Information about Nepal
Nepal tourism is extremely diverse in nature. On one hand, there are the exotic mountain trekking trails and the majestic, snow crests of the mighty Himalayas. On the other hand, there is the rich cultural heritage of the Newari people. Then again, there is wilderness in Chitwan and excitement in the Bhote Koshi River. The opportunities to enjoy oneself in Nepal are way too many. Before making the trip, or even before deciding on the itinerary, one should consult a Nepal travel guide to know everything there is to know about tourism in the country. The best places to visit, the best activities to do, the best shopping places, honeymoon destinations and romantic getaways and of course, the best trekking trails to explore.
Here is some more information about Nepal before you make your trip to the country.
Weather in Nepal: Nepal enjoys a subtropical climate, but the weather conditions and temperature vary according to the altitude. The latitudinal expanse of the country is very minimal. This, all the changes are brought about by the difference in altitude. In the lower valleys and plains, summers are warm and humid, rainfalls are heavy, and winters are pleasantly mild. In the higher altitudes along the mountain ranges, the climate is arctic. Summers are cool; monsoon sees snowfall and winters are bone-chilling cold.
Nightlife in Nepal: Most of Nepal’s nightlife is centred on its capital city Kathmandu. Youth mostly prefer to go clubbing and drinking in the many bars in Kathmandu. Sam’s Bar, Tom and Jerry’s have made a name for them for good service and live music. Rum Doodle is a place where every Everest climber came to drink a pint after the victory, including Edmund Hillary. Casinos like Casino Royale and Casino Everest are top-notch places to spend the night and do some gambling as well. Night-time shopping can be done in the ever-buzzing Thamel district. See Nepal vacation guide to find more places for nightlife scene in Nepal.
Food in Nepal: Food in Nepal is a lovely combination of Indian, Newari and Tibetan flavours. Dishes like thukpa, momo, noodles are very popular here, thanks to their Tibetan origin. Chatamari – a food item that looks like pizza is a popular Newari recipe. Another one is Sandheko, which is basically a bar snack of peanuts or potatoes stirred in chillies, spices, onions and coriander. Masu dishes or spicy curries of chicken, pork and lamb are popular too.
Shopping in Nepal: When you go shopping, consult a Nepal tour guide to show you the best places to buy things. Do not get cheated by hiked prices or fake products. Thamel is the perfect place to go shopping. It has everything under one roof or rather in one area since it is an open market. Handicraft items, metal works, silver jewellery, curio shops, handmade papers, hand woven pashmina, wood carvings and Tibetan thangkas and khukris are some of the best things to buy from Nepal.
Festivals in Nepal: Being home to both Hinduism and Buddhism, Nepal is home to a number of festivals all around the year. Dashain and Tihar are celebrated with much fervour since these two are the most popular festivals of the Hindus. Buddhists celebrate Buddha Jayanti. Teej is a local festival celebrated by the women of Nepal. Gai Jatra, Indra Jatra, Fagun Purnima or Holi and Losar are also observed here with bright colours and brighter spirits.

Trip to NepalKathmandu drivers kept on changing and car was small and last day it was so hot and a/c was not working
Trip to Tamil NaduWe went on 5day/4night trip to Nepal. The trips were well arranged - hotels, cab driver, etc. Can't make any complaints.
Trip to NepalThank you ashirvad travels for putting up so much effort to make my nepal trip memorable . It was my first trip with my fiance outside india and we had a great time in nepal . I had a tough time while returning when our car broke down but u guys did a awesome job arranging a alternate vehicle in a very small time . The driver deepak was very nice and guided us throughout the trip . Special thanks to SUMIT MISHRA to take care of all our need before , and throughout the journey ,you are a big asset to the company ,keep up the good work bro . Breakfast in the hotels was a bit disappointing but rest was excellent. Once again thank you ashirvaad travels and the team .
Trip to NepalIt was such an amazing experience. Our driver Pravin was very kind, helpful and keep us safe during the tour. The staff of our hotels was so kind, welcoming, cheerful and respectful. Vikram, Suyog, and the rest of the team in Hotel Temple Inn in Kathmandu were so helpful, full of energy. Bravo to them
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeelingoverall good experience but in Darjeeling hotel service is not good. visit Nepal border.
Trip to Nepaltrip was good. the trip was good.all the arrangements were fine. but I think the chitwan hotel Royal Safari was way too expensive. I could have better options at their in that price also they charged too much for cultural program.
Trip to NepalThe overall experience of booking through Travel Triangle was quite good . The concept is effective , as one gets directed to specialists for region one is travelling to . The initial interactions with the portal are quite professional and transparent in that it provides one with several independant quotes to choose from . However , in our case the travel partner that we chose , M/s.TripMasters , could do with a little more expertise with respect to i) Knowledge about various tariiffs involved etc. In our case we ended up paying approx. extra 10 % for the Hotel at the last stage as one us was an NRI . The travel partner cannot say this was unknown to them as thte flight tickets booked by them was basis IDs which clearly indicated nationalities . ii) The travel partner should update themselves with local holidays & events etc. at the destination .In our case due to elections in Nepal we lost a whole day and paid extra on travel alterations. iii) It would also do well to employ drivers who spend long durations in transit with the travellers to be a little more knowledgeable about local culture etc. if not to the extent of being a tour guide . The choice of hotels was quite satisfactory and itinerary very well explained and adhered to except for the above , in this case . We realised that one need not be a professional mountaineer to experience the mountains . While in Nepal one should not return without experiencing the mountains.There are options that one can choose to experience mountain trekking . Travel Traingle provides ample travel options to choose from and one can tailor one's requirements to needs and be assured of reasonable charges according to ones need. .
Trip to NepalThough initially unhappy it was all well in the end. Mr. Amit and mr. Roshan made our trip memorable. They were very helpful and cooperative. I have no hesitation in recommending others to choose this organization for their travel needs. N. Chandrasekhar. Travel organization and weather God made our trip truly enjoyable. N. Chandrasekhar.
Trip to Nepalvisit was good & quite exiting.journey was comfortable with enowa car except poor road conditions in almost all part of NEPAL. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE ON CABLE CAR WAS EXCELLENT.ACCOMODATION OK EXCEPT AT LUMBINI BORDER WHICH WAS MUCH BELOW OUR EXPECTATIONS COMPARED TO POKHERA AND KATHMANDU.MY ADVISE TO OTHERS IS STAY AT LUMBINI OR IN BHARAHWA MARKET NOT ON BORDER.. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE AND MARKETING IN POKHERA
