Nepal is a country known for the highest mountains in the world: 7 of the 10 existing peaks over 8000 m are found here. "Trekking" and "Mountaineering" are the buzz words with focus on the Pokhara and Everest regions. But there is more, like medieval Kathmandu, wonderful nature, Rhinos and shopping. Unfortunately Nepal is also one of the poorest countries on the planet and many Nepalese leave home to work abroad. And sometimes the country gets hit by huge earthquakes.
Below are our most visited cities, destinations and national parks in Nepal.
Kathmandu, capital of Nepal and a very crowded place. People have children and all come to the capital to have a better life. Kathmandu is the starting point for any mountaineering in the Himalayas and it is good shopping here for anything warm, with a brand-name, without actually being the brand... The real highlights are the old parts of the city (square) plus Patan, the great Buddhinath Stupa and the burning ghat.
Chitwan National Park has wildlife like Rhinoceros (and Tiger). You see the animals on the back of an elephant, to be safe and dry.
Pokhara is the starting point for treks in the Western Himalayas. It used to be small, but has grown significantly. Some wealthier Nepalese have settled here. A morning canoeing experience on the lake can be really beautiful, if weather and views on Annapurna and Machu Puchare mountains allow.
Namche Bazaar (10)
Namche Bazaar is a village in the central Himalaya Mountains both used for trading and touristic purposes. It is rather close to Mt. Everest and therefore a starting point for many treks that lead to the world´s highest mountain.
