Considered as the 5th in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel in 2017 list, Nepal has totally changed the hyped “vacation” and given it a whole new diverse Himalayan experience instead. 

How to get there

Nepal is the perfect destination for budget travelers. There is no need to subtract such a big fraction from your money to experience its tranquility. One of the cheapest ways of getting there is via Asian hubs. The only direct west European flights are from London to Kathmandu.

Nepal after the quake

Rich in immaculate mountain views, Nepal is paradise for trekkers and nature-lovers who prefer to go back to their roots. Though it was hit by a series of earthquakes last 2015, Nepal has slowly risen from its deep ashes. The tourism industry, for one, has helped the Nepali get back up on their feet and bounce back.

Places to visit

First of all, Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, will always be on a tourist’s itinerary. In the mazelike alleys surrounded by the Himalayan mountains, Durbar Square sits at the heart of the city. Here, the recent movie “Doctor Strange” was filmed, showcasing the city's fine architecture.

Another staple for Nepali culture and heritage is Patan. Also known as “Manigal”, it is famous for its traditional arts and crafts. Wood and stone carvings are also prominent here.

Trekking in Nepal

As for the trekkers, it’s going to be tough. Nepal has a series of treks and annually, around 200,000 trekkers attempt to climb one of these. In Thamel, there are a number of trekking agencies that will offer you a wide variety of treks.

To name the top 3 from Bookmundi, the first one is the Everest Base Camp. It is around 12-13 days. It is sort of expensive but it will give you the once in a lifetime opportunity to come face-to-face with the world’s highest peak – Mount Everest.

At 5,600 meters, there is also a point wherein you will witness pristine peaks such as Lhotse and Nuptse, where the trail is also great. .

Second is the Annapurna Circuit, which spans for 13-14 days and in this interval, you’ll get to trek the entire Annapurna Region. Here, you will be able to cross the world’s widest pass, the Thorong La Pass at a cheap price.

Lastly, the Annapurna Base Camp will grant you to come face-to-face with the world’s most dangerous mountain to climb. Spanning 9-10 days, it’s an cheap, authentic and a real trekking experience.
