Nepal will intrigue, surprise and challenge you - in the very best way possible! Popular amongst hikers and mountaineers, this country is home to some of the world’s highest mountains including number one, Mount Everest.
But you don’t need to be a hardcore hiker to experience the breathtaking Himalayas as there are epic views from the town of Nagarkot where you can admire striking sunrises and sunsets whilst feeling like you’re above the clouds.
The capital city of Kathmandu is an experience in itself - chaotic but bursting with action. Full of ancient treasures with a rich history, Nepal is also known for being the birthplace of Buddha so there’s a real peace in the air everywhere, but most especially in the town of Lumbini where he was born.
A super affordable country to explore, you don’t have to hold back on excursions and meals to really experience it all. Other cities worth visiting include the charming Pokhara and the mediaeval Bhaktapur.
Soak in the peaceful vibes, strikingly stunning mountain ranges, and sacred traditions and holy sites in this heavenly country of Nepal!
If you’re heading to Nepal to trek the peaks, plan your trip around October - December (autumn) to experience clear skies and exceptional mountain visibility.
From February - April (spring) is also a pleasant period to visit as flowers begin to bloom and the sun shines.
