Best Places To Visit In Nepal
Nestled in between two of the largest countries in the world, Nepal has successfully held its own against the world when it comes to tourism. It is one of the most beautiful country destinations in the Himalayas and is visited every year in flocks from India and other countries of Asia and from the west as well. From high, snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna and Manaslu to the green wilderness of Chitwan, from the long list of temples and monasteries to the long trails of hiking tours, Nepal sightseeing and tourism will never disappoint you as a traveller.
Temples in Nepal:
Nepal, although a secular state like India, has a majority population who adhere to the Hindu faith. Since its inception up until 2007, it was a Hindu nation. But the bygone years have left behind an excellent collection of temples scattered all over the country. There are monasteries and Buddhist shrines as well since Buddhism is the second-most followed faith in Nepal. Pashupatinath Temple near Kathmandu needs to the introduction at all. It is by far the most popular Nepal destination from India. Next up is Changu Narayan built by the Licchavis on Dolagiri hilltop. Swayambhunath temple, Budhanilkantha and Manakamana temple are some of the other Nepal tourist attractions when it comes to temples.
Honeymoon destinations in Nepal:
Nepal is a very much underrated country when it comes to deciding honeymoon destinations. But there are some charming Nepal places to visit for honeymoon which set the perfect tone for a romantic honeymoon. The mythical aura of Mustang, the heart-aching scenery of Sarangkot, the snow-covered streets of Daman the pretty-as-picture city of lakes, Pokhara – all make for just the place you would like to spend a week with your newlywed spouse and get to know each other even better.
Here are the places to visit in Nepal to know the country the best one can.
The capital of the country is also the most attractive Nepal tourist place, and for the right reasons. From temples like Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath and Boudhanath Stupa to shopping places like Thamel street and the iconic Durbar Square – Kathmandu is the giant buzzing centre of the entire country.
Fortunately, Pokhara and its surroundings were spared in the earthquake. Pokhara maintains all the pristine beauty that the city was blessed with. It is called the city of lakes. Phewa Lake is the largest and attracts paddle-boaters. Begnas Lake, Rupa Lake, Khaste Lake and Tilicho Lake of Pokhara are easily the hidden places in Nepal, yet to be touched by the cascading footfall of tourism.
Nuwakot is not as big a tourist destination in Nepal as the other two. But it certainly has an idyllic, old-world charm that draws tourists. The Nuwakot Palace on the top of the hill and its brilliant Durbar Square, tossing back and forth from the Mallas and the Gorkhas, has now finally rested as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The pedestrian-friendly town of Bhaktapur and its red-brick durbar square is one of the best Nepal points of interest. Although much of it now is in ruins and rubbles because of the earthquake, the city’s beauty and dignity have not taken a hit.
Lumbini is the city both historically and spiritually important, as this is the birthplace of Buddha in 563 BC. The city is home to many archaeological finds dating to that era.

Koteswara Rao Bontha
Koteswara's 3 days trip to NepalVery good experience... nice arrangements done by travel agent
Pbaldock's 6 days trip to NepalSo one review, two experiences. SNOWYODA. 10/10 Excellent Snowyoda and Sumit in particular were just fantastic; the holiday was excellent with personal service in perfect English (turns out Sumit has a Masters from Bath Uni) well beyond expectations! They organised a superb two week tour in mid May 2020 and even after we were stranded with the Covid19 lockdown in Nepal, Sumit continued to give support, help, local advice and assistance... Invaluable in such a bad situation. Organising and planning the 14 day tour was so easy, and once there we continued to adapt and tailor the tour to suit our needs. We started in Kathmandu, then flew to Pokhara before taking the car to Bandipur and Chitwan... all fantastic but gliding down the river in a canoe at Chitwan with a cacophony of birdsong was just magical. We finished in Nagarkot with each day starting with sunrise over the Himalayas and Everest; all without leaving you bed. Great hotels, drivers, itineraries in an amazing country and a very safe pair of hands tour operator- Snowyoda. Totally recommended. Thank you Sumit and Sabu. TRAVEL TRIANGLE ... 3/10 very poor. Once we had agreed to book with Snowyoda TT were a nightmare. They sent a link to payment, but it didn’t work, wouldn’t take enough to pay for the tour, etc. So agreed to pay by Bank Transfer... sent the money (£ thousand ++) and 10 days later they hadn’t received it.... very stressful . Had to get my bank to request the money back and it turns out the TT bank account number they gave me didn’t exist, the transfer had been rejected, they did not know. I got the money back, but again they could not send a link to pay that worked....total shambles. In the end I paid Snowyoda direct and it was all as sweet as apple pie after that once TT were not involved.
Kavita's 7 days trip to NepalTrip was overall good, enjoyed a lot. Only suggestion for improvement that trip would be much more excellent they mentioned before that inspite of inclusive of conveyance charge we have to pay + inclusive of breakfast charges we have to pay +inclusive of toll charges we have to pay for all these. The trip was planned excellent, and every point was covered. Nepal is a very beautiful and clean place.
Dhruv's 7 days trip to NepalVaishali hotel in kathmandu had week wifi. Initially the driver that we guy didn't know anything. He was totally new and new drivers are not recommended to go on a commercial hill trip. Agency changed the driver and this one also didn't know route to Nagarkoat and chandragiri. Driver was very helpful and experienced otherwise. We missed Lumbini because of inefficiency of driver management. Nagarkoat sunrise and hotel stay Thamel market stay
Tushar's 7 days trip to NepalThe overall experience was okay but expected a lot from trip.
Lunamohanty's 7 days trip to NepalEverything was really really fantastic from hotel to cab while picking my parents till dropping them everything was fantastic and well arranged
Arjun's 6 days trip to NepalOur trip to Nepal was a mixed bag of memorable and things that could have been avoided. Let me start with the positives first: 1. Mr. Tripathi had structured the trip well. He had optimised the routes to ensure we spent more time sightseeing than on the road travelling. 2. The paper work for entry to Nepal was quick and we did not face any issue there. 3. The hotel bookings too were seamless and we did not find any issues during check-in and check-out. 4. He stood by to most of his commitments and was always a patient listener. 5. The driver knew the Nepal map at the back of his head and drove safely. The things that could have been better are: 1. The driver should be made aware of all the places that are to be covered. There were certain places that we were told to us but the driver wasn't aware and it always led to confusion. It always ended up with a call to Mr. Tripathi, thus wasting some time during the trip. 2. The driver had a habit of misleading us and had several conflicting arguments to avoid visiting a place despite having promised to us by the agent. He either acted unaware or said that the place wasn't accessible to Indian cabs or he wasn't aware of the route. All these excuses were proven to be lies as he subsequently blurted out that he had visited the place earlier. 3. The driver looked into his comfort than ours, he would first find a parking spot and then make us walk a considerable distance instead of dropping us at the gate and then finding a spot to park. I'm stating this as my parents are old and it was an issue making them walk the extra mile. 4. The driver had a bad habit of chewing pan masala and rolling down the window from time to time to spit out the same. Not only was it annoying but my dad sitting at the back seat was never able to open his side of the window due to this unhygienic behaviour. 5. On day 1, due to the pt. 2 we couldn't see many temples of Lumbini from inside as the place closes by 5:00 pm. On the last day to avoid visiting Doleshwar temple the driver lied that the temple we saw at Darbar Square was the one that we were looking for.
Ashutosh's 6 days trip to NepalIt was really great Nepal trip... Except for chitwan hotel and their facility it was beyond my expected costly . They took 22000 INR for food and jungle safari. I think they took lots of commission in this... Rest pokhra, lumbini and kathmandu was great Pokhra
