Some of the world’s most majestic landscapes are the top tourist attractions in Nepal. Mt. Everest alone places the country several notches higher than the rest. Apart from sightseeing, the country is open for adventures that any adrenaline junkie would like. Whether you’re looking for thrills or awe-inspiring sights, you should go see the best attractions they have to offer. Nepal borders India to the north east.
The iconic Mt. Everest is undeniably one of the top tourist attractions in Nepal. It is the world’s highest mountain. It is known as the international border between Nepal and China. Many mountaineers have attempted to reach the top through expeditions but only a few were successful. If you want to climb Mt. Everest you should hire the assistance of a professional mountain guide. However, this might cost you a large sum of money.
The Annapurna mountain range is another stunning tourist spot in Nepal. It forms the Himalayas and quite known for trekking. Two of the most popular trails in Annapurna include the Annapurna Circuit and Kaligandaki River Valley trek. The circuit goes around the Annapurna Range. Meanwhile, the river valley trek leads to the deepest valley in the world. You can get back to the base camp by following the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek.
For a more humbling experience, consider travelling to Lumbini. It is the birthplace of Sakyamuni Buddha. It is where Queen Mayadevi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautama who later founded Buddhism, making it a holy place among other things. The Chitwan National Park gives you a glimpse of local plant and wildlife. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to different species of monkeys and birds, crocodiles, tigers, rhinos, and sloths. Elephants may also be seen passing through the park. These gentle giants are domesticated and may be used for sightseeing tours of the park.
Finally, there is Nagarkot. Tourists frequent it for its magnificent views of the Himalayas. Surrounded by a thick pine tree forest, there’s no better place to admire the scenic mountains of Nepal.
