Major Attractions of Visit Nepal Year 2020 Tour

Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and is situated in a valley, approximately at a height of 4,600 ft., surrounded by four major mountains namely Shivapuri, Phulchowki, Nagarjun, and Chandragiri. The city is the gateway to Nepal Tourism and the center of the country’s economy. Its history dates back to over 2000 years ago and it was on the ancient trade route between India and Tibet, which caused a fusion of artistic and architectural traditions of other cultures that can be witnessed even today.

Pashupatinath

Pashupatinath is Nepal’s most important Hindu temple and stands on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. The temple is located 100m away from the end of the runway at Kathmandu’s International Airport and is a powerhouse of Hindu spiritual power to where devotees of Shiva and Sadhus flock from across the entire sub-continent. Non-Hindus cannot enter the main temples but the surrounding complex of Shaivite shrines, Lingams, and Ghats (stone steps) is fascinating and definitely worth the visit.

Boudhanath

Famed for its Stupa, Boudhanath pulsates with life as thousands of pilgrims gather daily to make a ritual circumnavigation of the dome beneath the watchful eyes of the Buddha. This is one of the few places in the world where Tibetan Buddhist culture is accessible and unfettered. The lanes around the Stupa are crammed with Monasteries and workshops that make butter lamps, ceremonial horns, Tibetan drums, singing bowls, and plumed hats for Lamas and other essential Buddhist paraphernalia.

Swayambhunath

Swayambhunath is a place that offers one of the definitive experiences in Kathmandu. This sacred locale, a monkey temple, is always mobbed by monkeys and is a chaotic jumble of Hindu and Buddhist iconography. A gleaming white Stupa makes for its center and is topped by a gilded spire painted with the eyes of the Buddha. What makes it an absorbing experience are the ancient carvings made into every spare inch of space and the smell of incense and butter lamps hanging heavy in the air.

Durbar Square

In history, Durbar square was the king’s seat of ruling and it is here that kings were crowned and their undisputed authority legitimized. Today, it is the traditional heart of the old town and still boasts of some of the world’s most spectacular architecture. The entire square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is made up of three loosely linked squares and many terraced platforms, which make for a great spot to view Kathmandu in motion.

Pokhara

The beautiful city widening of the Seti Gandaki valley in the eastern region of Nepal located in the mid-hill (Madhya Pahadi) of the Himalayas in Nepal is known as Pokhara. The elevation of this area rises very quickly from about 1000m to over 7500m within 30km distance. Hence, the precipitation rate in the area is the highest in Nepal. The Seti Gandaki (White River) is the main river flowing through the city heart and the tributaries have created several gorges and canyons in and around the whole city which gives interestingly long sections of terrace features to the city and surroundings. The Phewa Lake, Begnas Lake, Rupa Lake, and 5 others including Patale Chhango (David’s Fall), Mahadev Cave, Mahendra Cave, and the deep forest (Rani Ban) are the major attractions for tourists. The lowest elevation of the city is 827m from where the views Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Mt. Manaslu (8163m) including the virgin peak Mt. Fishtail (The Machhapuchhare 6,993m) can be observed clearly. Bindabasini temple, Barahi temple, Kalika temple, Tibetan camps, and monasteries are other cultural and religious attractions for the tourists. Hence, Pokhara is the most popular natural, cultural, and adventurer international tourist destination in Nepal.

Chitwan National Park

One of the UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites declared in 1979 located in the Chitwan district of Nepal is known as Chitwan National Park. Chitwan lies in southern central Nepal and the National Park covers 932sq.km with deciduous forests overlooking the floodplains of Narayani, Rapti, and Reu rivers. The park headquarters at Kasara is a 21 km drive from Bharatpur, which is 20 minutes by air or 146 km by road from Kathmandu. Chitwan National Park offers a wilderness of rich ecosystem that includes mammals, birds, reptiles, and water animals of several kinds. The highlights of this park are the 500 Asian one-horned rhinoceros and some hundred nocturnal Royal Bengal Tigers that live in the dense forests of the park including several other wildlife animals and plants.   

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill Panorama Trek is suited for beginners of trekking with limited time expecting the real experience of Trekking in Nepal. This trekking package route is a colorful short route within the Annapurna region, which winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests, and past icy waterfalls where you can stop to cool your face during the trek. Around every corner, you can view an exciting glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which may be revealed to you as you reach the high points of your trek.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Panorama Trek in the Annapurna foothills to the viewpoint on Poon Hill offers all the best views of trekking in Nepal. The trail of Ghorepani Poonhill panorama Trek passes through rhododendron forest and fascinating indigenous Gurung and Magar villages with nice opportunity to witness the culture and tradition of Nepalese countryside, full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurna range with the picturesque peak of Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) dominating the skyline. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. A rewarding trek that may enjoy by everyone who is a lover of nature and the beautiful landscape is Ghorepani Poonhill Trek.
