Best places to visit in Nepal

For decades, a trip to Nepal has been the dream; the ultimate goal of many people. It is a destination known the world over. Despite the devastating earthquake that his the country in Spring 2015, Nepal, also known as "the Home of the Gods", has quickly rebounded and a trip there is still extraordinary. Whatever you choose to do, you are bound to return from your trip a changed person.

Nepal is so diverse that it often feels like a thousand different destinations in one. To help you make your decisions, the entire Evaneos Travel family and those who love Nepal will share their experiences and provide advice as to the landmarks you just cannot miss out during your trip.

The capital city, Kathmandu, is a pure jewel. Nowhere else in the country will you experience such cultural diversity. It's quite easy to pass hours away on Durbar Square without even noticing the time go by. Pashupatinath is a sacred location with an absolutely incredible atmosphere. Many visitors say that they've never experienced such strong emotions than they did here. Also near the capital, Swayambhunath is an equally important religious centre, but this time of Buddhism. With its beautiful lake, Pokhara is not to be missed if you're keen on walking. It attracts hikers of all levels. The roof of the world, Mount Everest, is in fact not just for experienced mountaineers.

Besides these classic tourist attractions, the Durbar Square in Patan, the grand Stupa in Boudhanath and the typical mountain life in Gorkha are equally sensational landmarks for those looking to discover the profound, typical and authentic aspects of Nepal. A trip to Nepal is the ideal opportunity to follow the trails of a tiger in Chitwan National Park as well as in Badiya National Park.

So, it's now up to you to decide which of these ideas will inspire your upcoming trip to Nepal!
