’ll find plenty of shops and boutiques here selling all kinds of excellent wares to bring home from the lake.

To really see how the locals live, why not try a homestay in a Sirubari village? This means you’d be living with a family, and experiencing village life first hand. There’s no better way to get to know Nepal and its wonderful people, especially while doing it all in a mountain range.
