Going to Nepal and want to know the best places to visit? Pokhara, Chitwan, and Kathmandu are among the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal for good reason! I combine these three places and give examples of why they are the gates to everything in Nepal!
Nepal is a mysterious and powerful country that offers a world of pleasure and travel for its visitors. Located in South Asia, Guest Posting Nepal is a relatively small country (about the size of the Arkansas region). Although small, traveling in the country is not an easy task, as the state of the country and the difficulties of Nepal, there is much to offer. As someone who has never been to a country before, it can be difficult to know where to go and what to expect.
In this fast-paced Nepali article, I introduce three tourist destinations that every traveler should see. In addition, the reason these people make the list is that they are the gateway to almost all the exciting experiences and places you can visit in Nepal. The three areas I will discuss include:
Pokhara – City of Lakes and Beauty:
Pokhara is probably the most popular tourist destination in Nepal. Located in the foothills of the Annapurna Range, Pokhara offers a gateway to the north, opening many of the most famous hiking trails in Nepal – such as the annual Annapurna Base Camp, which accounts for about 70% of all pedestrians. to visit Nepal.
Even if you are not planning on walking, the city has a lot to offer itself. As a Lakeside tourist destination, following Phewa Tal (lake), it offers access to the beautiful views of the northern mountains, adventure games, tourist attractions, and other relaxation you will ever experience.
With regard to adventure games, there are a few different options to choose from, for example, in Pokhara you can:
- Ultralight Plane
- Bungee jumping
- Many more!
My favorite thing is to take advantage of the paragliding opportunity in Pokhara on Sarangkot Hill – the most famous paragliding site in all of Nepal. With a view of the city and the Annapurna Range to the north, a 30-minute flight that you wish you had taken longer!
If you decide to take advantage of paragliding in Pokhara, I strongly recommend that you stop driving for 30 minutes and up, and skip Annapurna Cable Car. A quick and easy trip up to Sarangkot will give you a relaxing experience and a view of the lake and the city below in a brand new cable car. Additionally, the cable car has just opened (2022) and is the fastest way to climb a mountain, taking only 10 minutes! In addition to paragliding, the cable car will take you to the top of Pokhara with great restaurants and hotels to stay in. Finally, on a clear day, you will be able to see a panoramic view of the Himalayan mountains.
After your improved leisure and entertainment time in Pokhara, it’s time to catch a flight home and head for Chitwan!
Chitwan – Hello Elephants
Chitwan offers a completely different experience for Nepali tourists. Located in the Terai of Nepal, the landscape and culture of this area are completely transformed and adapted to the typical hilly terrain. Spending a few days in Chitwan is a great way to complete your trip to Nepal, especially after your visit to Pokhara with self-sacrificing sports and hiking.
Chitwan is a popular destination for Jungle activities, cultural experiences, aquatic activities, wildlife, and bird watching. Getting to Chitwan is very easy as you can get a bus from Pokhara and Kathmandu, or catch a plane – saving a few hours on transport. Some of the most popular activities in Chitwan National Park include Jungle Safari, Jeep Drive and Safari, Bird Watching, and nature tour, and it is also home of the One-Horned Rhino.
The Chitwan area is also rich in culture and is home to the Tharu natives. There is very diverse and has different cultural practices, all of which are capable of producing a variety of handicrafts – colorful baskets made of local grass. In addition, if you look at hearing many treasures and religious activities, Chitwan is considered a holy place and is home to tourist attractions and temples such as Devghat Dham, Harihar Mandir, and Ganeshthan, Bikram Baba, and other famous temples. Lastly, you can take part in other adventure sports while in the area and including Rafting and Kayaking.
Now that you have seen and seen the hills and the Terai of Nepal, it is time to return to Kathmandu!
Kathmandu – City of temples and more!
Kathmandu, popularly known as the “city of temples” has much to offer in addition to the temples, art, architecture, culture, and heritage of which it is famous. Of course, all these factors should be considered when visiting the Kathmandu village. However, if you want to get more out of town after seeing durbar squares, you can use the best sights, hiking, and other activities.
Some of the most popular hiking trails in Kathmandu are:
Chandragiri is a popular hiking destination in Kathmandu. As many people take the opportunity to walk to Chandragiri to escape the chaos of the city. The trail runs through forests and small valleys, and when you reach the Chandragiri Hills you can see the spectacular panorama of the Himalayan Ranges.
Jamacha Gumba is located on a hill in Shivapuri National Park. The hike to Jamacho is steep and cuts through the jungle. As challenging as it may be, the towering peak of the hilltop makes it all worthwhile as it offers spectacular views of the Kathmandu Valley and the majestic Himalayan mountains to the north on a clear day.
