Think of Nepal and Mount Everest comes to mind. Nepal is predominantly Hindu and in addition to seven of the highest peaks in the world it has a plethora of enchanting tourist attractions to make your stay seem all too short. The Kathmandu Valley is the prime attraction of Pokhara and its wildlife being the other. In between you have Chitwan National Park where you can take an elephant safari, numerous hill resorts where you can pass a day or two and explore the forbidding regions of Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang. You could take time off to visit Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha or just indulge yourself in any of the numerous activities this scenic destination offers as food for the soul.


Nepal the most mountainous country on earth lying between India and the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China, Nepal contains Mount Everest (29,035 ft; 8,850 m), the tallest mountain in the world. Its southern border has a strip of level land that is partly forested, partly cultivated. North of that is the slope of the central section of the Himalayan range, including Everest and many other peaks higher than 8,000 m.

Pokhara is home to the lovely Phewa Lake the Barahi Temple dedicated to the Ajima incarnation of Shakti and the Seti River, all of which are unforgettable. Chitwan National Park is another must-visit place with its mix of Rivers, grasslands, and forests. Nepal is just as attractive a destination for adventure activities as it is for exploring scenic wonders. You can go for mountaineering, trekking, rock climbing, rafting, a jungle safari, paragliding, hunting, and bungee jumping. There is so much to do and see in Nepal that a short visit of 3 or 4 days is just not enough. Plan for a longer stay if you truly wish to enjoy all that Nepal and its rich culture offer.
